Whoa! WHOA! Hold the phone! Digital board games!? What kind of world do we live in!? Apparently one that has Hasbro teaming up with Ubisoft to bring a medley of our classic analogue favourites into the digital world with all new updates and features! Needless to say, I am totally cool with this!
The games will be available through the newly announced Hasbro Channel (which will be featured on XBL for Xbox 360/Xbox One and PSN for PlayStation 3/PlayStation 4) and will launch with revamped spins on the classics Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit and Risk.
“We have worked closely with Ubisoft on the development of the Hasbro Game Channel which will bring family and friends together for a fun and social gaming experience with their favorite brands,” said Mark Blecher, senior vice president of digital gaming and corporate development for Hasbro. “The new console games will allow players to connect and play with others, not just in their living rooms, but around the world.”
