Yu Suzuki wants to sell you Virtua Fighter JPEGs because NFTs refuse to die

Yu Suzuki, the legendary ex-Sega game designer who has yet to be apprehended for his role in creating the Shenmue series, has gotten a new gig. VGC (opens in new tab) reports that Suzuki has partnered up with Oasyx, “an NFT project developed on the Oasys gaming blockchain,” to produce a series of covetable JPEGs based around the Virtua Fighter series, which he created.

The partnership means that “fans can acquire limited-edition ‘VF MAYU’ NFTs” of “special Virtua Fighter characters,” which will be, uh, “incubated and revealed” next month. That faintly gross-sounding process will produce 1,000 Virtua Fighter NFTs—featuring “11 characters from the first three Virtua Fighter games”—for someone, somewhere to spend too much money on. They’ll also “serve as a base for future Metaverse avatars,” because of course they will.
