Konami caught a bit of flak for marking Castlevania’s 35th birthday with a sale of NFTs based on the series, and it seems that the negative press surrounding the technology hasn’t put the company off.
In its latest financial results breakdown, Konami addresses the topic of NFTs in its ‘Digital Entertainment’ section:
We will also be selling Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) in an effort to preserve content that has been loved by our customers as commemorative art.
One of the aforementioned Castlevania NFTs sold for over $26,000.
Veteran publisher Team17 was the latest company to feel the backlash against NFTs when it announced its MetaWorms platform. The company was forced to cancel the project and issue an apology when several of its development partners said they would no longer be working with the publisher.
