Last year saw Hasbro release Monopoly Gamer, with the board game receiving a Super Mario spin, as you play as Nintendo characters that must collect coins and beat bosses. Hasbro has joined with Nintendo again, this time to release Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition.
As highlighted by Polygon, the Mario Kart Edition of the classic board game has you choose from Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, or Toad, each with their own unique abilities. A race starts when a player passes GO. Dodge banana peels and green shells as you manoeuvre your kart across the board, purchasing properties such as Rainbow Road, Mario Kart Stadium and Bowser’s Castle. After the final race, the winner is the one with the most points.
Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition is currently available exclusively at GameStop stores in the US for $29.99 (around £21.25), but will be sold across other retailers over the summer. A ‘Power Pack‘, will be available for the game in May, where you can purchase additional characters such as Bowser, Shy Guy, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Rosalina and Metal Mario.
