…Nintendo makes a Monopoly for the gamer in you?

Nintendo Monopoly

Monopoly and Nintendo have combined forces and created Nintendo Monopoly, the classic board game but with a Mario twist. The board features some of Nintendo’s most popular characters, including Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, Star Fox and Wario. Plus, the pewter game pieces are modeled after a Donkey Kong barrel, Link’s boots, a Hylian Shield, an NES controller, Mario’s hat, and a Koopa shell. It’ll makes you want to be an eight-year-old tyrannical monopolist all over again, buying up everything you land on until the other players have no choice but to concede a shameful defeat.
