It seems that the biggest crypto gaming guild, Yield Guild Games, has decided to start 2022 with a bang. Though it’s only the first month of the year, the company has already partnered with one of the largest crypto exchanges, and has acquired characters, land, wearables, and other gaming NFTs from 5 games: ‘Big Time,’ ‘Fancy Birds,’ ‘MonkeyBall,’ ‘Heroes of Mavia,’ and ‘Nyan Heroes.’ The final entry, ‘Nyan Heroes‘ was announced only recently.
Head of partnerships at YGG, Sarutobi Sasuke, had the following to say about their latest partnership:
“Nyan Heroes is on the frontier of building an AAA blockchain game on Solana, offering a variety of engaging game modes for our scholars to participate in and test their skills in a guild setting.”
The benefits for YYG players include early rights to land sales, land presales, and free entry to the early access and beta tests of the game.
As for the game itself, Nyan Heroes is a third-person action-adventure shooter with cute kitties fighting in robust mecha robots, and is based on the Solana blockchain. Although we haven’t seen any gameplay demos so far, the developers have promised us AAA level graphics and gameplay mechanics. As the dev team consists of programmers formerly from Riot Games, EA, Ubisoft, and Respawn, there is great hope and anticipation for what seems to be a promising new game in the play-to-earn field.
Proudly introducing our new expanded team! With decades of experience in AAA studios like Riot Games, EA, Ubisoft and Respawn, our team is ready to take NH to new heights in 2022!
This is only just the beginning, you are here early.
