Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines, and let’s-a-go!

As a follow up to the Monopoly Gamer last year, Hasbro and Nintendo are teaming up to launch Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart. The game will introduce iconic Mario Kart characters and familiar Nintendo twists the Monopoly game, and will be available at GameStop and most major retailers this summer.

Throughout the game, fans will pass—and potentially purchase—iconic Mario Kart-themed properties, such as Rainbow Road and Bower’s Castle, while facing familiar challenges like dodging banana peels, tossing shells, and more along the way. Players can choose from Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, or Toad Mario Kart character tokens.

To introduce a Mario Kart-themed layer of competition, landing on or passing “Go” triggers a race where players compete for the coveted “Grand Prix” card. As seen in the Monopoly Gamer Edition game, each Mario Kart game token has special powers and abilities to use during the gameplay. When the final race is over, the player with the highest score wins.

Players can purchase additional “Power Pack” tokens later this fall to take their game play to the next level and collect additional characters, including Bowser, Rosalina, Shy Guy, Metal Mario, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi.
