Last week, Konami held its first NFT auction. To mark Castlevania’s 35th anniversary, the Japanese video game company dropped the ‘Konami Memoria NFT Collection’, containing 14 Castlevania images and videos.
This auction was held between January 12th and January 14th, and the results are out.
All 14 items were sold, with the average price being about $12,000. From the collection, the most expensive piece was an artwork based on Dracula’s Castle map from the first installment of the franchise. It sold for $26,538.96.
A video comprising of different Castlevania games sold for $17,518, and a piece from Circle of the Moon sold for $17,000.
The video game company also stands a chance to make more money over time, should the pieces get sold in future by their new owners. They will receive a 10% royalty for each time the NFTs are sold.
While this is Konami’s first NFT project, they have hinted that it is only the first of many, and they even have a dedicated website for this.
