Street Fighter edition of Monopoly revealed

In the relatively recent past we've gotten iterations of Monopoly based on World of Warcraft and Nintendo and now Monopoly's influence is being stretched ever further into the gaming industry as a Street Fighter edition has beenannounced (opens in new tab).

You can take a look at the entire game board here (opens in new tab) which has properties jointly based on characters and the stages they inspire. The pieces - which are really 3/4 of the point of playing Monopoly - will be Chun Li's bracelet, Vega' mask, a hadouken fireball, Bison, Ryu, and Zangief's shorts. We were kind of hoping for Zangief's thigh hair, but whatever.

This iteration of the old-as-dirt board game will cost $39.99. No word on whether or not this version of Monopoly will fix the painfully boring process of playing Monopoly.
