Special Pac-Man Edition of Monopoly Includes a Mini Arcade Cabinet
Monopoly has been around in some form for over a century, and as Game Rant reports, the brand is getting ready to pay homage to another iconic game from a different era. In honor of Pac-Man's 40th anniversary this year, a special-edition Monopoly game inspired by the arcade classic is hitting shelves.
Monopoly Arcade Pac-Man replicates Pac-Man's pixilated world for an analog board game. Players collect power-ups like cherries and pellets when they land on certain spaces, and a ghost piece—either Blinky, Pinky, Inky, or Clyde—follows them around the board as the game progresses.
The video game legend hasn't been totally removed from his arcade roots for this iteration, though. The Monopoly game also comes with a miniature arcade cabinet that acts as the players' digital bank. The accessory even includes the retro Pac-Man logo from the original game that debuted in 1980.
Monopoly Arcade Pac-Man is currently unavailable on Amazon, but it's scheduled for release on August 1 for $30. Here are more examples of special-edition Monopoly boards that have been released in the past.
