Oasys Signs Exclusive Partnership with Retro Game IP Holder Edia

Gaming blockchain Oasys has entered into an exclusive partnership with Edia Corporation, a holder of 139 retro game intellectual property (IP). Oasys will onboard a new user base to Web3 gaming by becoming the exclusive distributor for all 139 retro game IP titles Edia owns in the Web3 and global markets.

The partnership with Edia will work towards onboarding more mainstream gamers to web3 by using retro game IP to create new games on blockchain, including Oasys infrastructure. All 139 retro game IPs held by Edia will be available for Oasys to explore with the aim of recreating them for web3.

In cooperation with Oasys, Edia will also oversee public relations and marketing activities using its retro gaming IPs and blockchain technology. This will raise awareness of the opportunities available within web3 for combining classic characters and titles with blockchain technology.

The partnership between Oasys and Edia will open the doorway to many retro games and iconic characters from the 80s and 90s to a whole new generation of gamers. Edia holds the IP for popular titles like Gaiares, a horizontal-scrolling shooter originally released in 1990. First issued as a cartridge game on Genesis, Gaiares can be recreated as a blockchain game.

Edia also holds the IPs to a number of classic 80s games released in Japan, Europe, and North America. Initially gathering a cult following, these classic fantasy and fighting games will be re-released in collaboration with Oasys. They will retain their original appeal and gameplay while improving the gaming experience and making it more interactive to appeal to web3 gamers.
