    The world-famous friendship-destroying family board game is adding the Mario twist to its latest edition, Monopoly Gamer. As the name implies, it has been "gamified" to include features like power-ups for each character token. For example, landing on the Super Star board space will activate Princess Peach’s Super Star ability to collect rent from the bank. Players can also activate a special Power-up boost by rolling the Power-up die.

    The MONOPOLY GAMER Edition game will feel familiar yet fresh to both MONOPOLY and Nintendo fans, as players race around the board to complete levels (buy property), collect coins (money)—either from the bank or by using special powers to take them from other players—and battle legendary bosses to rack up points and win the game. Players will find familiar tokens from the Super Mario universe including Mario, Donkey Kong, Princess Peach and Yoshi.

    The standard MONOPOLY GAMER Edition game will be available this August at $24.99, and is for ages 8 and up. Also available will be MONOPOLY GAMER POWER PACKS (each sold separately at $2.99 each), which will include one of several Super Mario character tokens like Luigi, Boo, Rosalina, Wario, Diddy Kong and more.

    Will Mario or Donkey Kong be the reason for your next friendship feud bonding?

    I could have swore I've seen a Nintendo monopoly game in EB for a least a decade now.

    I got a Nintendo themed one of these ages ago. I'll post up a pic of it when I find it.

    Edit: nvm, it's buried in storage somewhere.

    Nintendo has been scrapping the bottom of the mario barrel so hard that they are now 2 meters away from the core of the earth

    If you buy your own NFC tags, assign them, and stick them to the monopoly pieces, can you make your own ghetto Amiibos?

    There's a thousand and one variants of Monopoly. I see no reason to get this one. The only differences are in flavor text and set pieces anyway. The only monopoly that offered a good improvement was that one that included pin cards instead of having to organize the bills.

    Also, levels as properties and coins as cash is a good idea, but the marketing campaign message is just cringeworthy.

    There is much, much more to the gameplay of this version than just the properties and coins. There are MANY really nice twists on this one that make for more of a Mario Party-ish experience than just straight up Monopoly with a different board and pieces. My daughter has never enjoyed ANY version of Monopoly as the majority ARE just face-lifts. She's already in love with this though because there are so many fun additions.

    I picked up the Gamestop Collectors Edition last night which has a few nice extras like Bowser and actual custom slots to hold the extra characters should a person buy some.

    Ah. Alright then. Guess the company must have changed over the years. Back in 2006-2010 it was nothing but flavor text differences (the most extreme example would be Spongebob Monopoly. Which was a thing by the way). Good to see that this one isn't just a direct rehash of the original.

    Doesn't change that the marketing text sounds really cringy though.

    It's not the first mario monopoly indeed.
    Seen them plenty of times.

    Including Game of Thrones, BTTF, Zelda and several other ones.

    Some people need to do some minor reading and research before commenting. ;)
