The trailer, which shows glimpses of different NFT collections notably Mutant Apes, CryptoPunks, and Meebits has set the speculation high with the masses waiting for an actual release date.

The team, which is also working on the Bored Ape Metaverse project, has also released its ApeCoin token earlier in March, which will reportedly act as the currency for all its in-game app purchases.
