Axie Infinity, a non-fungible token-based online video game developed by Sky Mavis, is now on Apple’s App Store. The game is now on the app marketplace of the iPhone maker but available only in select markets at this time.
The “Axie Infinity: Origins” card-based NFT strategy game was already launched on the Google Play Store in December of last year, and Apple’s App users will be able to access them now as well. People in Asia and Latin America will have the opportunity to download the game via Apple’s marketplace as the game continues to push with its global expansion.
According to CoinDesk, the “Axie Infinity: Origins” game title will be on the App Store in Malaysia, Indonesia, Venezuela, Peru, Vietnam, Mexico, Colombia, and Argentina. It was suggested that it would eventually arrive in other regions later on.
The game was already installed by at least 1.5 million users across all platforms, and Sky Mavis has a goal of increasing this number by bringing it to other regions through partnerships. The company will continue with its expansion using Google and Apple’s app marketplace platforms since this is one of the easiest ways to reach customers.
“Sky Mavis remains committed to our vision of a player-owner digital nation and is excited to work with app stores to open our ecosystem to a new generation of Lunacians,” Trung Nguyen, the Axie Infinity game developer Sky Mavis’ chief executive officer, said in a statement.
It was revealed that the company is also rolling out its Mavis Market, which is a curated NFT marketplace that will be powered by its own Ronin blockchain. There are plans to add a merchandise store for digital collectibles as well. Meanwhile, CryptoSlate reported that Axie Infinity’s share price shot up by 12% after the launch of the game on Apple’s App Store.
