Hasbro and Nintendo have announced a partnership to bring a new tabletop game to family game night. Combining wholesome and cherished characters from Nintendo’s catalogue with rage-inducing, never-ending gameplay, we will soon have Monopoly Gamer Edition.

But Monopoly Gamer isn’t your traditional Monopoly game! Besides including characters like Mario, Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong, the game will also feature various special abilities and themes from the Mario franchise. Additionally, the entire concept of buying-up property with cash has been done away with. Instead, Monopoly Gamer will ask players to achieve new levels, collect coins, and take on some bosses to win.

If you are looking for additional characters, you will be able to find Diddy Kong, Luigi, Wario, Boo, and many more sold separately in $2.99 Power Pack add-ons.

The standard edition of Monopoly Gamer will be available for $24.99 sometime in August. However, for those looking to get the Collector’s Edition of the game, GameStop currently has them available for $39.99. The Collector’s Edition also comes with a Bowser figure.

Below, you will find a gallery conveniently provided to you, showcasing the contents of the Monopoly Gamer Edition box, including the Bowser figure that comes within the Collector’s Edition of the game.
