In the relatively recent past we’ve gotten iterations of Monopoly based on World of Warcraft and Nintendo and now Monopoly’s influence is being stretched ever further into the gaming industry as a Street Fighter edition has beenannounced (opens in new tab).
You can take a look at the entire game board here (opens in new tab) which has properties jointly based on characters and the stages they inspire. The pieces – which are really 3/4 of the point of playing Monopoly – will be Chun Li’s bracelet, Vega’ mask, a hadouken fireball, Bison, Ryu, and Zangief’s shorts. We were kind of hoping for Zangief’s thigh hair, but whatever.
This iteration of the old-as-dirt board game will cost $39.99. No word on whether or not this version of Monopoly will fix the painfully boring process of playing Monopoly.
