Mario and Dragon Quest characters battle in the latest edition of the Monopoly-like board game.
First, Square-Enix combined Mario and Final Fantasy characters in Mario Hoops 3-on-3. Now, Mario and company will join Dragon Quest characters in Itadaki Street DS.
Itadaki Street is a long-running game series in Japan similar to Monopoly and created by Dragon Quest designer Yuji Horii. The two most recent editions of the game prior to the DS version featured Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest characters. This is the first Itadaki Street game on a Nintendo console since Itadaki Street 2 on Super Famicom.
So far, Mario, Luigi, Slime, and Jessica (Dragon Quest VIII) have been shown as playable. There is no word yet on release dates or release regions outside of Japan.
