USAopoly had a plethora of licensed game announcements at Toy Fair, and here we round up those not covered in previous stories.
The Game of Life: My Little Pony will release in the summer, with an MSRP of $39.95. Fans of Friendship is Magic can journey around Equestria with Dr. Hooves, DJ Pon-3, Muffins and Twilight Sparkle.
Several new Monopoly versions are planned, including two with window boxes with oversized zinc tokens. Monopoly: The Legend of Zelda and Monopoly: Pokemon are both planned for September release and have MSRP of $45.00. The Pokemon game will carry the classic Kanto region theme.
USAopoly plans two versions of Monopoly tied to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a property which is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year. One will be based on the current (2012) Nickelodeon cartoon version, and release in July with a $39.95 MSRP. The "retro" version will feature characters and images from the 1987 cartoon, and release in September with an MSRP of $49.95.
Monopoly: WWE will feature current stars of the World Wrestling Federation. It is planned for spring release.
Monopoly: The Big Bang Theory will release in June and will be the first Monopoly game to feature seven tokens.
A trio of releases for A Christmas Story is planned for third quarter release, including Monopoly: A Christmas Story, Yahtzee: A Christmas Story, and a 3' tall leg lamp puzzle.
Making full use of its license of daVinci’s Wild West card game Bang!, USAopoly plans a version based on Blizzard Entertainment’s forthcoming fall video game Heroes of the Storm. The new video game will be a mash-up brawl match between popular characters from the World of Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo franchises. Release is planned for third quarter, timed after the video game release, with an MSRP of $24.95.
Red vs. Blue will have a new iteration in September when Bang!: Halo is released. Master Chief will undoubtedly enjoy playing the Clint Eastwood cowboy-of-few-words role when the Wild West game meets the Halo universe. MSRP will be $24.95. There is also a Halo version of TACDEX planned for August (see “Borg's 'TACDEX' From USAopoly”).
Two new versions of Yahtzee are planned. Yahtzee: Transformers will be a fall release and features a dice cup in the shape of Optimus Prime’s head. Like Yahtzee: The Walking Dead (see "USAopoly's 2014 'Walking Dead' Products"), this version will include the new “Battle Yahtzee” style of play. The other version is Yahtzee: Plants vs. Zombies, which, when released, will have an MSRP of $24.95.
Connect 4: Super Mario is planned for spring release and will pit Mario and Luigi against each other. MSRP is $24.95.
