A special VR museum experience focused on the art of Yoshitaka Amano will appear in a digital museum. However, the website also mentions the inclusion of NFTs that will be released through ZIELCHAIN in 2023. Yoshitaka Amano also released a statement regarding the production of NFTs associated with his name and artwork. However, a release date VR Art Museum experience was not included in the initial announcement. Instead, the website simply states that more information about this “first-of-its-kind” installment will appear in the future.
Regarding Amano’s statement concerning the production of NFTs, this is what he had to say:
This work is not mine alone, but I value the “connection” with everyone who participates in this project, and I’m trying to weave a story while the participating members inspire each other.
I am very much looking forward to communicating with many people through this project and participating in this new initiative, where new values will emerge from my drawings, or where something completely unexpected will be proposed.
In a sense, I think of this work as a challenge beyond my understanding.
Through “ZIELCHAIN,” let’s connect the ideas of people all over the world and turn page after page of the story together.
A preview of the museum features a motion graphic of key artwork from Final Fantasy III. The VR museum will have two different themes. The first is “candy,” which will involve artwork inspired by a digital girl. The second is “crystal,” and that will feature his work from various numbered entries in the Final Fantasy series.
The Yoshitaka Amano VR Art Museum experience will appear sometime in the future, with NFTs releasing in 2023.
