According to fan translations of a report from Nikkei, Nintendo will be developing a new title in the board game-styled Momotaro Dentetsu series of video games, set to launch next year. The property, which is currently owned by Konami, was originally created by future Mario Party developers Hudson Soft. Momotaro Dentetsu‘s gameplay has been described as similar to Monopoly or the traditional Japanese board game sugoroku. This is a surprise move from Nintendo, a company which hasn’t been known to develop with other companies’ properties. Many fans hope Konami might also license Hudson Soft’s classic Bomberman series to Nintendo.

Hi, I'm Alex. I'm a lifelong Nintendo fan and PC gamer. A few of my all-time favourite video games include The Legend of Zeldas: Twilight Princess and Majora's Mask, Mass Effect 2, Rayman 2, and most importantly, Xenoblade. If I ever catch you making a "really feeling it" joke in our comments, you can bet your ass I'll hide it, you casual scum. Feel free to send me a private message if you have something you'd like to discuss... or if you just want to say hi!
