Taking a cue from the success of Monopoly Gamer in 2017, Hasbro has now released Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart, with this game featuring a quartet of character from various Mario Kart titles. Here's a short description of the game:

Quote:
Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart takes the property-trading game Monopoly in a new direction thanks to the introduction of characters from Nintendo's Mario Kart games!

Move around the game board as Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, or Toad; buy iconic Mario Kart properties such as Bowser's Castle and Rainbow Road. Pass Go to trigger a race from Mario Kart Cup, dodge banana peel tokens, toss shells, and collect coins. A super star space activates special abilities and rolling the power-up die adds a special boost. Winning in this game is all about winning races! Who will end up with the coveted Grand Prix card? When the final race is over, the player with the highest score wins.
It's not clear from the description how much this title differs from Monopoly Gamer, but since this title went on sale today, March 28, 2018 at GameStop retail stores and on GameStop.com, I'm sure we'll learn more soon. Hasbro notes that this title will be available through other retailers and its own online shop in June 2018. Later in 2018, new "Power Pack" expansions with new characters will also be available, with these characters including Bowser, Rosalina, Shy Guy, Metal Mario, Donkey Kong, and Yoshi.
