In the second quarter of 2022, Animoca Brands plans to launch the first series of NFTs using the Gold Lightan IP.
Tatsunoko Production has granted Animation Brands Corporation Ltd a non-exclusive worldwide license to create a blockchain game and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) based on the classic Japanese TV anime series ‘Gold Lightan The Golden Warrior’.
‘Gold Lightan The Golden Warrior’ is a 52-episode mecha TV anime series produced by Tatsunoko Production and aired from 1981 to 1982 in Japan.
The story is about a robot named Gold Lightan who normally stays in compact size and looks like a cigarette lighter but transforms into a giant 30-metre tall robot when called to fight against evil.
With the help of his assistant robot, Gold Lightan joins forces with a young boy called Hiro and his friends to defend the earth against the alien invasions orchestrated by King Ibaruda.
Animoca Brands expects to launch the first series of ‘Gold Lightan The Golden Warrior’ NFTs by Q2 2022.
