The Legend of Zelda fans have more trivia to past the time before the next big release in 2015, USAopoly has announced a special edition The Legend of Zelda Monopoly board, coming on September 15.
In traditional fashion, the Monopoly board has been styled to reflect Zelda. The currency is now Rupees, Deku Trees and Deku Sprouts replace hotels and houses, empty bottles replace chance cards and there are other small changes to reflect the theme.
The board game pieces have been changed, from the classic car, boat, dog, trashcan comes The Bow, Hookshot, Boomerang, Triforce and the Hylian Shield. There is also an Ocarina of Time piece exclusive to GameStop buyers.
