Basically, “The Voice Coach Battle” allows fans from all over the world to act as a celebrity coach, to sit on the iconic red chair of the show, and press the big red button and guide talents towards stardom in a game adapted to Web3. 

Not only, fans will be able to play with the 25th season of NBC’s “The Voice”, now airing, from within the gaming experience.

And indeed, players will receive an exclusive limited NFT every week in which they manage to correctly predict which NBC contestants will advance and ultimately win.

Furthermore, by completing the “The Voice Coach Battle”, players have the opportunity to win tickets to attend the recordings of the TV show “The Voice” in the United States (NBC), or in France, or in Germany (SAT.1), or in Australia, or in the United Kingdom (ITV).

The Voice Coach Battle: the TV game becomes Web3 in the Sandbox metaverse

The new Web3 game “The Voice Coach Battle” on the Sandbox metaverse, offers players the opportunity to become real coaches of the celebrities of ‘The Voice’.

And indeed, it starts with a blind audition and, as the contestants perform, the player will choose their artist by pressing the iconic red button. This is where the Web3 game inspired by the television show begins. 

Regarding the partnership, Arthur Madrid, CEO and co-founder of The Sandbox, stated: 

“The Sandbox is a center for creativity, discovery, and self-expression, making it naturally the perfect place for “The Voice”. We are excited to collaborate with them and bring the energy of the show into the digital realm. We can’t wait to see players truly shine when they take on the roles of their favorite coaches”.

Jurian van der Meer, EVP Brand Licensing, Global Partnerships, ITV Studios stated:

“Following the fact that ‘The Voice’ has been named Franchise of the Year in K7 Media’s ‘Tracking the Giants 2023’ report, in addition to the recognition for having the most active versions in 2023, our collaboration with The Sandbox for the launch of ‘The Voice Coach Battle’ represents an exciting step forward for our esteemed franchise. This innovative gaming experience invites fans and enthusiasts from around the world to step into the shoes of the coveted coach and immerse themselves in a unique game. With real prizes and exclusive opportunities, ‘The Voice Coach Battle’ brings the excitement of the TV show into the digital space like never before”.

According to Justin W. Hochberg, CEO of Virtual Brand Group, now is the time for the show on Sandbox, stating that the future of entertainment is here. 

Even Hackatao has chosen The Sandbox

Recently, even the visionary Web3 artist duo, Hackatao, seems to have chosen The Sandbox metaverse to launch the reimagined story of their new NFT game “HACK the TAO”.

The new game arrived last April, is a surreal game that involves metaverse, crypto, and NFTs. 

Specifically, the hypnotic game of “HACK the TAO” is set in a dream world inspired by the story of the artist duo and their artistic journey in the crypto world. 

Unlike The Voice Coach Battle, here players will instead have to overcome various levels, with the goal of restoring the balance of the Universe (TAO) and defeating the forces of centralization.
