We usually wait for a project to drop before we'd include it in NF3, but the immense attention to detail in the artwork from the forthcoming Soldiers of the Metaverse was enough to nab it a spot on this list. While the mint is still over 24 hours away, the project already boasts over 14k followers on Twitter and almost 9k on Discord.
I personally got excited about this project due to its artwork, which looks like it could be pulled straight from a big budget MCU movie. I was also drawn to this moment from their site: "Unlike other projects that promise the world on day 1, Soldiers Of The Metaverse knows most innovation in this space has yet to come." Really fleshed out roadmaps are enticing, but I found this transparency extremely refreshing. But that doesn't mean they don't have solid plans. Read more here.
The team behind SOTM told us: "The Metaverse is too special to have the same set of action heroes and characters as the old world. This is the perfect time in history to build a new set of iconic characters for what is to come next. We look forward to battling the legends of old with our heroes of new."
And the artist behind the project, Carlos Dattoli, also gave us some insight into his process/involvement with the project:
"I was thrilled to be invited to join the team, because this collection is the first one of its kind, and the idea behind it has endless possibilities to grow. I focused on developing the characters with an eye for the future, as there's never been this style work in generative design. I have no doubt this is the ultimate eye catcher for anyone interested in the Metaverse world!"
The mint will be live here, tomorrow at 8pm ET.
