Square Enix insists on integrating Blockchain elements into its games – News Bitcoin News

Square Enix, the Japanese gaming company, is pushing ahead with its vision of integrating blockchain elements into its games. In a recent interview, President Yosuke Matsuda spoke about the importance of user-generated content and the benefits that allowing this kind of development, as well as introducing blockchain-based self-sustaining economies, can bring for the future of the gaming industry.

Square Enix doubles Blockchain and autonomous content

Square Enix is ​​doubling its business plan to include blockchain elements in its games in the not-too-distant future. The company, which had already made plans to make a robust entry into the blockchain gaming world, now appears to be interested in using these tools to create self-sustaining economies in the gaming world.

Yosuke Matsuda, president of Square Enix, reiterated the compromise he and the company have in delivering some of these experiences in the future in a recent interview given to Yahoo News. For Matsuda, user-generated content is very important, and he insists on rewarding creators of this content directly with some form of game currency. He stated:

By utilizing technologies such as blockchain instead of relying on good intentions, if incentives are given to those who have contributed to the development, there is a possibility that content with innovative fun will be born from the user’s ideas.

This inclusion of user-generated content would also seemingly help create games that can thrive outside the hands of the original developers, even after the original support ceases, if there is sufficient interest from third-party creators.

Not the first time

This is not the first time that Matsuda has expressed its bid for the future of games and cryptocurrency elements. In a New Year’s letter in January, Matsuda revealed how he believes blockchain can change how players and builders can be a part of gaming experiences in a more immersive way.

On how to achieve this immersive commitment, Matsuda stated:

It is blockchain-based tokens that will enable this. By designing viable token economies in our games, we will enable self-sustaining game growth.

However, Square Enix has been quite conservative when it comes to designing a game with franchises like Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts around blockchain and token mechanics. In fact, Naoki Yoshida, director and producer of Final Fantasy XIV, ruled out any possibility of including NFTs in the game in February.

Other Japanese companies, such as Sega, have also been ambivalent when it comes to NFTs. While the company announced back in January that it might scrap NFT experiments if seen by gamers as a money grab, it also hinted at their possible inclusion as part of its “Super Game” framework.
