You can own Rainbow Road in the new Mario Kart Monopoly

For nearly a year now, Monopoly Gamer has delighted Nintendo fans and families with its unique spin on the classic Monopoly formula, and today, Hasbro and Nintendo revealed Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition! It follows in the success of its predecessor, Monopoly Gamer Edition, the Super Mario-themed version that put a spin on the classic game of Monopoly. Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition is priced at $25 and will be available via GameStop starting today, and will make its way to more retailers this coming summer. Monopoly Gamer is a relatively new spin-off for the classic board game, which kicked off a year ago with a release themed around the cast of Mario. There's also a special power up die that allows you to use items from the Mario Kart series, which of course can have adverse (and probably infuriating) effects on other players in the game.

Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart features characters from the Mario Kart franchise as well as a few twists to the gameplay. Of course, you'll have to do all those while dodging banana peels and tossing shells, because it wouldn't be fun otherwise.

Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart Edition will include four playable racers at launch: Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi and Toad. And what Mario Kart game could be complete without those blue shells?

Another unique component is the racing feature, which is triggered when players pass Go and has players race to win a helpful Grand Prix card. Hasbro is selling additional characters such as Metal Mario, Rosalina, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, and Bowser through mystery figure packs, which are available for pre-order at GameStop now.
