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
) 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 twenty 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 6th January. There’s no denying that all of this makes Boom Street
sound a lot like Monopoly, though without playing the videogame directly Electronic Theatre
is unsure just how similar it will be. Of course, Electronic Theatre
will keep you updated with all the latest details.
