We know that Hasbro is super into licensing cool brands for hybrid Monopoly (and we do love that Nintendo edition), but we never saw a Final Fantasy VII version of the game coming.

A preorder listing for the board game popped up on Merchoid this week with a release date of April 2017. The site says the game is a licensed offering from Hasbro. The Daily Dot has reached out to the company for confirmation.

“Delve into the evolving city of Midgar in search of the latest business opportunities. Perhaps you’ll buy up a string of plots for housing development for the people, or go industrial and build a Mako reactor plant,” the game’s description reads.

We have bigger questions. Firstly, is jail the Shinra Headquarters? Can we ride chocobos? Is there even an Aeris playing piece, and does Sephiroth kill it mid-game? 

We can’t wait to find out.
