Onigiri MMORPG set to return to PC in 2023 with NFT companions

Onigiri MMORPG set to return to PC in 2023 with NFT companions

The English language version of Onigiri, Cyberstep’s long-running MMORPG, shut down just about a year ago last June. Since then the mobile, console, and Steam releases have continued to operate as normal along with the dedicated Japanese and Taiwanese PC clients. But things are set to change on the PC side over the next year as Cyberstep has teamed up with Catheon Gaming to release Onigiri Metaverse.

Currently scheduled for a beta release in the second quarter of 2023, Metaverse aims to bring Onigiri’s original PC content back to players with some blockchain-powered changes. The original game incorporated numerous types of in-game partners bolstered by an affection system. At the outset, Metaverse will take four of these companions and alter them with combinations of unique clothing, hair, and other accessories of increasing rarity that — you guessed it — players will own as unique NFTs.

For better or worse this will bring what sounds like the majority of Onigiri’s original content back to English PC players. If successful, Metaverse will also replace the current Japanese and Taiwanese PC versions, although there is a long road of development and public acceptance of blockchain ahead for the teams. For the purposes of our site though, the original English PC version as well as the Vita and Xbox One releases will continue to be considered delisted.
