Start saving those rupees, as Zelda Monopoly US release date is confirmed by GameStop

The Legend of Zelda may be coming to a Monopoly board near you according to a pre-order listing on GameStop, as USAopoly's latest themed Monopoly set has been given a release date of 15th September in the US.

Priced at $39.99, the special edition of the board game will use Rupees as its currency and each block of properties will revolve around a different Zelda game, including Skyward Sword, Ocarina of Time, Minish Cap, A Link Between Worlds, The Wind Waker, and Majora's Mask.

Train stations have also been replaced with Zelda-themed methods of transportation, such as Epona, the King of Red Lions, Link's Loftwing and the Spirit Trains, while houses and hotels have been renamed as Deku Sprouts and Deku Trees. Chance and Community Chest cards will also be known as Empty Bottles and Treasure Chests. Whether said chest cards will come in an actual chest that plays the classic Zelda treasure theme remains to be seen.

If you pre-order the set from GameStop, you'll also get an exclusive Ocarina of Time piece as well. Other GameStop exclusives include six item power cards which represent different key items from the series, such as the Wind Waker, Goddess Harp and Phantom Hourglass, and an 11x17in Hyrule Map lithograph in a treasure chest holder.
