ONE Championship and Animoca Brands Introduce ‘ONE Fight Arena’, an Immersive Web3-Enhanced Mobile Game! 

🤝 A strategic alliance has been formed by ONE Championship, Animoca Brands, and Notre Game s.r.o., an Animoca Brands subsidiary, to design ONE Fight Arena. This NFT-based mobile game will showcase ONE's impressive lineup of top-notch martial artists and vast intellectual property collection.

🔜 Notre Game is leading the development of ONE Fight Arena, which will commence player testing in Q4 2023 and launch worldwide in Q1 2024.

Diverging from conventional sports games, ONE Fight Arena will prioritize strategic gameplay over the actual Circle combat. Players will have the opportunity to choose from a diverse range of ONE athletes, including renowned MMA star and ONE Flyweight World Champion, Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, and ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion, Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon, among others. Through a first-person perspective, gamers will be fully immersed in the dynamic world of martial arts and can mold their athlete’s journey from the outset of their career.

🎙 Hua Fung Teh (郑华峰), Co-Founder and Group President of ONE, stated: “We’re thrilled to work with an industry leader in Animoca Brands to launch ONE Fight Arena, our first Web3-enhanced video game. This partnership will give us the opportunity to engage with our global fan base at a deeper level through a unique gaming experience.” 

🗣 Yat Siu, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Animoca Brands, said: “Our partnership with ONE to create ONE Fight Arena will enable the fans of the world’s largest martial arts organization to access a novel gaming experience with true digital ownership at its core. We look forward to assisting ONE to more closely connect with its fans in deep and meaningful ways.” 

🎙 Jiri Mikolas, CEO of Notre Game commented: “We’re thrilled to be a part of this collaboration. The values of Notre Game, like bringing innovative and bold projects with a strong focus on quality, align perfectly with the vision of this partnership. We’re looking forward to working with ONE and Animoca Brands to bring this project to life, reach the hearts of players around the world, and push the boundaries of mobile gaming.” 

By incorporating blockchain technology and NFTs, ONE Fight Arena will grant players the choice of optional Web3 integration. This integration will enable players to gain authentic digital ownership of specific game assets, such as ONE athletes as they appear in the game. 

Players who do not wish to engage in the Web3 layer will still be able to play ONE Fight Arena as a traditional free-to-play mobile game, without true ownership of their ONE digital assets.
