Additionally, the game is also reported to feature non-fungible tokens or NFTs. Keep reading to know more about Louis: The Game.
Louis; The Game will be a first-person explorer type of game, with the storyline filled with quests. The main character in the game is Vivienne, who also happens to be the French luxury brand's mascot. From what it looks like, the wooden doll will set out on a journey in the game to explore the brand's history. Louis Vuitton had previously developed a game called Endless Runner, which was launched in 2019 on the company's website to showcase Virgil Abloh's FW2019 runaway collection. In the game, players had to collect Louis Vuitton-themed tokens while running over obstacles.
As reported by an Australian publisher Kurier, the brand mascot Vivienne will be leading the quests in the game. As the wooden doll will make progress in the game, each objective or quest will reveal a tad about the brand's 167-year-old history. Additionally, users will be able to pick collectible items in the form of NFTs. The report also adds that gameplay will be generic, with a focus on visuals. However, the availability of the game is not confirmed to be selected or global. The game is reported to launch on August 4, for both Android and iOS devices. The NFT embedded game is being launched on the 200th birthday of the founder of the brand, Louis Vuitton himself. The fashion brand also has a planned documentary which will be aired via Apple TV and will be called Looking for Louis.
