Following previously reported plans to bring Hasbro titles to consoles, EA's casual division has further detailed its plans for Monopoly, with versions of the game headed to Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, mobile phones and Pogo.com this fall. EA says the the multiplatform title will be based on Hasbro's Monopoly Here & Now: The World Edition board game, and promises "a fresh take on the timeless classic with accessible gameplay for players of all ages and skill levels." The publisher says the digital edition will add a "party twist," four player simultaneous play, and faster gameplay across "never-before-seen game boards," with mini-games based on typical board game occurrences like getting out of jail. Said EA Casual VP Chip Lange, “EA is taking Monopoly's core gameplay and bringing it to life in a way never before imagined. With this dynamic take on Hasbro’s classic board game, we’ve accelerated the pace of play, added new interactive mini-game sequences and integrated multi-player moments designed to make Monopoly a non-stop party for the whole family.”
