It’s true: Nintendo has granted board-game/pop-culture mash-up artists USAopoly — the same company behind the frankly kind of wicked Donkey Kong Jenga and Nintendo-themed Monopoly — the rights to produce a Super Mario Bros version of chess.
Which is nice, particularly if it helps ease the youths into the game, but I’m still puzzling over how the designers came to their character assigning conclusions. Luigi as Mario’s queen over Peach herself? Granted, she is just a princess (and needed that Princess Daisy counterpart), but.. Luigi? And no one could think of a better mate for Bowser than his own son?
Maybe I’m approaching this too literally. Kudos, though, for the cute pawn selections on both ends.
