This new Tarzan is prepared to leave the jungle, don some attire, and appear in a number of Web3 game settings.
A new multi-year licensing deal between digital fashion studio XLABEL and the estate of Tarzan’s original author, Edgar Rice Burroughs, has brought the popular fictional character Tarzan from the African jungle to the Web3.
Disney does not take part. Additionally, this Tarzan is depicted differently than in the past.
More details about Tarzan’s project
On March 28, Australia’s XLABEL and the Ethereum NFT marketplace X2Y2 will launch a 9,999-token Tarzan: Lord of the Apes NFT collection for those on an invite list for 0.05 ETH (approximately $90) per token. On March 30, the remaining tokens will be sold for 0.06 ETH (approximately $110) each.
XLABEL intends to connect its digital Tarzan to blockchain-powered metaverse games and networks developed by third parties. The Ethereum NFT variants of Tarzan will be compatible with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, which powers Fortnite and other popular games.
According to a news release from XLABEL, Tarzan is the first character to be released in novels, plays, films, and the metaverse. Edgar Rice Burroughs’ original “Tarzan of the Apes” magazine series from 1912 cemented the character’s fame. Then came books, early films, radio programs, and more.
XLABEL’s in-house digital artists and the anonymous digital artist Skeeva created the modern Tarzan. Burroughs’ original description of the character, whose British parents were slain off the coast of Africa, leaving Tarzan to be raised by apes, was utilized.
Morris wanted to create a figure that showed where John Clayton II (Tarzan’s real name) came from before his parents, who were British royalty, went on a dangerous trip to Africa. People with NFTs will be able to give him a new life in the metaverse from there.
XLABEL already has its own set of NFTs through GameStop’s shop. The company is not the first to bring a well-known fiction figure to Web3.
