Nintendo has revealed its latest Hasbro board games. It will be bringing Super Mario Jenga and Monopoly: Celebration Edition games to market soon. The official tweet offered an August 1, 2020 launch date for both, though Amazon already has product listings for the $19.99 Super Mario Jenga and $29.99 Super Mario Monopoly: Celebration Edition.
Here’s the official reveal.

The Super Mario Jenga game has a bit of a twist to it. People have different characters from the series, like Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad, who are all “climbing” the tower of blocks to reach Bowser at the top. The spinner tells you how high your character can climb and how many blocks you can pluck.
As for Super Mario Monopoly: Celebration Edition, it pulls greatly from the series. (And shouldn’t be mistaken for other installments.) You have Toad houses and Princess Peach castles instead of houses and hotels. There is also a Question Block that has sound effects and determines if you gain or lose coins as you play.
Both the Super Mario Jenga and Monopoly games will be available in stores on August 1, 2020.
