Konami Will Release More NFTs To “Preserve Art”

Yes, the company located on Silent Hill will teach us about preservation.

Konami's Castlevania NFTs are on sale online

Konami, the studio that hasn’t released a Silent Hill game since 2014 and removed the popular PT for no reason, says it needs NFT to “preserve” its art. This comes from a Financial report released today, in which the company makes it clear that it will continue to roll out NFT despite opposition from fans.

The studio, which hasn’t done much to gain fan love in recent years, made it clear in the report that NFTs will be part of its business going forward. Hitherto, the only series that Konami has done is Castlevaniabut this development indicates that other franchises in the company’s portfolio could receive similar treatment this year.

After going into detail about other forms of digital items sold in various Konami games, the NFT will then be covered. “We will also be selling Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) in an effort to preserve content already loved by our customers as a piece of celebratory art,” it said, without elaborating. In what form will it take place?

The excuse for using NFT in the name of “protection” has left fans scratching their heads. Many wonder what exactly the NFT is conserving, as artwork from games like Castlevania can simply be shared online with the same effect. If artists’ compensation for their work is the issue, physical prints can be sold as merchandise.

One thing that will be preserved, however, is Konami’s profits from training. Back in January, we reported that The company made $150,000 from the Castlevania NFT auction. But the money doesn’t stop there – as the studio will continue to take a 10% cut on any future NFT resale revenue. Like Avon, but for those answering Elon Musk.

Konami is one of the few companies to stick to its controversial NFT announcement and yet to release a sad JPEG on Twitter, begging the community’s forgiveness. Instead of going the way of Team17, GSC game world and DiscordKonami was persistent. Despite judging by the responses, many wish that hadn’t happened.
