While Harvestella is released today or big titles like Final Fantasy XVI are eagerly awaited by the community, it seems that Square Enix has decided to take another path, and it is not necessarily the one players were hoping for.
Square Enix and NFTs
Square Enix's interest in NFTs is not new, earlier in the year the company's management had made it clear that they were interested in NFTs. This time however, the problem goes deeper, Square Enix announced on November 3 the launch of a new franchise entirely based on NFTs.
Called "SYMBIOGENESIS," this collectible art project is expected to see the light of day during the first quarter of 2023. We don't have any more information on what the project really is at this time, with the trailer not revealing much. Is there really anything to expect from it though?
Between figurine including NFT and the announcement of the incorporation of the Blockchain, the players had already faced these announcements which were not unanimous.
Their current system, already heavily criticized, allowed owners of FF7 figurines to benefit from a 3D view of their object, a step between the real collection and the NFT.
The community extremely disappointed
An NFT project is one thing, the big disappointment of players on this one in particular is another. When the internet discovered a while ago that Square Enix had trademarked the name “Symbiogenesis” a wave of hype took the networks by surprise and the theories mostly went in the direction of a sequel to the very franchise . known from Parasite Eve. The reality is very different.
Many influencers had spoken on the subject and now have to face a big disappointment.
Since their announcement Twitter & Reddit quickly made it clear that the project was not welcome, however, it remains almost certain that Square Enix will bring it to fruition on schedule.
