SEOUL -- WeMade, a South Korean game developer, is set to release the international version of its popular mobile massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) "Night Crows," targeting the global market. The original version of the game was launched in South Korea in April 2023.

Upon its initial release, Night Crows quickly climbed the ranks to become one of the top 10 popular games on both Google and Apple app stores. By May, it had claimed the number one spot in both app markets. The game received the prestigious "Best Game" award at the Korea Game Awards in 2023.

WeMade announced that the global version of Night Crows will be available in 170 countries and support nine languages starting March 12. This international release will introduce WeMix 3.0, the company's blockchain network designed to store user data, including unique in-game items such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that can be traded both within and outside the game platform.

A blockchain network functions as an interconnected system of virtual ledgers, ensuring that any changes made to one ledger are replicated across all connected ledgers, thus enhancing security and preventing unauthorized modifications.

NFTs, on the other hand, are digital tokens containing unique data, often used to authenticate real-world items or online assets. In the case of Night Crows, NFTs will represent unique in-game items and their values, safeguarding against hacking and data manipulation.

The global version of Night Crow will introduce six tokens within its game system, with their values increasing as players achieve new milestones in the MMORPG. These tokens can be traded on WeMix's PNIX DEX, a cryptocurrency trading platform.

"We have witnessed a steady increase in blockchain sales since the second half of 2023, and Night Crow is expected to further accelerate this growth," stated WeMade CEO Jang Hyun-kuk.
