Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition Announced

Hasbro and Nintendo have teamed up to create a followup to last year’s Monopoly Gamer, Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition. 2-4 players will race as Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach or Toad, collecting coins, avoiding banana peels, tossing turtle shells, and generally causing chaos along the board.┬áMario Kart Edition still has the Nintendo themed properties and character special abilities of the original, but now includes a special Grand Prix Race when players pass or land on “Go”. Additional characters will be available later this fall in Power Packs, and will include the favorites Bowser, Rosalina, Shy Guy, Metal Mario, Donkey Kong and Yoshi.

Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition is available now at GameStop Stores, and will be available at most other retailers in June.
