Nissan, one of the world’s largest automakers, is set to launch several car NFTs for a new game called Torque Drift 2.
It’s by Grease Monkey Games, a subsidiary of Australian-based multi-platform video game studio and motorsport specialist Animoca Brands. They say:
“Grease Monkey Games and Nissan will release up to 15 unique Nissan models within the next 12 months, with multiple variations available in Torque Drift 2.
Nissan’s first official NFTs will be five variants of the 180SX model, including the cult favorite Sil80, and seven variants of the 370Z model, including the 50th Anniversary Edition. ”
The NFTs are expected to be released within the next 12 months and the project claims they are the first officially licensed Nissan, Nismo, Infiniti and Datsun NFTs to be available.
The game runs on the Polygon sidechain, which is seeing increasing adoption as one of the oldest layer 2 extensions linked to the Ethereum blockchain.
