After a months-long soft launch, Mythical’s NFL Rivals unveiled full gameplay in August, timed to the preseason of the NFL, by far the most popular sport in the United States. The game, available on Apple and Android devices, has been downloaded millions of times, according to Mythical.

In the past Apple has been resistant to blockchain-enabled mobile games, so it's notable that NFL Rivals allows players to buy and sell gaming assets without having to leave the app. The same is true for players using Android devices.

Among web3 gaming startups, Mythical has secured an exceptionally high-profile list of backers. NBA legend Michael Jordan and venture capital firm a16z are both investors in the company. In 2021 the company’s valuation hit $1.25 billion.
