THE LEGEND OF ZELDA Monopoly Set Gets a Release Date
By Armi Dimaranan on August 7, 2014
The Legend of Zelda has conquered the 2D and 3D realm, but now it’s time for the franchise to invade our living rooms in a 4D atmosphere. Yeah, that’s right. Now we can get a hold of rupees without breaking pots with this special Legend of Zelda collector’s edition of Monopoly.
The limited edition Zelda set includes a custom designed board, with memorable in-game universe locations like Link’s House, the Temple of Time, and Lon Lon Ranch. We also get themed money, custom Chance, Community Chest, and deed cards that will make any fan want to laminate it all so it lasts forever.
The Zelda Monopoly set won’t release until September, but GameStop has it listed for decent price of $39.99. And of course, like all GameStop pre-orders, there are exclusive items you can score from the retailer. You get a GameStop exclusive Ocarina of Time token (as well as other tokens in the form of a bow, hookshot, triforce, and Hylian shield), an 11×17 Hyrule lithograph map and treasure chest holder, and six item power cards for added gameplay.
Take a closer look at the box, game board, and tokens below:
I am actually really excited to get a hold of this set. The Legend of Zelda is one of my favorite series, and Monopoly is probably my favorite board game. Glad to see the two finally coming together in an official capacity and eager to get my hands on that money so I can make it rain rupees. I’m also calling it now, dibs on the Triforce, though that shield is pretty badass. I’m guessing that the Master Sword will be part of a DLC set.
The Zelda Monopoly board is slated to release September 15, 2014, for $39.99. You can pre-order yours now from GameStop with extra goodies.
