An “Animal Crossing” version of Monopoly is coming. This may not be exciting to some, but for me I have this grand idea that I’ll be able to pull one over on the overlord Tom Nook. That’s right the tanuki that makes you pay to come to his island, build your house and then work and pay for other residents will meet his demise. Finally. That’s of course after I deem my husband to be Tom Nook and win the game while he pays me rent for properties..mwahahaha!!!
Ok now that I’ve gotten that bit of crazy out here’s the details…
Entertainment Earth has this on their site available for pre-order. It comes out in August, and it has some of the most adorable meeples! You can see players are all humanoid islanders. Lucky for me, I have some cool Amiibos that I’ll be using instead. I’ll be damned if I can’t play as Isabel. In order to win the game you have to earn nook miles. So I guess that Tom Nook in this game is the banking system, in which case I may have to rethink my plan.
Entertainment Earth‘s description of the game:
