Despite the high-tech insanity that is the gaming industry right now, the market for early game platforms still seems to be pretty strong. Maybe it’s the nostalgia or something, but don’t pretend like those 8-bit arcade games don’t make you feel some type of way and the thought of having an actual old-fashioned game night isn’t actually kind of exciting for you. Or maybe that’s just me.
Either way, fans of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda franchise will probably be pretty keen on this super-traditional re-up of the game. Monopoly have officially released its licensed Zelda-themed edition, which includes a whole new set of playing pieces, currency and locations, for those who don’t already have enough versions of the game to indulge in. And if you’re really into it, pre-ordering the game via Game Stop retailers (i.e. EB Games for Australian fans) will score you an exclusive Ocarina of Time playing token, map of Hyrule and additional game play cards.
The Legend of Zelda Monopoly Collector’s Edition is now available for pre-order exclusively via Game Stop and will be released on September 15.
