The announcement was made today, September 4th 2023, at the Korea Blockchain Week conference held in Seoul, Korea.
What is “TOKYO BEAST” all about?
“TOKYO BEAST” is a crypto entertainment project that challenges to create a new entertainment experience by integrating crypto assets.
It is a completely original large-scale project with many experienced staff members who have developed and operated famous Japanese games, and a development budget unparalleled for a web3 game.
The company will provide an innovative and exciting entertainment experience that only “TOKYO BEAST” can provide, evolving Web3 games to a new stage.
Features of TOKYO BEAST
Pursuing pure fun
The team believes that it is important to be able to enjoy the game itself, outside of its web 3 features, so the emphasis was to create an authentic worldview, attractive characters, an enthusiastic battle system, and more.
The quality of the game is comparable to that of today’s leading smartphone games. The gaming experience is easy and seamless as the team eliminated barriers to starting the game, such as the initial NFT purchase and wallet connection, and aims to enable a wide range of participation, including general smartphone game users, and not just those confined to the Web3 world.
A series of characters that are attractive both as game characters and as NFT collections
The characters are designed to be interactive with an active role in the game and at the same time, to be recognized outside of the game as an NFT collection with a sophisticated visual style and high rarity. The project founders aim to create something that will be loved widely beyond borders and languages, just like “TOKYO BEAST”.
A fusion experience of the worldview and the crypto ecosystem
“TOKYO BEAST” emphasizes the importance of synchronizing the experience of immersing oneself in the worldview of the game with the real-world crypto ecosystem. “TOKYO BEAST” will provide an experience that unites each modular project and stakeholder in a single worldview, something that has not been done in existing web3 games.
Creating a new entertainment experience by predicting the winner of battles
Under a legitimate scheme, there will be a win/loss prediction function that can be enjoyed inside and outside the game. Users will be able to enjoy predicting the winner of battles using data. Battles will be streamed live simultaneously around the world, and users will be able to enjoy the excitement and frenzy of the experience by watching the battles with other users around the world.
The world of “TOKYO BEAST” continues to expand
All the module projects to be released in the future will be organically intertwined to deliver an unexplored entertainment experience through the synergy of crypto x content. Moreover, the team aims to continue expanding the world of “TOKYO BEAST” and the utility of $TBZ(*1).
As a first step, the following core module projects will be released sequentially worldwide in 2024. * “BASE”, a function to experience the unique economy of the “TOKYO BEAST” token “$TBZ * “FARM”, a function that allows users to experience NFT owner by cultivating “BEAST,” which will serve as data for NFT(*2).
TRIALS”, a function that allows users to experience being a hero who fights with dreams and romance on his/her shoulders.
During the second phase, a module project to provide new entertainment from various aspects to further expand the world of “TOKYO BEAST” and the utility of $TBZ will be mapped out and executed.
