Square Enix’s Quirky NFT Characters

Square Enix, renowned for its Final Fantasy franchise, takes a bold step into the NFT world with Symbiogenesis, its blockchain game project.

The debut of Ethereum NFT heroes raises eyebrows, not only for their unique digital traits but also for their distinctive names. Characters like “Condiment” and “Photo” are making waves, with gamers shelling out substantial sums for these unconventional digital personas.

In this peculiar realm, an NFT character named “Egg” fetched over $1,200 worth of ETH, while another digital hero, “Starvation,” commanded a price tag exceeding $500.

Despite their names, these characters defy expectations, resembling neither eggs nor symbols of hunger.

The names, reminiscent of an AI name generator or cryptographic seed phrases, add an element of mystery to the virtual personas.

Square Enix breaks away from its traditional fantasy-inspired names, opting for real words like “Condiment,” “Test,” “Photo,” and “Hobby” for all 500 Symbiogenesis Chapter 1 character NFTs.

Symbiogenesis, announced in late 2022, is set for a full launch on December 21. This free-to-play, browser-based story game introduces a questing system allowing players to unlock subsequent game chapters.

However, players seeking a coveted spot in the limited final game quest, determining the story’s ultimate outcome, must possess an NFT hero.

As the gaming community eagerly anticipates the fate of Symbiogenesis, the hero holding the reins may well be “Egg” or the multi-faceted “Affair,” sporting both a baseball cap and chestplate armor.

Alternatively, the destiny-shaping figure could be the spiky-haired enigma, “Excuse.” The cryptic journey into Symbiogenesis, marked by unconventional NFT names, adds a layer of intrigue to the unfolding digital narrative.
