DeAPlaneta Entertainment has announced the acquisition of “MetaGuardians,” the collection of Metaverse superheroes, its brand development plans and a calendar of upcoming projects. This ever-expanding universe of superheroes, villains, sidekicks and henchmen first came to life as an NFT collection created by brothers, Antubel and Bernal Moreda, in 2021. Antubel Moreda is the designer of games such as “Plants vs. Zombies,” “Bejeweled” and “Zombie Gunship Survival.”
With the acquisition, DeAPlaneta Entertainment aims to consolidate the brand’s position in English-speaking markets and expand the “MetaGuardians” universe and characters into a global entertainment brand. The DeAPlaneta Interactive team has developed a “MetaGuardians” story around the project, which will involve the Web3 community and current Discord users.
This universe will be made available in a range of formats and media. The first “MetaGuardians” launch following their incorporation into the DeAPlaneta Entertainment family will be the publication of an exclusive six-edition NFT comic book collection. The comic story revolves around friends who meet up in the metaverse for exciting daily adventures. Here, supported by the MetaGuardian heroes, they must combat villains who see humans as a threat to ensure everyone can live in harmony.
In parallel, DeAPlaneta Interactive is also working on a series of short films for release on a range of digital platforms and Discord. Several deals and alliances with strategic partners are in the pipeline and will lead to the creation of physical and digital licensed Web3 products.
“One of our goals is to make ‘MetaGuardians’ a global brand,” says Anna Campistol Agustí, head, digital, DeAPlaneta Entertainment. “As a result, DeAPlaneta Entertainment will rely on the support of the international NFT community to build a successful project for the medium and long term. Planned ‘MetaGuardians’ projects include major benefits for this community that will be key to the brand’s growth and expansion.”
“DeAPlaneta has always been the perfect ‘MetaGuardians’ partner, thanks to their audiovisual content and licensing experience,” say Antubel and Bernal Moreda, creators, “MetaGuardians.” “We’re really excited to continue working on the brand following its acquisition and to seeing how our project flourishes in the best possible hands. We will continue our involvement to witness the extraordinary future they will create.”
