Nifty News: Dan Harmon’s NFT Show Set for Season 3, NFT-friendly Square Enix CEO Steps Down and more…

Fox renewed Dan Harmon’s NFT-affiliated Krapopolis for a third season before season one had aired. The Krapopolis crew tweeted the renewal on March 2, emphasizing that NFT holders may still interact with the program before it airs. Fox’s head of scripted programming, Michael Thorn, told Deadline on March 2 that “We’re so enthusiastic about the content that we want to support and its capacity to find an audience and flourish,” emphasizing his trust in Harmon. “While [a third-season order] is rare, it was a no-brainer for us with Krapopolis,” he continued.

Krapopolis, an animated comedy set in ancient Greece, depicts a “flawed family of humans, gods and monsters that strive to rule one of the world’s earliest towns without murdering one other.”

Big figures including Richard Ayode, Matt Berry, Pam Murphy, Duncan Trussell, and Hannah Waddingham are involved. Fox Corp’s NFT business Blockchain Creative Labs created and supplied the show’s NFT features. The “Krap Chickens” NFTs are cartoon chicken avatars in the show’s style. 10,420 tokens are available for 0.18 Ether (ETH).

Holders get special experiences, material, incentives, and show voting privileges.

After nearly 10 years as Square Enix CEO, NFT-friendly Yosuke Matsuda is retiring.

Takashi Kiryu will succeed Matsuda as CEO, Square Enix said in March. The change won’t be confirmed until May’s annual shareholders meeting. The announcement didn’t mention Web 3 or NFTs, but the corporation said it will continue to integrate new innovation, suggesting its blockchain aspirations may continue.

“Under the fast change of business environment surrounding the entertainment sector, the proposed adjustment is designed to reconfigure the management team with the purpose of implementing ever-evolving technical breakthroughs and capitalizing on the Company’s group’s creativity,” the filing said.

Matsuda often promoted Web3 gaming at Square Enix. In a Jan. 1 New Year’s message, Matsuda noted Square Enix’s “strong investment and commercial growth initiatives” in the field in 2022 and 2023.

“Following the excitement and exhilaration that surrounded NFTs and the metaverse in 2021, 2022 was a year of great volatility in the blockchain-related space,” he wrote. “However, if this proves to have been a step in a process that leads to the creation of rules and a more transparent business environment, it will definitely have been for the good of blockchain entertainment.

Square Enix launched tokenized Final Fantasy character collections in July 2022 and joined with the Oasys blockchain gaming project in September under Mastuda. To create mobile play-to-earn games, the corporation invested $52.7 million in Gumi Games in December.

In March, multi-chain NFT marketplace Magic Eden is offering “free mints” to 13 Web3 games through its “Mint Madness” campaign. Mint Madness launched on March 3, named after the NCAA college basketball tournament “March Madness,” which features 67 games in a month. Polygon has nine blockchain games, Ethereum three, and Solana one. Magic Eden offers a $23,200 20,000 Polygon (MATIC) prize pool.

The top 10 traders of Polygon-based NFTs will get 4,500 MATIC ($5,220).Planet Mojo, Meta Star Strikers, Alaska Gold Rush, Shrapnel, Petobots, Blast Royale, Rogue Nation, Tearing Spaces, Freckle Trivia, Realm Hunter, Legendary: Heroes Unchained, Shrapnel, and Papu Superstars are the games accessible during the promo. Nine-time Emmy Award-winning, Disney-backed Baobab Studios sold out its initial collection of 8,888 NFTs in nine hours after introduction on March 2.

“Momoguro” is a cartoon avatar-themed drop for Immutable X’s future role-playing game.

Breeding, tasks in “Uno Plane,” and NFTs are crucial to the game. CryptoSlam data shows that NFT secondary sales total $8.1 million, with $7.6 million arriving on launch day.
