Walkin’ down Fortune Street.
The Itadaki Street series isn’t exactly a popular title here in the States, but one of the entries did manage to make it over here in the form of Fortune Street, which arrived on the Wii and featured familiar Nintendo characters.
On the contrary, it’s a popular board game title in Japan, created by Dragon Quest designer Yuki Horii. There’s a new edition coming out in Japan, in fact, this October. Itadaki Street Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy 30th Anniversary is going to feature several character favorites from both series, and the newest trailer includes the likes of Squall from Final Fantasy VIII.
The games are a much more involved affair than Mario Party or the likes of those simpler titles, and there’s more to them than Monopoly, too. They’re an acquired taste, that’s for sure, and it’s likely that’s why we haven’t seen another title beyond Fortune Street’s Wii debut. Of course, with the Switch now all things are possible, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a new Fortune Street iteration on Nintendo’s new console in the coming months if this one sells well.
