Astro Boy Teams Up with XANA’s “NFTDUEL” for Third Local Collaboration in Nagano Prefecture

XANA, led by CEO XANARIO, alongside Tezuka Productions Co., Ltd. and J&J Business Creation Co., Ltd., is launching “NFTDUEL” within the AIxWeb3.0 metaverse. This project, focusing on regional revitalization, merges Tezuka Productions’ iconic manga, J&J Business Creation’s regional expertise, and XANA’s NFT technology.

Combining Tezuka Productions’ globally recognized manga and anime content, J&J Business Creation’s proficiency in regional revitalization and local government networks, and XANA’s cutting-edge NFT blockchain technology and metaverse platform, “NFTDUEL” aims to introduce NFTs that are usable in Web 3.0 games to a global audience. The overarching goal is to invigorate local economies and revitalize the domestic tourism sector, which have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Players will have the opportunity to acquire NFTs that encapsulate the charm and cultural diversity of various regions in Japan. These NFTs can be not only owned but also played with and monetized through trading cards.

In the midst of the growing popularity of NFTs and the expanding Metaverse landscape, this initiative represents a paradigm shift, transcending geographical constraints to usher in a new era of lifestyle and business dynamics.

Moreover, this project embodies an unprecedented effort to cultivate new intellectual properties unique to Japan, fostering widespread appreciation and exploration of each region’s distinctiveness both domestically and internationally. Through the collaborative efforts of the three companies, a novel form of local support will be actualized, aiming to reignite demand for the regions while concurrently contributing to their revitalization through targeted tourism promotion efforts.
