Square Enix has announced the release of a new NFT collection linked to the popular role-playing video game Final Fantasy VII, in honor of its 25th anniversary. The collection, called The Final Fantasy VII Anniversary Art Museum Digital Card Plus, includes 200 unique artworks that can be collected both physically and digitally.
Each physical box of the collection contains 20 packs of trading cards, with each pack including six randomly selected physical cards from a pool of 207 distinct designs. In addition, every pack comes with an exchange ticket that can be redeemed for a digital card or NFT of the buyer’s choosing.
To facilitate the digital collection process, Square Enix has partnered with Enjin, a blockchain network that specializes in gaming and NFTs. Customers who purchase a physical pack receive an exchange ticket that can be redeemed for an NFT of their choice. Fans can choose from 207 unique designs and simply need to download the Enjin wallet app, create an account on the Enjin NFT platform, and redeem the exchange ticket to obtain their preferred digital card.
Square Enix, a game development platform that has produced popular titles such as Dragon Quest, Kingdom Hearts, and Final Fantasy, has recently shifted its focus to NFTs as part of its Web3 strategy to engage with fans more deeply. Last month, the company partnered with Polygon to launch a gamified art collecting experience called Symbiogenesis, which will offer collectors a unique storyline-based digital collectible art experience when it goes on sale this spring.
