Sky Mavis and ACT Games Forge Strategic Partnership to Boost Blockchain Gaming
Blockchain gaming company Sky Mavis has made a significant announcement, revealing a strategic partnership with Korean publisher ACT Games. The partnership aims to introduce all of ACT’s gaming titles to the Ronin network, an Ethereum sidechain. The collaboration is set to commence with the migration of ACT Games’ trading card game (TCG), Zoids Wild Arena, to the Ronin network, marking a pivotal step in leveraging blockchain technology for gaming.
ACT Games, renowned for its licensing agreements with popular Japanese intellectual properties such as Aggretsuko and Bubble Bobble, seeks to harness Sky Mavis’ expertise in implementing robust intellectual properties created by seasoned game developers. Their TCG, Zoids Wild Arena, is currently in the beta phase and was initially launched on the Ethereum sidechain Polygon. However, it will now be transitioned to the Ronin network, joining the ranks of successful play-to-earn games like Axie Infinity and the upcoming top-down shooter, The Machines Arena.

The collaboration between Sky Mavis and ACT Games is underpinned by a shared commitment to delivering outstanding game design and a remarkable user experience. Viggo Chung, Business Development Lead at ACT Games, expressed enthusiasm for the partnership, emphasizing the complementary strengths of both entities. ACT Games will focus on crafting captivating game content, while Sky Mavis will provide the essential infrastructure to elevate the gaming experience to new heights.
Upon the successful migration of Zoids Wild Arena to the Ronin network, ACT Games has ambitious plans to transfer its entire gaming portfolio to the blockchain. This portfolio includes their existing games, such as an Aggretsuko puzzle game and the Bubble Bobble-themed Bub’s Puzzle Blast. Furthermore, ACT Games has announced its intention to develop casual games centered around the beloved Hello Kitty and Friends intellectual property, with potential integration of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and crypto elements on the Ronin network.
Sky Mavis, the entity behind the creation of the Ronin blockchain, has been actively seeking collaborations with game studios to expand its burgeoning gaming ecosystem. In a landscape where other blockchain platforms are vying for attention in the gaming sector, Ronin is positioning itself as a dedicated blockchain tailored specifically for gaming. Earlier this year, Ronin solidified its presence in the gaming industry by forging agreements with four game studios and an existing NFT game.
The collaboration between Sky Mavis and ACT Games underscores the growing influence of blockchain technology in revolutionizing the gaming landscape. It heralds an exciting development that harnesses the power of robust intellectual properties and innovative blockchain infrastructure. Gamers can anticipate a seamless and immersive gaming experience on the Ronin network, with an array of both new and established titles set to enrich their gaming journeys.
