Thirdverse Group and BLOCKSMITH&CO. are joining forces to bring manga and anime series Captain Tsubasa to Web3 gaming space. First published in 1981, Captain Tsubasa has influenced football players and fans all around the world.
The new blockchain-based game Captain Tsubasa Rivals will include characters from the Captain Tsubasa series. Players can train characters and compete against other players. When playing versus other players, items can be collected and then later exchanged for rewards such as new characters as NFTs.
Yoichi Takahashi, author of Captain Tsubasa said:
“Being a part of a game using new technologies, such as the blockchain and NFTs, is something new. Although the game is still in the works, I have high expectations for the experience it will bring for players. I hope that everyone will be able to enjoy this new game.”
Players can also generate their own NFTs and train them using tokens called Tsubasauts, which can be earned through the story mode.
Captain Tsubasa Rivals is set to launch by the end of 2022.
