"Final Fantasy" Developer Square Enix Chooses Arbitrum for Next NFTs

Square Enix, renowned for its Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest game series, is now using the Arbitrum network for its blockchain game, Symbiogenesis.

The developer revealed that the next batch of 1,500 NFT characters for Symbiogenesis will be minted on Arbitrum, an Ethereum Layer-2 scaling solution, starting May 31. These characters will be released in small batches through a three-day public auction.

Previously, Symbiogenesis character NFTs were minted on the Ethereum mainnet, with other assets on Polygon, another Ethereum scaling solution. Square Enix has not confirmed if it will continue using Polygon or shift entirely to Arbitrum for all future assets.

For Chapter 2, we've adopted Arbitrum, reducing the gas fees to about 1/1000 of the previous cost (around 1.3 yen per bid).

To assist participants, Square Enix has provided a guide on how to bridge assets to Arbitrum One.

Symbiogenesis is a narrative adventure game that integrates character and in-game item NFTs, with exclusive areas and experiences accessible only to character NFT owners. The game plans to release a total of 10,000 unique characters.

By reducing transaction costs and enhancing user experience, Square Enix demonstrates its commitment to leading innovation in the blockchain gaming industry.
