The latest in Hudson's long-lived Momotaro Dentetsu (Momotaro Railroad) series of travel-themed board games features similar components as its predecessors: locations based on Japanese geography, Monopoly-style property acquisition gameplay, and a familiar (to Japan) cast of wacky characters loosely based on the traditional Japanese Momotaro story (but with more trains).

But Momotaro Dentetsu 20th Anniversary also brings a significant new aspect to the series: online play. Taking the beloved board game and putting it online is a great way to celebrate a milestone! The new game will be out in Japan this December, and, given the history of the series, we're pretty sure that's where it will stay.
