Just revealed by Hasbro is Monopoly Gamer, a variant on the classic with Nintendo Super Mario characters for playing pieces—Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong. Instead of buying properties and earning money, this version of the board game has players completing levels, collecting coins, and rolling a special die for power-up boosts. Each character piece also provides its player with a unique power-up ability triggered by certain board spaces.

The standard edition of Monopoly Gamer will hit general retail in August at $25, along with additional character game pieces—Wario, Luigi, Toad, Boo, Rosalina, Diddy Kong, Fire Mario, and Tanooki Mario—each sold separately in Power Packs for $4. However, a Collector’s Edition is available already from GameStop with a Bowser figure for $40.
