Oasys will hand out the collaboration NFTs within March 2023 and the reveals for them will be in April 2023. Yu Suzuki is the director of Oasyx and artist Godtail designed the characters. The Virtua Fighter NFTs are technically part of the first set of Oasyx projects from Oasys. In total, there will be 10,000 NFTs in the first part of Oasyx and of that number, 1000 of them will be collaboration characters.

These eleven characters are the ones Oasys chose for its project:

  • Akira Yuki
  • Dural
  • Jacky Bryant
  • Jeffry McWild
  • Kage-Maru
  • Lau Chan
  • Lion Rafale
  • Pai Chan
  • Sarah Bryant

Suzuki commented that during his time at Sega, Virtua Fighter was revolutionary for being one of the first fighting games to utilize 3DCG technology. He thanks all of the fans for loving and supporting the series. He hopes that the NFTs using new blockchain technology will bring new entertainment to the series’s fans.

The Virtua Fighter NFTs will have their reveal in April 2023. Other companies interested in NFTs in Japan include Square Enix and TBT Lab.
