The game merchandise retailers at Merchoid have announced a special edition of Monopoly, themed after the hit PS1 title, Final Fantasy VII.
With the classic Monopoly gameplay, the cards and board pieces will function exactly the same except re-imagined within the Final Fantasy universe of Midgar. Although the game is known to feature eight pieces, the only confirmed characters for the game include Cloud, Aerith and Sephiroth. However, the current artwork (which has not been finalized) features an almost full cast of the game’s primary characters.
The game has been listed on the official website to ship on April 14, of next year, leaving a fair amount of time to make their final decisions. It’s not unreasonable to assume that the 8 featured the characters are the wish list of the game makers, but there are still other options they could consider, such as Vincent Valentine or Yuffie. Until then, we sincerely hope that the traditional dog figure is replaced by Red XIII.
The Final Fantasy VII Monopoly board is currently available for pre-order through the Merchoid website for $49.99.
