MONOPOLY for mobile celebrates game's 85th anniversary with Atlantic City-themed board.
12 MARCH 2020 - Marmalade Game Studio along with Hasbro Inc. is delighted to announce a brand-new DLC pack for MONOPOLY on iOS and Android adding a vintage, dazzling new board representing Atlantic City in 1935 - the setting of the original MONOPOLY board game. The DLC also includes four classic tokens found in the first edition - the cannon, handbag, rocking horse and lantern.
This special-edition Atlantic City DLC has been brought to life in celebration of MONOPOLY’s 85th anniversary and invites families to experience the nostalgia of the game’s original city. Players will find themselves transported back in time to play among the glamorous boardwalk, lively streets and glittering resorts of 1935’s Atlantic City.
Just before Christmas, Marmalade Game Studio brought the Hasbro family classic to mobile and tablets with its magical adaptation for iOS and Android. The game features a classic mode with the MONOPOLY rules everybody knows and loves, as well as a fast mode for quick games on-the-go. It also offers the option to play with house rules, allowing players to customise the rules and play the game the way they like it. The MONOPOLY game is playable in single player as well as with online and local multiplayer.
MONOPOLY for mobile is the latest addition to Marmalade Game Studio’s successful series of collaborations with Hasbro, including CLUE/CLUEDO, THE GAME OF LIFE, BATTLESHIP, and THE GAME OF LIFE Vacations games. With the MONOPOLY game for mobile, Marmalade Game Studio aims to continue its initiative to bring the best digital versions of beloved family games to life.
Michael Willis, CEO of Marmalade Game Studio, said: “It was delightful to explore the MONOPOLY game’s heritage for the 85th anniversary and allow players to take a trip down memory lane via Boardwalk and New York Avenue in the lavish 30s. We aim to continue to bring the magic of the MONOPOLY board game to mobile devices in new and innovative ways.
Players’ response to the game has been fantastic so far, and we’re looking forward to continuing to enhance it with new content in the future.”
The MONOPOLY 1935 Atlantic City DLC will be available starting March 12th on both the iOS App Store and Android’s Google Play store, priced $6.99 / £6.99 / €7.99, or as part of the Season Pass, which includes all current and future DLC packs and is priced at $29.99 / £28.99 / €32.99.
