Fan Art mixes bored NFT Ape with Persona 5

Persona 5, published by Altus in 2016, is the sixth entry in Persona role-playing game series. Followed by enhanced version in 2019, Persona 5 Royal. This version introduces new content and characters, including the mentor Takuto Maruki, a Confidant and influential in the story. Officially, Altus didn’t come up with any plans to do so Persona series into the NFT era, but a Persona 5 fans have created a playful piece of art that does just this.

The artwork combines Takuto Maruki with an ape in the style of the “Bored Ape Yacht Club” collection by Yuga Labs. Bored Ape’s NFTs have become some of the most recognizable in the world, with the collection recently exceeding $1 billion in sales. Several celebrities own these NFTs, from Jimmy Fallon to Post Malone. At the time of writing, Bored Ape NFTs are on sale for between $3,000 and $2.5 million.

PKMany64 posted their artwork to the humor community /r/OkBuddyPersona/Reddit. The ape has an expression that looks like it’s somewhere between fatigue and irritation, and is adorned with Maruki’s hair, glasses, and clothes. Many readers responded that they would screenshot and save the images, poking fun at NFTs like the Bored Ape Yacht Collection that are under increasing scrutiny, with some questioning the value, purpose and their security.

NFT remains a hot topic in 2022, as is the practice of integrating blockchain transactions into games, especially in the form of virtual assets and goods. Game designer Peter Molyneux, best known for developing titles like Black and white and Fables , recently made waves for his latest project Heritage, an enhanced unreleased game $40 million in virtual asset sales. Ubisoft is also betting on the promise of the blockchain ecosystem, having recently integrated their Quartz NFT system into Ghost scout.

However, efforts to integrate NFT into the gaming experience have been controversial in certain cases and, arguably, gamers have not embraced it as the companies expected. For example, quartz has been met with a warm response. GSC Game World also recently abandoned plans to integrate NFT for their upcoming game EXPERT 2, after the negative reaction from fans. This week, even Sega reassured the public that it will not pursue NFT content in the name of “simple monetization”. Perhaps it is not surprising that these Persona 5 fans are not alone in mocking their NFT scene.

NFTs are useful for proving ownership of digital, intangible goods, and they will likely be part of our digital future. Maybe by then, there will be more than just paintings of apes selling for thousands of dollars each. For now, anyone who can’t discern that premium can at least do with PKMany64’s irreverent artwork.
