Oasys aims to provide an ecosystem enabling blockchain-based games’ development and distribution. The company addresses game developers’ challenges when using blockchain technology through its various partnerships.

In this regard, Oasys has announced that it is working with the research institute of Bandai Namco to develop a second NFT project. The company said it will create a dedicated wallet for the Oasys blockchain.

Oasys’ advisor Hajime Nakatani will supervise the second project, OASYX series 2: RYUZO. He is best known for his work on the popular Tekken series.

According to Daiki Moriyama, the director of Oasys, the company is excited to launch the OASYX series 2. It follows the success of the first project, which attracted over 50,000 participants. The new project will focus on developing NFTs for gamers.

“With the guidance from Hajime Nakatani, one of the legendary creators in our industry, and adapting leading-edge technologies to enhance the NFT experience, OASYX will continue to accelerate adoption of NFTs and blockchain gaming, and bring the endless potential of blockchain gaming to reality,” Moriyama said.

Nakatani established Bandai Namco Research in 2019 to create new value in the entertainment industry by developing cutting-edge technologies such as xR and AI. He joined the company in 2022.

According to Nakatani, RYUZO is being developed in collaboration with DJT, Oasys and Bandai Namco Research. Through the partnership, the companies can share the knowledge and experiences gained from their research with the global community.

“I think it is wonderful that we can share this growth and evolution with everyone in the world of NFTs through this project with OASYS and DJT. I look forward to continue pursuing the possibilities of new entertainment.”

The RYUZO project will also use artificial intelligence (AI), allowing users to nurture their NFTs. They can hatch their MARYU into RYU. Then, the RYU token becomes a non-transferable Soulbound Token.

An RYU can create new versions of MARYU, which can be issued to the next generation. These new versions will be transferred to the Oasys Verses blockchain.

The seven Verses that can bridge RYU and MARYU are Home, MCH, Chain, TCG, Saakuru, Yoldo and DM2 Verses. The developers also have plans to add more Verses later on.

The utility of OASYX’s NFT allows users to benefit from Oasys’ ecosystem. The company also plans to work with other game projects to develop additional features, such as new characters and in-game gadgets.

The RYU and MARYU functions will be able to be interconnected on June 29. The latter’s nurturing function will be released later in July.
