Nintendo UK announces an early release date for Boom Street
Out in stores from 28th December 2011

21st December 2011 – Never is there a better time to make your fortunes than after Christmas day, which leaves many of us feeling out of pocket. The exciting new title for Wii™ Boom Street™ is out 28th December and offers the perfect opportunity to master your financial skills and make your millions!

The family-friendly interactive board game is perfect for the festive season as people get together to play on the several different themed boards of Boom Street™. It is sure to get the competitive spirit going as you try to become a financial master, out-witting your opponents with savvy property purchases.

The aim of Boom Street is to get rich quicker than your opponents through a mixture of property acquisition and property investment. Challenge up to three friends at home on the same Wii Remote or play against people from across the world over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to see who can increase their net worth the quickest. You can even utilise an in-game stock market element to purchase shares and earn dividends for extra wealth.

As you move around the board you will be able to buy shops to build a property portfolio along with collecting suits that can be cashed in at the bank to earn more money to invest. There are numerous ways to play, ranging from beginner settings to help newcomers learn the basics, to Standard Mode which offers deeper strategic options including the ability to manipulate the stock market.

Each of the boards are themed on favourite Mario and Dragon Quest locations, with fan-favourites such as Starship Mario from Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) and Alltrades Abbey from Dragon Quest both making an appearance. You can play as your own Mii™ character or also choose to play as one of over 20 playable characters from the Mario and Dragon Quest franchises, including Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Yoshi, Slime, Platypunk and Stella.

If you’re a financial whizz or mad with your money there‘s fun to be had and money to be made on Boom Street, only on Wii from 28th December 2011. Time is money, so what are you waiting for?

Nice explanation. :D
I think 23rd December is the slightly better release date. (At least Germany gets it then.) Christmas is the perfect time to play all kinds of board games with your whole family. The time between Christmas and New Year's Eve should still be decent for it though. :)

Dont like how it says 'It's actually quite good'. What would you expect with a game made with Dragon Quest and Mario?
