Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicle series is fantastic. As happens with all fantastic things, somebody has made a Monopoly version of it. That’s just how the world works.

Final Fantasy VII is finally getting its own Monopoly game, which makes sense because it’s a perfect fit.
Details are scarce, but the description reads:

Final Fantasy VII Monopoly is available to pre-order at $49.99 with shipping slated for April 2017.

A licensing deal with USAopoly has resulted in versions of Monopoly for every possible fandom out there.
But this one is unexpected—and delightful.
Created to celebrate the 300th anniversary of a Japanese crafting store called Nakagawa Masamichi, the “Japanese Traditional Arts & Crafts Edition” of the game puts players in bidding and buying wars over companies that specialize in things such as teapots and handmade traditional Japanese toys.
