Nintendo is not just a name for consoles. Unlike its peers, it has lent its properties to many products – from luxury smartwatch to footwear, and now, Monopoly and Game of Life.
Earlier this month, Hasbro and Nintendo revealed that the two brands have teamed up for two new games: Game of Life: Super Mario Edition board game and Monopoly Animal Crossing New Horizons Edition board game.
With the world’s famous Italian plumber and his gang in the mix, the Game of Life is not what you expect it to be.
In this Mario edition, you can choose to play as Mario, Luigi, Peach, or Yoshi, to journey through the Mushroom Kingdom, and finally spinning to win in a battle against Bowser.
So, yeah, no retirement home here like in the regular game.
Expect the Mushroom Kingdom-themed board graphics along with a bunch of Super Mario world’s gold coins, and tokens of the four characters.
In the meantime, Monopoly Animal Crossing New Horizons Edition is the Monopoly you know and love, in the popular Nintendo video game theme.
With this edition, you can visit islands, collect resources like bugs, fishes, fossils, and fruit, and sell them for Bells, or to buy decorations and also earn Nook Miles.
Each set comes with 4 Animal Crossing New Horizons-inspired tokens, Nook’s Cranny die, as well as Skill Cards.
The Game of Life: Super Mario Edition board game and Monopoly Animal Crossing New Horizons Edition board game are in the market now for around US$25-27 and US$25-ish. Last checked, the latter is sold out on Walmart while the former is still available.
