The Legend of Zelda Special Edition Monopoly Set Arriving in September; Pre-Order Bonuses Available at GameStop
The Legend of Zelda has thrilled fans with its worlds, characters, and iconic weapons (and “HYAAAAAHS!”) for decades, and now for those looking for a classic Zelda experience away from the TV screen, GameStop may have your answer next month.
Nintendo’s classic franchise heads to the tabletop next month with The Legend of Zelda special edition Monopoly set, which will be available for purchase at GameStop on September 15th, 2014 for $39.99. Like other special editions of the classic board game, the set will be the standard Monopoly board but with the extra Zelda flair: locations and names are themed after worlds and places from The Legend of Zelda, and plays will take their tokens as the Bow, Hookshot, Boomerang, and Hylian Shield in an attempt to claim the Triforce. And, yes, there are Rupees.
In addition, GameStop will be offering several pre-order bonuses for the tabletop set, such as an Ocarina of Time token piece, and six “Power Cards” that will add additional features and game play, though no explanation or details are given on what they do in the classic Monopoly gameplay.
