Hasbro Gaming partners with Nintendo for Monopoly Gamer

Hasbro Gaming has announced a new partnership with video game giant Nintendo for a new take on Monopoly entitled Monopoly Gamer.

This remixed version of the traditional board game features elements that will be familiar to gamers including character power-ups, boss battles, and point collecting. 

The game includes four character tokens, representing the iconic Super Mario characters of Mario, Princess Peach, Donley Kong and Yoshi. Each character comes with their own unique power-ups, lending an extra layer of strategy to the game.

The box contains the game board, four Character Tokens, four Character Cards, four Reminder Cards, eight Boss Cards, 16 Title Deed Cards, one Numbered Die, one Power-Up Die and 90 coins which will act as currency.

Launching alongside the game will be Monopoly Gamer Power Packs, pocket-money priced packs which include an additional Nintendo character piece along with a character card and sticker. Characters confirmed for the Power Packs include Nintendo favorites such as Wario, Luigi, Toad, Boo, Rosalina, Diddy Kong, Fire Mario and, of course, Tanooki Mario (pictured below).

Monopoly Gamer will hit store shelves in Autumn 2017 at $24.99 (UK price TBC).
