Who needs Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed and Far Cry when you have the all-time classic board game Monopoly.

Ubisoft has announced a new take on Hasbro's property trading game called Monopoly Madness - a title that "reinvents" the iconic board game and is launching on the Nintendo Switch and multiple other platforms on 9th December this year. Here's the rundown, courtesy of the PR:

In MONOPOLY Madness, players will compete to buy and upgrade properties in MONOPOLY City while Mr. Monopoly is away on his well-earned vacation. They will face up to 5 other players in shorter rounds that are a frantic, real-time race on the chaotic streets of MONOPOLY City without the boundaries of the board. Players will need to collect money and other resources around the map in order to buy and upgrade their properties. The more properties players own, the more points they’ll earn, bringing them closer to the finish line in the race to riches! Along the way, players can also grab power-ups from Community Chests including bulldozers, jackhammers and more and use them against opponents to gain an advantage to win. However, players will need to watch out for random events that can happen at any time, making the journey to become the wealthiest of them all even more chaotic.

20 new playable characters inspired by the classic MONOPOLY game tokens can be played on four unique environments with their own unique ambiance and architecture, including the iconic City and its Night Life, Beach Town and Cozy Falls. Each environment comes with several levels and layout, giving a total of 20 different arenas to play.
