Karta, a renowned metaverse studio, has just launched a new venture within ZEPETO, Asia’s largest metaverse platform. This move, following the successful establishment of its Fortnite studio six months ago, underscores Karta’s commitment to expanding its presence across different virtual realms.
With a focus on delivering visually captivating experiences, Karta aims to leverage its expertise within ZEPETO’s fashion-centric environment. Already, the studio has secured its first project with a major global brand, currently in production. Led by Dominique Sosseh, a seasoned Lead 3D artist at Karta, the new studio promises to bring fresh perspectives to ZEPETO’s dynamic community.
Dominique Sosseh, Lead 3D artist of new ZEPETO studio, said: “I am so excited to be part of the team working on ZEPETO. ZEPETO is different to other metaverse platforms, allowing us to work with a different range of clients and focus on a different audience than that of Fortnite or Roblox. I love its visual style, and its focus on self-expression.
“As the biggest virtual fashion marketplace in the world, I think it is a platform every brand, especially those with a strong focus on a female audience, should be aware of.”
