Retro 8-bit Super Mario Bros. Monopoly looks amazing and is now available

Sure it seems like there is a themed version for Monopoly for every license available these days. We have gotten several Nintendo-themed Monopoly variants over the years and a Legend of Zelda release as well.  Today I am actually quite surprised to see a Monopoly game based on the original Super Mario Bros. in so much detail.  The game seems to bare little resemblance to the original board, and has a beautiful retro theme.  The tokens look awesome as well, featuring Mario, Luigi, Toad, and Princess Toadstool in all of their 8-bit glory. Being a huge retro gamer, this is the right was to utilize this retro license and art work. I love how all of the spaces are filled in with the appropriate backgrounds, and there is none of the original board game's background.  I also think it's cool that the end flag poles replace the houses, and the castles replace the hotels.  Overall it looks to be a really nice collector's piece, hopefully we can get our hands on one for a review and a play through video. Something tells me these won't be on shelves long.
