What did Matsuda say about blockchain games? The CEO explained that the games that use blockchain tokens can stimulate the users’ interest as well as a reward for creating content in them. In addition, Matsuda hopes that the concept of metaverses will have a significant impact on Square Enix's approach to games creation.

How does Square Enix treat NFT? Matsuda noted that NFTs have increased the liquidity of digital goods, but remarked that token trading is “somewhat speculative.” Matsuda suggests that as NFTs spread, their prices will adjust. Square Enix previously created a series of NFTs for its Million Arthur franchise, but they were not integrated directly into the game.
