SEGA Sees NFTs In The Future Of Gaming

SEGA has reportedly been working on a new title, ‘SuperGame,’ that will encapsulate multiple games, and is now believed to incorporated cloud technology and/or NFTs. The historic gaming conglomerate has been cited to be expected to spend nearly a billion dollars over the next four to give years on the title. The individual titles are expected to be “interactive titles that go beyond the traditional framework of games.” Sega producer Masayoshi Kikuchi noted this about ‘SuperGame’ as well:

“It is a natural extension for the future of gaming that it will expand to involve new areas such as cloud gaming and NFT. We are also developing SuperGame from the perspective of how far different games can be connected to each other.”
