Shiba Inu Game Launch Date Details
Shiba Inu developer Shytoshi Kusama said on Twitter that he had been playing the Shiba Eternity game for “a while” and is enjoying it.
When is Shiba Eternity coming out? The play to earn game was released in Australia on Sep. 19, 2022. Shortly after, the SHIB team hosted a Twitter Spaces event on Sep. 22, 2022, to update the community about a worldwide launch slated for Oct. 6, 2022.
How to Play Shiba Eternity
Upon initial launch, gamers will be guided by a “Sensei,” translated as “teacher,” named Ryoshi, who guides them through an initial quest. This quest will allow them to become familiar with the mechanics of gameplay.
Here is an unofficial Shiba Eternity gameplay video:
According to the Sensei, Shiboshis were created to allow Shibs to fight without violence.
Each Shiboshi will have the opportunity to come into contact with “PURE FOMO” to unlock particular abilities. Each PURE FOMO transformation will result in a unique outcome. Shiboshis also have dormant traits that need to be awakened to unleash a set of powers.
Shiboshis will be able to train in different martial arts disciplines, such as “Chewjitsu,” which give them access to cards with different playing abilities and styles.
When the player gains enough experience, they will face the sensei in battle. According to Kusama, 5% of all profit from playing the game will be burned.
Shiba Inu Play to Earn Game? No Tokenomics Yet
It is unclear whether the Shiba Eternity play to earn game will follow the mold of Axie Infinity. There has been no official documentation at press time, leading some on crypto Twitter to believe that Shiba Eternity game is just a marketing stunt.
Others opine that the game is a marketing stunt to draw attention away from the promised launch of the layer-2 solution, Shibarium. Shibarium will offer, amongst other things, lower gas fees than Ethereum, the blockchain on which the SHIB token currently lives.
A SHIB metaverse is also in the works.
SHIB, the community’s native token, is the world’s second-largest memecoin by market cap. SHIB is up 1.7% to $0.00001120 in the last 24 hours, according to Coingecko.
