Konami, a Japanese video game company, is seeking developers with expertise in web3 and metaverse. In addition, the company intends to introduce an NFT marketplace at a time when the majority of other gaming companies have abandoned them.
On October 13, the Japanese entertainment conglomerate and video game developer Konami announced that it was hiring staff for Web3 and metaverse development. The company’s plans to introduce an NFT marketplace for trading digital in-game items is particularly intriguing.
To create new experiences like Web3 and the metaverse, Konami is hiring people to work in system construction and service development roles.
According to a press release,
We have been conducting research and development to incorporate the latest technology into games and contents, and plan to launch a service where players can trade their in-game NFTs (digital items) through a unique distribution platform using blockchain.
The company thinks that as the entertainment industry develops, new technology, like an NFT marketplace, will aid in growing its business.
There are a number of intellectual assets owned by Konami that could support any metaverse aspirations. Castlevania and Metal Gear are two of the company’s IPs that are particularly well-liked by the gaming community.
