Ready your blue shells, because Hasbro and Nintendo have partnered once again to introduce a new variation on their classic board game in the form of Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition.

The game launched today at Gamestop stores in the US, with a full retail rollout to major retailers to follow in the Summer.

Throughout the game, fans will pass – and potentially purchase – iconic Mario Kart-themed properties such as Rainbow Road and Bower’s Castle while facing familiar challenges like dodging banana peels and tossing shells, along the way.

Fans can choose from Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, or Toad Mario Kart character tokens to embark on their race around the Mushroom Kingdom.

Picking up some of the new additions from Monopoly Gamer that launched last year, each Mario Kart game token has special powers and abilities to use during the gameplay (e.g. when the player with the Toad token rolls a “Power-Up Boost.” All players must pay him or her 1 coin). 

Players can purchase additional Power Pack tokens later this fall to take their gameplay to the next level and collect additional characters, including Bowser, Rosalina, Shy Guy, Metal Mario, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi.
