Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds players are denouncing a crypto-powered cash shop filled with pay-to-win PvP items

Players of the recently released mobile RPG Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds Do some thinking about the game’s monetization, particularly its ingrained pay-to-earn crypto scheme and how the associated cryptocurrency can be used to pay for incredibly powerful PvP items.

The Reddit post bringing attention to the issue provides a gallery of images from the game’s crypto item shop and highlights a few such items that players can use to literally play pay-to-win in PvP. The post also reports that the cryptocurrency protects other aspects of the game like crafting, trading, and leveling up familiars; The Redditor notes here that earning enough tokens to participate in these activities can be done through gameplay, but there is a grind involved that relegates this aspect of monetization to the realm of pay-for-convenience.

Readers will recall that Netmarble has been stepping on the gas in terms of including crypto in games despite the ban on blockchain games in South Korea, so this news is probably not very surprising, but it is certainly a worrying development.
