■ First Trailer
Since the latter half of 2021, NFTs have been attracting global attention to make ownership and trading transparent. The advanced uses of NFTs, including in-game assets and Metaverse avatars, have been gaining worldwide attention. The fact that “ULTRAMAN”, which is one of Japan’s leading national IPs and has a fan base in more than 192 countries globally, will take the lead in advancing into the Metaverse NFT game “NFT DUEL” has attracted a great deal of attention from the global market. A large number of partnership offers have been collected for the same.
The NFT cards and other non-fungible tokens to be released under this project will be sold through the NFT marketplace “XANALIA” developed by NOBORDER.z. ULTRAMAN NFTs will also be used as avatars and various other items in the metaverse “XANA”, developed by the company. The details of NFT and how to purchase it will be announced on the official website and Twitter soon.
