Final Fantasy NFTs will be released by Square Enix in collaboration with the NFT ecosystem Enjin. A digital collection of cards commemorating Final Fantasy 7’s 25th anniversary will be launched on the cross-chain network Efinity and will be available to anyone who purchase goods from the physical collection, which is set to premiere in 2023.
Pre-orders for an action figure are now open, with the deluxe edition including a voucher to redeem an NFT version of the figurine.
Physical trading card pre-orders will be available later this year.
Enjin describes itself as a “place for eco-conscious blockchain [users],” “provides environmentally-friendly options for constructing decentralised gaming goods,” and “dedicated to carbon-neutral NFTs” (by 2030).

“This collaboration heralds a new era for digital assets and entertainment; Square Enix, a respected developer with legendary intellectual property, is pioneering the way for the industry,” said Enjin executive Witek Radomski.
“Efinity allows fans to connect with interactive NFTs without even realising they’re on the blockchain. Enjin, by combining curiosity and innovation, may usher in the next phase of growth in blockchain entertainment.”
The figurine’s Digital Plus Edition is currently available for pre-order on the Square Enix shop for $159.99. This edition comes with “exchange vouchers redeemable for a digital certificate of authenticity and a digital version of the figure that can be enjoyed on PC or Smart Phone.”

The store page also has a lengthy “Caution before Purchasing” section, almost as though Square Enix is issuing a warning about the limits when redeeming the code.
“If the Enjin services become unavailable in the future, you may lose access to the NFT digital certificate of authenticity and digital version of the figure,” it says explicitly.
The NFT collection follows Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda’s talk at the beginning of the year, in which he expressed hope that NFTs and blockchain technology will become a “significant trend” in gaming.
He expressed interest in the technology again in April, however he stated last month that it was “too early” to create Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy blockchain games.
Last month, Square Enix celebrated its 25th anniversary by announcing the release of Final Fantasy 7 Remake on Steam, a sneak peek at Rebirth aka Remake Part Two, and a remake of the PSP classic Crisis Core.
