As the Nintendo Switch was gearing up to launch back in March, fans worried that it would go the way of the big N's prior consoles: Spectacular first-party games with minimal third-party support. But after a tenuous few months when Zelda: Breath of the Wild seemed like the only thing worth playing, the floodgates have opened. Titles of all stripes are coming to the console, from Doom to Shin Megami Tensei V -- and so, it seems, has Monopoly.

Ubisoft has brought Hasbro's iconic(ly frustrating) board game to Nintendo's platform, and there's sure to be a Switch-owning family that would enjoy recreationally bankrupting each other. Up to six players can load up a game on-or-offline, and there are a trio of themed boards to liven up the proceedings. There's also six 'House Rules' (assumedly including the 'Free Parking' unofficial rule) and a few additions that aim to speed up the game. If you like recreating property ownership's cruel twists of fate or need the most family-friendly game out there, Monopoly on the Switch could be your ticket.
