Tsuburaya Addresses Unauthorised Ultraman NFT Project

Following public controversy, Tsuburaya has released a statement denouncing Elevated Games and their Ultraman project, Kaiju Kombat.


Following public controversy, Tsuburaya has released a statement denouncing Elevated Games and their Ultraman project, Kaiju Kombat. This announcement follows Elevated Games committing various contract violations, and drawing criticism for their actions on social media. Tsuburaya stated:

Due to repeated contract violations, Tsuburaya Productions would like to inform that all NFT related projects made by Elevated Games Inc., under the Ultraman license are not supported officially and should not be considered licensed product.

Elevated Games

Elevated Games is an American video game and technology company. They have previously created Ultraman-themed products such as a limited run Ultraman Watch and Ultramoji, a mobile app emoji collection. They are also the company behind Kaiju Kombat, an early access AR mobile game. Players must purchase an NFT to get access to the game. The game is an augmented reality fighting game where players fight using models of characters from various Ultraman shows.

Kaiju Kombat drew controversy on social media as a primarily NFT based project. An NFT (Non-fungible token) is a system used for digital products which verifies owners of a digital item. It has been criticised for its disproportionate environmental impact, and regular use in scams. Elevated Games were also criticised for their threatening responses to comments.

Following Tsuburaya’s announcement, Elevated Games has taken down their website.
