■Release of the First SOUL Fusers White Paper
We are pleased to announce the release of the first white paper for SOUL Fusers, a Web3 game where players can obtain monsters called “SOULs” from another world and battle them against each other. Each SOUL has a core, and when they enter battle, their cores will connect and influence each other. Players can join the game with various SOULs and earn DEAPcoin (DEP) depending on the outcome.

DEA plans to gradually release more information leading up to the game launch. In this first white paper, the core game elements are introduced, such as the way SOULs do battle and their various attributes, as well as the NFTs that can be used in the game.

■About the SOUL Fusers Web3 User IP Co-Creation Project
SOUL Fusers is running a “Web3 User-Producer IP Co-Creation Project”. This project focuses on creating new IPs in collaboration with user communities. SOUL Fusers has already started a community on Discord, where users can submit original monsters and decide on their names. More projects are planned in the future.

DEA plans to reward users who contribute to IP creation and game development—such as those who submit original monsters—with DEP royalties. The company will also explore further ways to integrate tokenomics in user collaboration projects.

In order to expand IP deployment, DEA is additionally launching a “SOUL Friends” project to collaborate with organizations that contribute to solving social issues, and a “SOUL Mates” project to collaborate with makers to create content other than games. Both projects will enable user participation and are considering schemes that allow users to earn DEP rewards and share in revenue. Details of these projects will be announced in a press release soon.


■Comment from PlayMining CGO (Chief Game Officer) & SOUL Fusers Producer (Development Manager) Satoshi Araragi:
SOUL Fusers is aiming to create and develop IPs in a way that has never been done before: as a ‘Web3 User-Producer IP Co-Creation Project’. We have already involved users in various ways, and as the first step, the release date for the game is approaching soon. We will continue to provide information through white papers and various communities as we get closer to launching.

We are also pleased to announce the SOUL Fusers comic adaptation today. With the cooperation of KADOKAWA Game Linkage, the fantastic world’s setting and story will be created by Mr. Toshihisa Kio and Mr. Ichiro Sakaki.

We are in the middle of designing a variety of further developments, to ensure that both those who have already participated in the project and those who are interested for the first time can enjoy it!
