After some unscheduled sneak peeks on the internet, the Animal Crossing Monopoly board game is confirmed as A Thing ™ and available on pre-order at Entertainment Earth.
Based on Animal Crossing: New Horizons, this version of Monopoly is about collecting and world-building.
The box includes 4 character tokens, 4 skill cards, 35 decoration cards, 14 chance cards, 14 Nook Miles cards, 160 resource chips, 40 five-bell coins, 54 bell coins, 40 player markers, a dice, a Nook’s Cranny die, a label sheet and the rules.
That’s a summary that doesn’t sound much like Monopoly, but that might well make the game more inviting to fans who already have the board game.
In this Animal Crossing Edition Monopoly Game, kids and adults can enjoy island life and immerse themselves in the colorful and creative world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. After your first trip around the board, you choose a Skill card with an ability you can use throughout the game. Moving around the board with custom tokens inspired by the video game, you complete island tasks and meet other characters. Instead of buying properties and paying rent, you collect bugs, fish, fossils, and fruit. You can also stop at Nook’s Cranny and cash in Bells to buy decorations. These decorations are worth Nook Miles, and the player with the most Nook Miles wins the game!
Pre-orders opened on Entertainment Earth on the 6th of July, and the game is due to ship in August at the cost of $24.99.
