The family-friendly Monopoly style interactive board game Boom Street comes to Nintendo Wii on 6th January. Better known as Itadaki Street in Japan or Fortune Street in USA. Boom Street asks you to navigate one of several different themed boards, purchasing property as you go while charging opponents for landing on them.
The objective of Boom Street is to get rich quicker than your opponents through a mixture of property acquisition and property investment. Challenge up to three friends at home on the same Wii Remote or play against people from across the world over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to see who can increase their net worth the quickest. You can even utilise an in-game stock market element to purchase shares and earn dividends for extra wealth.
Moving around the board you will be able to purchase shops to build a property portfolio and reputatation along with collecting suits that can be cashed in at the bank to earn more money to invest. There are several ways to play, ranging from beginner settings to help newcomers learn the basics, to Standard Mode which offers deeper strategic options including the ability to manipulate the stock market.
Each of the boards are themed on favourite Mario and Dragon Quest locations, with fan-favourites such as Starship Mario from Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) and Alltrades Abbey from Dragon Quest both making an appearance. You can play as your own Mii character or also choose to play as one of over 20 playable characters from the Mario and Dragon Quest franchises, including Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Yoshi, Slime, Platypunk and Stella.
If you’re a financial whizz or mad with your money there‘s fun to be had and money to be made on Boom Street, only on Wii from 6th January. Time is money, so what are you waiting for?
