Latest Baobab Studios News

Nifty News: Dan Harmon’s NFT show set for season 3, NFT-friendly Square Enix CEO steps down and more…

Mar 4, 2023

Square Enix’s NFT-friendly CEO is stepping down, but it may not impact the firm’s NFT plans, while Disney-backed Baobab Studios' first NFT drop sold out ahead of its upcoming RPG game. 36 Total views Krapopolis, the NFT-affiliated cartoon series from Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon has been renewed for a third season by Fox, despite season one not even airing yet. The Krapopolis team announced the renewal via Twitter in March. 2, and emphasized that NFT holders can still engage with the show before it airs. HOLY KRAP! Citizens we just got BIG news that Krapopolis has been renewed for a *third season*. You don’t need to wait for the show to start, you can start participating now by voting, viewing exclusive content, redeeming rewards and more on ! Speaking to Deadline on March. 2, Michael Thorn, Fox’s president of scripted programming noted that “We’re so bullish about the work that we want to support and its ability to find an audience and succeed,” as he emphasized his faith in Harmon. “While [a third season order] is atypical, it was a no-brainer for us with Krapopolis,” he added. Krapopolis is an animated comedy set in ancient Greece that follows a “flawed family of humans, gods and monsters that try to run one of the world’s first cities without killing each other.” The case includes some big names such as Richard Ayode, Matt Berry, Pam Murphy, Duncan Trussell and Hannah Waddingham. The series is produced by Fox Corp’s NFT firm Blockchain Creative Labs , which also provided the NFT-related elements for the show. The NFTs themselves are called “Krap Chickens” and depict cartoon chicken avatars in the same style of art as the show. There are 10,420 tokens in total, with some still up for mint at 0.18 Ether (ETH). Krap Chickens: Krapopolis Holders are given exclusive access to experiences, content, rewards and voting rights on certain aspects of the show. Square Enix’s CEO steps down Square Enix’s NFT-friendly CEO Yosuke Matsuda is stepping down after nearly 10 years at the helm of the firm behind the Fantasy franchise. In a March notification of company changes, Square Enix outlined that Takashi Kiryu will take over the role of CEO from Matsuda. The move won't officially be finalized until an annual shareholders meeting in May however. While Web 3 and NFTs weren’t referenced explicitly in the notification, the firm did indicate that it is still looking to push on with new tech integrations, suggesting its blockchain-related plans may remain unhindered. “Under the rapid change of business environment surrounding the entertainment industry, the proposed change is intended to reshape the management team with the goal of adopting ever-evolving technological innovations and maximizing on the creativity of the Company’s group,” the filing read. During his time at Square Enix, Matsuda outlined bullish sentiments on Web3 gaming on several occasions. In a New Year’s letter from Jan. 1 in particular, Matsuda emphasized Square Enix had devoted “aggressive investment and business development efforts” towards the space in 2022, and would continue to do so in 2023. “Following the excitement and exhilaration that surrounded NFTs and the metaverse in 2021, 2022 was a year of great volatility in the blockchain-related space,” he mentioned in the note, adding that: “However, if this proves to have been a step in a process that leads to the creation of rules and a more transparent business environment, it will definitely have been for the good of the growth of blockchain entertainment.” Under Mastuda’s leadership, Square Enix rolled out tokenized Final Fantasy character collectibles in July 2022 and partnered with the Oasys blockchain gaming project in September. In December, the firm also invested $52.7 million into mobile game developer Gumi Games, to help develop mobile-based play-to-earn titles.
