With its new Ghost in the Shell Ukiyo-e NFT collection, MADworld is bringing back the 1995 classic animated cyberpunk thriller “Ghost in the Shell” to life. The collection contains a limited-edition Ukiyo-e print in addition to 500 digital drops that reflect recognizable movie themes.
The animated movie Ghost in the Shell is based on Shirow Masamune’s cyberpunk manga. In the extremely advanced network society of the future 2029 AD, Public Security Section 9 and its members of the cyborg task force fight against computer crimes and cyberterrorism. With the famous symbol now dominating the digital world, collectors will have the opportunity to join the task force.
Sets of the Ghost in the Shell and Ukiyo-e NFT line will be offered for purchase. This will cost about $1149 USD for each set. Users will initially get an NFT after making a purchase, then the Ukiyo-e prints. The NFT obtained will grant exclusive access to the future Ghost in the Shell game and metaverse, which is important to highlight.
