  • The game will be released on the Oasys chain.

Blockchain game developer, Double Jump Tokyo, announced that it has secured a license from Sega to develop a blockchain game based on the theme of “Sangokushi” (Three Kingdoms).

This is the first time Sega has partnered with a blockchain game developer to launch a Web3 game, indicating its interest in the space. Double Jump Tokyo plans to use Sega’s Sangokushi Taisen IP to develop an NFT trading card game.

Sangokushi Taisen is a hybrid physical and digital card game for the arcade, published by Sega in 2005. The real-time strategy-based game is set in the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history and is based on the 14th-century Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Over 500 million trading cards have been shipped since its release.

Double Jump Tokyo is now taking the game’s concept into the blockchain space. The new game will be released on Oasys, a blockchain that’s building a scalable crypto-native ecosystem for game developers, Web3 experts and blockchain gaming guilds. Oasys completed a $20 million private token sale round in July and recently partnered with Square Enix.

“With a unique architecture optimized for blockchain games, Oasys aims to solve obstacles for gamers, offering fast transactions and zero gas fees and providing users with a more comfortable gameplay experience,” said Hironobu Ueno, CEO and founder of Double Jump Tokyo.

Double Jump Tokyo has been participating as an early developer of the Oasys chain, along with other industry-leading game companies and blockchain technology companies. The consensus-building algorithm of the “Oasys” chain adopts the PoS (Proof of Stake) method, which is also environmentally friendly.

Founded in 2018, Double Jump Tokyo is a technology solution provider which partners with large-scale enterprises to help them successfully incorporate blockchain technologies into their games and company strategy. The company has partnered with some of the largest gaming companies, including Square Enix, Bandai Namco, and now Sega Corporation.
