Mario and his crew meet Dragon Quest characters for a "greed is good" game of property management, in the North American debut of Fortune Street. Something like a Mushroom Kingdom version of Monopoly, Fortune Street sends players around a virtual game board, to purchase profitable spaces and collect payments from opponents who land on them in the future. Characters can also collect suits, which can be turned in for more money. Up to three players can compete on the same system with a single Wii Remote, and online games are supported over a Wi-Fi connection.
Gamers can play as their own Miis, or as one of more than 20 Square-Enix and Mushroom Kingdom characters, including Stella, Platypunk, and a Slime, as well as Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi. Multiple themed game boards are available, based on memorable levels from past Dragon Quest and Mario games. Various options allow players to set up simple games for beginners, or more sophisticated contests requiring deeper strategies. An in-game stock market allows capitalist contestants to invest their extra funds for a chance at even more cash. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
