This Web3 fighting game will be made possible through a partnership between ONE Championship and Notre Game, a subsidiary of the popular video game producer Animoca Brands.
The pioneering game development company Animoca Brands continues to make steady progress in its stance and action plan on new product development in the Web3 field and with the implementation of NFTs.
This is not the first time the company has been involved with Web3 and blockchain technologies. One of its efforts has been in relation to the investment fund for the metaverse which they announced in December 2022.
Another precedent has been the linking of Animoca Brands with Animoca Brands with Cool Cats for future NFT game releases. We can also mention the announcement of the Animoca Brands’ NFT Club and Planet Hollywoodamong many other innovative efforts.
This time, Notre Gamea subsidiary of Animoca Brands, has announced a very important partnership with the world’s largest martial arts organization, called the ONE Championship. The objective of the partnership is the development of a game for mobile devices named One Fight Arena.
This NFT game will be launched for Android or iOS devices, and will be available for download on Google Play and App Store, which will be totally free of charge.
In this way, the game’s fighters will have their respective NFT to provide players with authentic and verifiable ownership, in addition to having a certain level of rarity for each of the characters.
The One Fight Arena game will have a roster of diverse fighters, and will have its main feature of focusing on strategic gameplay, through a first-person gameplay mode, as stated in the announcement.
In this way, players will be able to choose from a variety of ONE athletes, including the legendary Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, o Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnonto carry out the career of his character throughout the game, through an immersive first-person point of view.
Hua Fung Tehco-founder and president of One Championship, has expressed that the launch of this game is a way to provide fans of mixed martial arts with a new innovative experience thanks to blockchain technology and NFTs.
In addition, he said in a statement that they are very excited to be working with a leading video game company like Animoca Brands for the launch of the One Fight Arena game, whose development is enhanced by Web3 technology.
On the other hand, Yat Siuthe current CEO of Animoca Brands, expressed a position similar to Teh’s, and regarding the development of games with Web3 technology. In this regard, he stressed the importance of providing players with true digital ownership at the core of upcoming games.
One thing to consider is that for those players who do not want to interact with the Web3 layer, they will still be able to play One Fight Arena as if it were a traditional mobile game, but without the extra spice of owning the digital assets that the game will offer.
According to the dates confirmed by the companies, a testing phase of the game’s performance will be carried out in Q3 of 2023, and finally the official worldwide launch will take place in Q1 of 2024.
