The Nintendo mascot celebrates his 35th anniversary with new branded games.
July 15, 2020
In honor of Super Mario's 35th anniversary, Nintendo and Hasbro have teamed up to release "Monopoly Super Mario Celebration Edition" and "Jenga Super Mario."
According to CNET, the "Monopoly" game, retailing for $30, will depict iconic aspects of the "Super Mario" video game series, such as Toad houses and Princess Peach castles set to replace the game's traditional homes and hotels. The game also pays homage to Bowser's Kingdom, Yoshi's Island, Delfino Plaza and New Donk City. Fire Flower, Super Star, Super Leaf, Yoshi's Egg, Koopa Shell and Mushroom comprise the six player icons for the game.
Hasbro's "Jenga Super Mario," retailing for $20, will also be released to celebrate Mario's 35th anniversary. The two-to-four player game allows players to play as Mario, Luigi, Peach or Toad. Players can collect coins in an eftoBowser. Players' moves are determined by a spinner, including how many layers to climb and how many blocks to remove.
Both tabletop Mario-inspired games are due out on Aug. 1. Each board game comes during Super Mario's 35th anniversary, which has already been leveraged for partnerships with brands including LEGO.
