Y'all like Castlevania, right? Do y'all like dogshit NFTs? Well, you're not in luck because Konami, celebrating the 35th anniversary, is literally selling you the bare minimum as NFTs.

Not much more to say here. Just more evidence they really don't care about their properties, and unique to Konami, without the people who made these franchises what they were still at the company, NFTs really might be the best thing they can come up with.

Hello sir and/or madam.

If you took the time to read this, you are probably as bored as I am now.  I hope this complete and utter waste of your time shaved a few seconds off of your boredom.

No refunds if you find reading this signature unsatisfactory to your person.

You can’t get the time back you wasted: you can only reflect and hope to make better life decisions in the future.  Maybe try reading a good book (people still do that, right?) or playing a video game.

Either way, the signature’s over, so find something better to do.

Have a fun day.

Disappointing how they treat the legacy of a franchise they obviously lost the ability to understand long ago. It's a disgrace. That art isn't even theirs.

I've had hard time understanding what NFTs are, because the explanations I have heard are basically describing the selling of nothing. Paying real money for basically nothing in return, without the consent of the artists that originally created the art being sold as an NFT. It sounds more like a scam than anything else...

This is something which did not run too far from what I was thought. The whole things they did just doesn't make any sense at all. When you expect something long lost, they not only diss at you, but always offer you something else, plus far worse. That's Konami.
Never put hopes too high to the pitiful company. Castlevania's future relies on somebody else who do care about the IP's true value and do care about the whole 2D action genre.

What Konami is doing reminds me of those unwanted mystery boxes you see sold at stores. They're just full of crap nobody want's to buy.

That's absolutely what it is. It's a giant scam and waste of time and money, exploiting people with more money than sense, more love of "new tech" than sense, or just no sense at all. Additionally, NFTs are very wasteful of energy, which is terrible for the environment. It's just a travesty for Konami to get involved with this nonsense, I don't know what they're thinking. And I thought they had turned over a new leaf with cool stuff like the Getsu Fuuma remake...seems like they're back to their old trash tricks.

Konami has been watching too much Gary Vee… Next they’ll be going to Garage Sales and tracking down copies of their own physical games and reselling them at inflated prices on VeeBay… It’s bulletproof!!! 8)

Same here. The Getsu remake looked fun, and I've honestly enjoyed the Castlevania collections, but then they get in on this dumbass NFT crap. Just makes them look scummy and lazy.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

Imagine, if you will: A picture on the internet.
And what you are buying, isn't the picture, but a receipt for the picture.

That's the simplest way to explain an NFT. It's literally just a moneymaking scam to part fools from their money.

Which is why it's funny to laugh at all the idiots buying those dumb ape nfts and then hopelessly crying out when someone "steals" it by right clicking and saving. Because you can't do shit. What you bought was not a picture, but a string of code that represents the picture on the blockchain. An overglorified reciept
