Shiba Inu recently unveiled Shiba Inu Games, the latest arm of the project which is meant to propel adoption in the game industry. Shiba Inu has been expanding its footprint across various industries and gaming is the latest on that list. It announced that it planned to release a multi-platform game where holders will be able to play each other.
To make this a reality, the project had gone in search of an AAA game studio that would help bring this vision to light. The search has been hard and fraught with disappointments but the meme coin has found its perfect partner in PlaySide Studios.
Shiba Inu Developing First Game
Shiba Inu had previously revealed that it planned to build a 7-figure game and Shiba Inu Games had been established as the arm to carry the flag on this mission. In an announcement posted to Twitter, the team confirmed that it had partnered with Australian game studio PlaySide. Shiba Inu states that it entered into an eight-month milestone-based agreement with the developer to create its game.
