Posted by ICv2 on February 23, 2015 @ 1:19 pm CT
Yahtzee: The Legend of Zelda is planned for late spring release, and will feature a treasure chest dice cup, and multi-colored dice. MSRP was not announced.
Additional licensed collector Yahtzee versions for Jaws, Terminator, and Back to the Future. The Terminator and Back to the Future Yahtzee cups each feature special light-up effects. Yahtzee: My Little Pony--Rainbow Dash is also planned, but pictures were not available.
Yahtzee: Avengers Age of Ultron editions--Iron Man and Ultron. Both will release around the time of the movie premiere. Also in the works for summer release are Marvel Cinematic Universe versions of Risk and Trivial Pursuit. "The whole Marvel Cinematic Universe will be encompassed in the Risk game, and also in the Trivial Pursuit edition," USAopoly Marketing Manager Cindy Saylor told ICv2. Pictures and specific release information were not yet available.
TACDEX: Super Mario is due this winter. "This is the only Super Mario card game out there," Saylor said. "It’s very similar to playing War, but it has a battle marker that allows you to suddenly change the game dynamics from ‘win with a high card’ to ‘win with a low card.’" The game is for two players, ages 8 and up. MSRP is $9.95.
Clue: Penny Dreadful is based on the Victorian series on Showtime. It will have custom illustrations from locations from the show. The game is for players ages 17 and up, and is planned for spring release. MSRP is $39.95.
Munchkin Zombies--The Walking Dead expansion is planned for summer release. In the fall Munchkin--Nightmare Before Christmas will also be released. "That will be a new full Munchkin game we’re adding," Salyor said. USAopoly also announced two new additions to its Bang!: The Walking Dead products offerings this year (see "More 'Bang!: The Walking Dead' Releases").
The company will release Trivial Pursuit: World of Harry Potter Edition this spring. "All the content has been vetted by J.K. Rowling, so it’s terrific for the Potter fan," Saylor said. MSRP is $19.95.
The new edition of Cranium: Disney Collector’s Edition due this summer will feature updated content from the film Frozen. MSRP is $29.95.
