First announced several months ago, there has been little information regarding the Sonic Boom Monopoloy game depite both the show and the toyline doing really well, however retailer Forbidden Planet have today posted a listing of the game which includes price and a release date.
The game is set to be released on November 30th of this year and it’s priced at quite a hefty £29.99.
From the quality of the photo it’s difficult to see what each board sapce is based on, however from a quick inspection it seems to be based on Sonic Boom the TV series and not the disasterous videogame which is exactly one year old today… happy birthday.
Furthermore, no game pieces can be seen but money has different characters on it depening on it’s value.
Just think, soon you’ll be able to build a hotel complex on Meh Burger or stay at Hotel Del Sticks or own property at Eggmans Base.
