New Konami Financial Results Confirm More NFTs on the Way

It seems Konami will continue selling NFTs. The company released its Consolidated Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended December 31, 2021. In it, it brought up its outlook for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2022. When it did, it made sure to bring up NFTs when discussing its plans for digital entertainment going forward.

The exact statement on NFTs was brief, and Konami only brought it up in that one portion of the report. It noted, “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.”

So far, Konami has only sold Castlevania NFTs. Its auction took place back in January 2022. It earned over $162,000 from it. The items included images and songs from the series. In some cases, there would be animated clips of certain actions that appear in-game. The official website is live and links to possible auctions.

As for other content, Konami mentioned its intent to make Yu-Gi-Oh a priority. It mentioned Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel, em>Yu-Gi-Oh! Cross Duel, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links. It also said that it will be working on Dance aRound, ColorCoLotta: Frozen Island, GrandCross Gold, and QuizKnock Stadium for arcades.
