Legendary Japanese gaming company Konami is looking to recruit NFT and Metaverse staff. The gaming goliath aims to provide users with new web3 and metaverse experiences with its expansion into NFTs. One of its goals is said to be a Konami NFT marketplace. Despite growing gamer indifference to web3 technology, Konami is all set to change the game! So, how does Konami hope to make a change in the web3 gaming industry? Read on to find out.
What Positions Are Konami Hiring For In Web3?
According to a press release on Thursday, Konami stated that they plan to bring on a wide range of talent for their metaverse plans. Although the recruitment campaign currently focuses on “system construction” and “service development” plans, we can guess that further roles will pop up soon. “We have been conducting research and development to incorporate the latest technology into games and contents, and plan to launch a service where players can trade their in-game NFTs (digital items) through a unique distribution platform using blockchain.” – the company stated.
Konami plans to expand its team in Japan to evolve alongside the future of digital entertainment. The open positions they’re hiring for include System Engineers, Programmers, Designers, Product Managers, and Intellectual Property Law, among various other legal, product, and finance positions. However, this isn’t Konami’s first time in the realm of NFTs. In January, they released a Castlevania-themed NFT collection to celebrate the iconic game’s anniversary. The NFTs were hugely successful, garnering more than $160,000 in revenue.
The company plans to develop a “unique digital item distribution platform” in line with the guidelines set by the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association, Japan Online Game Association, and the Mobile Content Forum. Please note that the open positions for their metaverse are only available for their Japan-based locations at the moment. Although, there may be plans to expand the opportunities to other areas in the future.
Konami is a renowned Japanese gaming company that develops, distributes, and publishes games. Some iconic titles under its belt are games like the Metal Gear series, Castlevania, Pro Evolution Soccer, Silent Hill, and more.
Konami has always been an ahead-of-its-time company, and despite pushback from fans, they have continued to build with the times. Their move into the NFT gaming world could probably signal an era of web3 gaming that adapts to gamer needs.
