Invest in top-tier superheroes and fight over who gets to be Deku's Mask
Tired of real estate but still want to fight your friends for money? A new My Hero Academia edition of Monopoly is on its way to liven things up!
The new edition of the classic game advertises itself as a "real-life battle simulation that will hone your buying, selling, and trading Quirks." Property squares are replaced by students from Class 1-A and notable faculty members. Rack up Rewards and Trophies for your sponsored superheroes in place of houses and hotels, and brace for the victory or defeat that comes with Go Beyond! and Plus Ultra! cards.
The game makes use of "Hero Point" currency, and also features six game tokens: Eraserhead's Visor, Grenade Glove, Deku's Mask, Dummy Bomg, Shigaraki's Hand, and the UA Sigil.
MONOPOLY: My Hero Academia is intended for 2-6 players ages 8 and up. The game will retail for $39.95, and is coming soon to toy and game stores.
