This is the second day in a row I was surprised by something Skyrim-related. The first was the inclusion of the game in the the trailer for Nintendo’s upcoming Switch console (though, weirdly, Bethesda was quick to comment that the title hasn’t actually been confirmed for the system). The second occurred today when I headed on over to Merchoid to check out their new releases. Lo and behold, Skyrim Monopoly is coming in March 2017. The description reads:
Enter the realms of Tamriel in this brand new Skyrim themed edition of the fast-dealing, property trading game, as you experience lore, characters and locations from the bestselling videogame.
Whether your plans are to set up villages in Winterhold or construct huge castles in Windhelm, get ready to unleash your inner entrepreneurial spirit as you lay claim to some of the most valuable plots of land in Tamriel.
Most importantly, you’ll learn the intimidating new Dragon shout “Fus Ro Deal!” as you bargain, buy and trade your way to success. Just beware those fearsome Dragons who may strike at any moment to destroy your hard earned investment.
- Pack of MONOPOLY money
You can pre-order the game now for $47.99, so we’re pretty sure this isn’t some gaming industry crap where they deny something obvious only to officially announce it later.
