Whoa Whoa Whoa – are Nintendo trying to give me an excitement overload? Two of my favourite things; Board Games and Video Games, are being combined to make one amazing piece of time consuming joy! And it’s based on Pokemon.. COME ON!!
Monopoly: Pokemon Kanto Edition, as it’s known, is due for release on the 15th September. Based in Kanto, it will no doubt revolve around the original 150 Pokemon characters. Images of the game pieces have already been released, and look adorable. You will have a choice to play as Pikachu, Eevee, or Jugglypuff, as well as the three original starters; Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander. I’m claiming Squirtle right here right now, FYI!
The board game takes you through eight gyms where you will battle all kinds of Pokemon. You can buy, sell and trade with other trainers. There are even Battle Cards and Professor Oak cards which will either reward or penalise you for your encounters with Pokemon.
You can buy it now for £29.99 from Amazon.
