Street Fighter Monopoly coming soon - and you can help choose which characters are in it

The whole reason videogames were invented was so that kids had something to do other than play Monopoly. But that doesn't mean videogames can't make Monopoly awesome. Capcom has licensed an official Street Fighter version of the classic property acquisition board game - but it's not finished yet. Know what that means? You can have your say in which characters should be in it!

Don't worry about matching character traits to the existing Monopoly pieces (even though the ship should plainly be Guile and the old boot should be Dan). All you need to do is head over to the Capcom-Unity blog and vote for your favourite character to whittle down the list from 12 to 6. Simples.

We're looking forward to seeing how the likes of Community Chest and Chance cards will be re-written to work with the Street Fighter lore. How about: "Street fights break out around all your houses" for street repairs, or "You win first prize in a beauty contest! Unless you're Bison." And of course there's the legendary "get out of a combo free" card.

And of course, we expect to see this:

    With the Metallica version you could buy extra pieces - I wonder if that'll be the case with this? Dont expect any clever streetfighter related community chest or chance cards though - they seem to be the same regardless of what monopoly version you have.

    This seems pretty cool. Don't know why they didn't just make 12 pieces though. (Insert generic comment mocking Capcom's DLC add-on structure)

    Capcom will have 20 characters in the box (out of 4 playable) that will require you to pay additional $$$ to unlock each character out of their special sealed case.

    Don't tell me. Boardwalk has been replaced with Shadowloo, right?

    Still going to wait a few months for the SUPER Street Fighter Monopoly Turbo Arcade HD with four extra spaces and bonus Chance/Community Chest cards. Amazing how bitter I still am after Ultimate MvC3...

    Just make sure you pre-order it from GameStop so you get all the pieces.
