Zombie Zoo Keeper, a 9-year old Japanese boy is partnering with Minto, a company that delivers content from manga and anime creators to the world, to create a Zombie Zoo Land experience on its own LAND in The Sandbox metaverse. In addition, the Zombie Zoo experience will be the first NFT-native IP from Japan to have its own LAND sale in The Sandbox.

Zombie Zoo is an NFT pixel art project originally created by Zombie Zoo Keeper. Each piece was hand-drawn on an iPad as a zombified image of people, animals, the alphabet and more. Currently consisting of over 250 pieces, the project was sold on the OpenSea NFT marketplace, where it was discovered by music creators. All the works have sold out while gaining traction on social media, and Zombie Zoo Keeper was the youngest person selected for the “2021 Forbes Japan 100” list.

“Inspiration should have no boundaries of age or accessibility. Just like Zombie Zoo Keeper became an inspiration from Japan to the rest of the world, we’re making The Sandbox the platform to unleash young people’s creativity and innovation to empower their imagination and own their creations,” said Sébastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “Zombie Zoo Land will be true to the spirit of its creator, providing a 3D immersive experience with a fun, colorful zombie flair that brings the original 2D NFTs and art to life.”

More details about the project are coming soon, stay tuned!
