Nextage Co., Ltd.
Nextage Co., Ltd. joined Astar Japan Lab for the purpose of supporting the introduction of web3 and supporting organizations in the arts and culture industry, including theater, and started creating business cases using blockchain in Japan.
The online theater video distribution service “Kangeki Zanmai” introduces a new function that allows you to enjoy theater in a meta-based space, and supports introduction support and corporate transactions using Astar / Shiden Network.
Nextage Co., Ltd. (Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture / Representative Director: Manabu Fukui) is pleased to announce that it has joined Astar Japan Lab, which aims to maximize business opportunities in Japan for Astar / Shiden Network.
Nextage Co., Ltd., which operates the online theatrical video distribution service “Theater Zanmai”, has developed theater-related services such as a theater video subscription service, live theater distribution, and theater performance ticketing service.
In the future, starting with joining Astar Japan Lab, we will develop new services that incorporate Web3 and Metaverse technologies, and propose a new form of online theater experience.
The online theater service “Theater Sanmai” was born from the desire to deliver theater to customers who live far away or who find it difficult to visit the theater due to family circumstances or physical reasons.
Also, due to the epidemic of the new coronavirus infection, we would like customers who have become difficult to visit the theater due to anxiety about infectious diseases to enjoy it in the same way as watching a play at the theater. We have also started a service of “Kangeki Zanmai LIVE” that delivers live performances.
Due to the corona crisis, the number of opportunities for live streaming of theater has increased, and the form of online theater viewing is spreading.
Therefore, Nextage Co., Ltd. incorporates Web3 and Metaverse technologies into its online theater service and proposes new ways to enjoy theater.
New function “Party Mode”
In “Kangeki Zanmai”, we are planning to introduce a new function of [Party Mode] that allows you to watch theatrical works at the same time in the theater on the Metaverse.
With this feature, you can enjoy the theater at the same time as your fans who are far away.
In addition, you can share your impressions in real time while watching the work, and the unique appeal of online theater viewing will be born, as you can communicate with each other while watching the play.
Even beginners who have never been to a theater can enjoy the theater experience from the comfort of their own home.
The purpose of this function is to increase the number of ways to enjoy online theater, to make you love theater even more, and to make people who have never touched theater interested before. And we aim to create such an opportunity that makes you want to visit the theater.
