The most recognizable and unforgettable characters in the video game industry have teamed up to bring you the Nintendo Collector’s Edition of the world’s most popular board game, Monopoly. No controllers are necessary this time as you join forces with Mario, Luigi, Link, Zelda, Kirby and others on a quest to defeat your opponents and own it all.

The Nintendo Collector’s edition comes complete with 6 collectible pewter tokens featuring Mario’s Cap, Link’s Iron Boots, Donkey Kong’s Barrel, Hylian Shield, Koopa Shell and NES Controller. Rules include a 60 minute speed play option for a shorter game with the same amount of fun. Now you can buy, sell and trade your favorite Nintendo characters for a whole new game-playing experience. From everyone’s favorite red-capped plumber to barrel-tossing Donkey Kong to bounty hunter Samus Aran, they’re all up for grabs in this exciting fun-filled adventure. Are you game?

"As someone who grew up with a Nintendo controller in his hand, working on this game was like a dream come true," said Derek Stucker, Game Designer, USAOPOLY. "Throughout the games development I tried to include as much for the old school Nintendo players as the newer ones, from faded back screen shots on the game board center of the original Donkey Kong, Super Mario Brothers and Legend of Zelda games, to the integration of the original NES controller as one of the tokens. Whether you’re someone like me who grew up glued to the original Nintendo Entertainment System, or a young kid just picking up a Nintendo DS or Wii for the first time, you’re sure to have a blast with this game."
