'Muhammad Ali — The Next Legends' is part of ASM's new long-term partnership with Authentic Brands Group (ABG), which owns Muhammad Ali Enterprises in partnership with Lonnie Ali , who is a trustee of the Muhammad Ali Family Trust. The game will be driven by ASM's artificial intelligence protocol, while web3 creative factory Non-Fungible Labs leads the visual game and character design. This partnership is the first of many for ABG's brands within the ASM ecosystem.

When 'Muhammad Ali — The Next Legends' launches, players will be able to collect unique NFT boxers powered by ASM's artificial intelligence, train them and compete for the first time in a fully AI, web3 combat experience. Players will eventually need to unite two NFTs to play the game – an ASM Brain, which is also an NFT, with their boxer.  Utilizing "Artificial Intelligence Gyms," a signature component of the ASM Protocol, owners will train their brain on the skills needed to win a match (i.e., agility, endurance, stance, sparring, jabs, hooks and uppercuts). Following in the footsteps of the 3-time world champion, the goal of the game will be to train and develop your boxer and win matches against other boxers to eventually become "The Next Legend." Each 3D boxer is completely unique in both the physical character model and its mental ability. Minting dates for boxers and additional game details about the game will be revealed in the coming months.

"We are incredibly excited and honored to welcome world-renowned icon Muhammad Ali into web3," says David McDonald , CEO of ASM. "ABG's portfolio of world-leading brands make them the ideal partner to introduce NFT-curious consumers to the metaverse. Our Non-Fungible Intelligence powers and revolutionizes web3 gaming by allowing NFT owners to train their characters, producing limitless possibilities and interoperable use cases in the metaverse."

"We are thrilled for fans to immerse themselves in the world of 'Muhammad Ali — The Next Legends'," said Marc Rosen , President, Entertainment at ABG. "ABG is delighted to kick off this unique partnership with ASM by using the strength of our brands to positively contribute to storytelling behind ASM's innovative technology."

"Our team is so proud to be on the cutting edge creating an entire digital world inspired by Muhammad Ali ," says Alex Smeele , CEO at Non-Fungible Labs. "The Next Legends project is a huge endeavor as we are working to ensure every single aspect and character is unique and one-of-a-kind. These boxers have distinct personalities and characteristics and it's been an adventure for our team to build."

JSAUX Takes The Lead In Steam Deck Accessories

JSAUX has been all the rage in the world of steam deck gaming recently, and rightly so.

JSAUX Steam Deck Accessories

The renowned digital accessories brand rolled out its steam deck docking station in June and became an instant hit amongst steam deck users around the globe.

Following the delay in the launch JSAUX ' s new accessory, the Steam Official Dock – the first third-party docking station made specifically for the steam deck – attracted attention and captured the imagination of many worldwide.

The all-new steam deck offers users multiple customisable and flexible options. Equipped with a desktop mode, the steam deck transforms into a PC gaming by connecting to a monitor or TV.

The docking station also acts as a stand for the steam deck, allowing gamers to optimise their playing experience, functionality, and aesthetics by playing while standing on a table.

Priced at $39.99 , the steam deck docking station is an affordable accessory for users, adding to its functional appeal. Furthermore, with plans for the second batch of products to start shipping globally by the end of June, steam deck gamers can expect to get their hands on their own docking station if they haven ' t already.

With a USB-C male and female and HDMI capabilities, the steam deck allows a stunning power input of 100W and output of 4K60Hz and supports high-intensity data transfers of up to 10Gbps. The advanced steam deck accessory further improves the user experience with a USB-A*2 that supports data transmission of up to 480Mbps and a power supply of 5V/1A. For more connectivity options, it also has an RJ45 option to support 100/ 10M networks.

This isn ' t the first JSAUX product that has captured the attention and enthusiasm of steam deck players worldwide. The brand offers an exclusive range of high-tech and comfort accessories to pair with the steam deck and provide an ultimate gaming experience. Going by the motto, " Connect More, Power More," JSAUX is changing the game with its accessories.

Like the docking stations, JSAUX protective standing case has also added comfort, convenience, and optimisation to steam deck gaming. Along with serving its core purpose of protecting the steam deck from dust and damage with high-quality TPU and PC material, the built-in stand allows users to place the device on any desk and continue gaming uninterrupted.

But that ' s not all. The protective standing case also boasts a reserve heat dissipation port, or in simple terms, a cool vent, that prevents the device from heating up during intense gameplay. Despite such improved features, the usability and gameplay remain as smooth as ever with the case's texture being incredibly adaptable for the skin and not affecting user control.

About JSAUX : JSAUX's range of steam deck accessories covers every area of the gaming experience ensuring users can keep their steam decks in perfect condition while maximising their gameplay performance. From screen glass and silicon cases to storage bags, 90° adapters, stand bases, and much more, the JSAUX collection has it all.

Delivering power, enabling data transit, providing audio/video connectivity, and enhancing productivity, the company develops customer-centric solutions beyond what is available in the market.

Transforming its customers ' digital life with comfort, functionality, style, and performance is what drives the JSAUX brand!
