Do you remember Monopoly? That fun board game that we all played years ago which saw you moving round the board, passing go and not collecting $200? Arguing over this and that, and ending up in jail eventually, all the while seeing Mr. Monopoly smiling away – that top hat wearing dropkick.
EA Play announced that it’s working on Monopoly Streets, obviously based on the famous board game.
Chip Lange, EA’s Hasbro Division:
“We’re taking Hasbro’s No. 1 family game brand and masterfully striking the balance of offering the classic Monopoly play experience and adding a spectacular new visual treatment as we bring the classic board to life with players walking the streets of Monopoly.”
“Monopoly Streets will bring people together and connect families all over the world by offering online gameplay through their gaming consoles. We think this unique, combined offering will bring families together around the TV this holiday season for a classic family gaming tradition they’ll remember for years to come.”
Online rankings, leaderboards and downloadable content is said to be available soon for this title, which will release this year in “Fall”, for PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. In addition to this, a DS Monopoly title will also come out. I’ve also read that the game will be available through digital distribution for PC. A browser-based game is also in the works too for EA’s Pogo.
