Pricing for the Zelda version is $39.99 while the Pokemon themed board game is $44.99.
The Gamestop website has already released details of their exclusive items here which includes a custom square box packaging, an ocarina of time game piece, a Hyrule map lithograph and additional power cards.

This won’t be the first time we see a Nintendo themed Monopoly set. Back in 2006, USAopoly released a Nintendo Monopoly set which included various Nintendo franchises in the game, including the Zelda franchise. These two new sets however will be the first to focus solely on one Nintendo IP. Will you be picking either of these sets up for yourself? What other Nintendo franchises would you like to see adapted into a Monopoly set?
