Final Fantasy VII Gets it’s Own Monopoly Board Game Next Year

Yes you read that right.

The people at merchoid has opened pre-orders for their upcoming officially licensed Final Fantasy VII themed Monopoly Board Game.

Set to be released for April of next year, the description on the board game states:

Delve into the evolving city of Midgar in search of the latest business opportunities. Perhaps you’ll buy up a string of plots for housing development for the people, or go industrial and build a Mako reactor plant.

So I’m guessing this is just simply a re-skinned Monopoly with tokens and street names changed to iconic Final Fantasy VII locations and characters. While I am personally not a fan of the game (Final Fantasy Tactics <3) or of Monopoly. I am at least eyeing to get this when this comes out next year just because it’s a game themed board game.
