"Animal Crossing: New Horizons" has a Monopoly version that suddenly appeared on Reddit without any official announcement from Nintendo or Hasbro.
It seems that the hit Nintendo Switch game is trying its luck with board games, if the emergence of an unannounced Monopoly based on the video game can be believed.
Hasbro's Monopoly has had countless versions in the past, including editions based on blockbuster franchises such as "Back to the Future" and "Jurassic World." Additionally, it is old news to see a Nintendo Switch title with a Monopoly version. For instance, "The Legend of Zelda" also has a version, released way back in 2014.
'Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Monopoly Edition
For a famed title like "Animal Crossing: New Horizons" getting its tabletop version is not surprising at all.
The outlet also noted that the Monopoly game could be purchased in select stores, albeit the lack of official word from the companies behind the board game and the Nintendo Switch title.
'Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Monopoly: What to Expect?
The leaked photo of the board game shows that players could play with at least four avatars from "Animal Crossing," but Nintendo Life suggested would be better if it included more villagers.
The Villagers in the Monopoly edition are seen to have brought an item with them, such as an apple, a net, a fishing rod, and a shovel.
On top of that, the"Animal Crossing" version of Monopoly also replaced the traditional money with Bells. Plus, the properties from the board game have become resources from the video game's island, such as fish, fruits, fossils, and bugs, all of which brings the setting of the game to the tabletop.
'Animal Crossing: New Horizons' Monopoly: Is It Official?
ComicBook said in the same report that the calysunflower provided the UPC, or the barcode of the Monopoly game, which other users confirm to be a legitimate release.
Meanwhile, Kotaku reported that the game is also available for pre-orders in select European shops.
So, if the Reddit user, who posted the game online, is to be believed, Walmart now carries the unannounced edition in its stores.
