11 Aug Hasbro Teams Up with Nintendo For Special Edition Super Mario Monopoly Board Game
U.S.-based toy and board game Hasbro has teamed up with Japanese electronics company, Nintendo for a special edition version of the Monopoly board game. Called Monopoly Gamer Edition, the board game mashes up the beloved Super Mario characters with a new twist to the traditional tabletop game.
According to a press release from Hasbro, Monopoly Gamer Edition deviates from the classic board game in some big ways. “Instead of standard Monopoly tokens, the game features Super Mario characters, each with their own special powers within gameplay. Play as Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, or Donkey Kong. Finish the game by defeating Bowser at the end! It’s not just about money in this game; players earn points by buying Properties, collecting Coins, and beating Bosses. The player with the highest score wins the game.”
The Monopoly Gamer Edition is available to purchase for $24.99 through select retailers. The edition also features downloadable content called Monopoly Gamer Power Packs, which include one of several Super Mario character tokens which retails for $2.99 each. Link, Link, Link
