Oasys Going Retro

Gaming in Web3 is getting an extra boost as Oasys, one of the industry’s leading platforms focused on blockchain gaming evolution, announced a collaboration with Edia Corporation. 

The collaboration leverages Edia’s catalog of retro game IPs to create new blockchain-based offerings through Oasys’ existing infrastructure. By introducing a familiar, nostalgic feeling to the available games, the two hope to onboard more mainstream gamers to the Web3 revolution.

Plans include recreating classic games from the 1980s that were originally released across Japan, Europe, and North America. The teams will further enhance these classics by adding interactive experiences between players while still preserving their original appeal, all made possible by Web3 integrations.
