Apex Game Studios will incubate its first game: Warrior.
Japan, Tokyo – Tomonobu Itagaki, responsible for the series Dead or Alive, and the successful re-launch of the Ninja Gaiden franchise for the original Xbox in 2004, announced the launch of Apex Game Studios and explained that it will be developed within Web3 and has already incubated its first game: Warrior.
Warrior aims to solve the performance, security and sustainability issues of GameFi 1.0 and achieve a breakthrough in GameFi 2.0. Based on the gameplay of AAA games, an excellent economic system is supported to maintain a long-lasting game cycle by completing the exchange of assets in the economic model through the activities of competition, battle and exploration in the game.
Warrior removes the "money game" mode and is more accessible and profitable than traditional games. Itagaki expressed that one of the main characteristics a blockchain game must have to succeed is to be a real game that is fun and attracts attention — precisely what his team wants to achieve with Warrior.
With more than 30 years of experience, Tomonobu Itagaki said that entering the field of Web3.0 is completely new for him but really rewarding since he can work with new technologies. Although the industry is still brand-new, Itagaki believes it will grow steadily.
His Dead or Alive and Ninja Gaiden series have created multiple sales records in the Japanese game industry, which has made him an icon and one of the highest-grossing game series producers in Japan.
He explained his intention to make games—real experiences—where people can compete against each other. He also commented that he was interested in not only developing games based on nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, but also the Metaverse and is planning to use the technologies as a great weapon. Itagaki believes it is vital to embrace the changes and take on the new challenges inherent in blockchain technology.
