Hasbro and Nintendo introduce Monopoly Gamer
The MONOPOLY brand from Hasbro and Nintendo today announced the launch of the MONOPOLY GAMER Edition game that introduces beloved Nintendo characters and new twists to the MONOPOLY game.
The Monopoly Gamer Edition game will feel familiar yet fresh to both Monopoly and Nintendo fans, as players race around the board to complete levels (buy property), collect coins (money) – either from the bank or by using special powers to take them from other players – and battle legendary bosses to rack up points and win the game. Players can choose from fan-favourite Super Mario character tokens, such as Mario, Donkey Kong, Princess Peach and Yoshi.
For the first time in MONOPOLY history, each character token will have its own unique Power-up ability, introducing another layer of strategy for new and old players alike. For example, landing on the Super Star board space will activate Princess Peach’s Super Star ability to collect rent from the bank. Players can also activate a special Power-up boost by rolling the Power-up die.
“The Monopoly Gamer Edition game combines the world of Nintendo with the physical, face-to-face world of the Monopoly game,” said Jonathan Berkowitz, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing for Hasbro Gaming. “By giving Monopoly tokens unique abilities and adding game-play elements such as the Power-up die, we are offering fans an exciting new way to engage with two of their favourite gaming brands.”
The standard MONOPOLY GAMER Edition game will be available this August at mass market retailers for a suggested retail price of £19.99, and is for ages 8 and up.
