Axie Infinity developer Sky Mavis announced today that it’s partnering with Japanese games company GMonsters to launch new Fight League games on the Ronin blockchain network. The two companies are supported in this endeavor by Japanese publishing company Mixi, which will provide planning and production during the development of the new games.
GMonsters plans to launch three Fight League games on Ronin, with arcade survival title Fight League Survivor being the first. Survivor will have weekly challenges with prizes for winners, and its closed beta test launches in the next few weeks.
Sky Mavis CEO Trung Nguyen said in a statement, “In partnering with GMonsters we’re uniting with pioneers who share our passion for innovative gaming. MIXI’s established presence in Japan and GMonsters’ demonstrated expertise in IP and interactive entertainment, as seen in their successful titles like Pokémon Medallion and collaborations with major industry players, plays a pivotal role in Ronin’s long-term strategy. This partnership strengthens Ronin’s global appeal by blending anime-style gaming experiences with immersive web3 gaming elements, catering to our diverse community.”
GMonsters CEO Jia Shen added, “What excites us most about the Ronin and Axie Infinity ecosystems is the expansive community of passionate gamers, the robust marketing support across various channels to reach more gamers, and the presence of a professional team with an international background, akin to ours. We are thrilled for Fight League to have a home on Ronin and are looking forward to bringing our IP and entertainment expertise to the masses.”
