Anime Hit ‘Attack on Titan’ Coming to Ethereum Game ‘The Sandbox’

Popular Japanese anime and manga series “Attack on Titan” is set to enter the crypto gaming world through a collaboration with The Sandbox, an Ethereum metaverse game. The collaboration, announced Monday, will create an interactive “Attack on Titan Land” within The Sandbox’s virtual world.

The Sandbox, along with companies Minto and Copro Corporation, received authorization from IP owner Kodansha Ltd. to produce NFTs and develop the themed area. The collaboration aims to bring the post-apocalyptic world of the franchise to life in a new interactive format.

“’Attack on Titan’ is much more than a Japanese manga series set in a post-apocalyptic dark fantasy world,” said The Sandbox co-founder and COO Sebastien Borget, in a release. “It has taken the world by storm, turning into a global anime and movie phenomenon.”

The partnership will include a LAND sale, allowing users to purchase virtual real estate via NFTs in the “Attack on Titan” area of The Sandbox. The themed environment and accompanying experience are set to launch later this year.

With over 100 million copies of the manga in circulation worldwide, “Attack on Titan” has garnered a global fanbase. The series follows Eren Jaeger and his fellow soldiers as they battle giant humanoid creatures known as Titans.

The Sandbox is a Ethereum metaverse game built around digital land and asset ownership, with virtual land holders able to build, share, and monetize their own parts of the world. The game has netted collaborations with a large number of brands and celebrities, including Snoop Dogg, Gucci, Paris Hilton, The Smurfs, and Warner Music Group.
