Everyone’s favourite publisher Konami is pushing forward with its plans to increase projects surrounding NFTs, blockchain and Metaverse. The company is now hiring for “system construction” and “service development” on new experiences related to Metaverse and Web 3.0, though stopped short of providing any more information beyond the usual NFT trading opportunities.
In a recent post on its official website, Konami announced that it’s doubling down on blockchain plans by developing new experiences on Web 3.0 and Metaverse. New recruits are being brought in to work on these projects, with available positions including system engineer, programmer, project manager, business development, producer and many more roles.

Konami’s full statement on delivering new Metaverse and blockchain experiences reads:
“Konami Digital Entertainment announces that we will be recruiting a wide range of talent for “system construction” and “service development” to provide new experiences such as WEB3 and Metaverse. We have been conducting research and development to incorporate the latest technology into games and contents, and plan to launch a service where players can trade their in-game NFTs (digital items) through a unique distribution platform using blockchain. To further strengthen our structure and accelerate our business, we are looking for the following positions as members who will work together to expand our business to evolve with a new future for digital entertainment.”
In related news, Konami already dipped its feet into the non-fungible pool when it celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Castlevania series back in January with (you guessed it) NFTs. As it stands, Ubisoft has gone quiet since announcing its own NFT plans. Square Enix continues to confidently push ahead with its own NFT implementations, though it’s good to know that Minecraft developer Mojang denounced them.
Konami is reportedly set to revive the Silent Hill franchise as well through multiple new projects currently rumoured to be in development.
