Since then, the Virtua Fighter series has grown to be loved by many players and continues to be supported by numerous fans today.
Mr. Suzuki continues, “Through my work supervising the development of OASYX’s unique worldview, I am delighted to combine innovative technology in the form of blockchain-based NFTs, with three titles from the Virtua Fighter series to create new entertainment for a wide range of gaming fans.”
