Hasbro Game Channel is the destination for family game entertainment on consoles with new ways to play your favorite classics such as Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit, Risk and more.

“We have worked closely with Ubisoft on the development of the Hasbro Game Channel, which will bring family and friends together for a fun and social gaming experience with their favorite brands,” said Mark Blecher, senior vice president of digital gaming and corporate development for Hasbro. “The new console games will allow players to connect and play with others, not just in their living rooms, but around the world.”

“We’re bringing Hasbro’s classic games to the digital age, capturing all the excitement and fun of these timeless games and building new ways to play them with the Hasbro Game Channel,” said Chris Early, vice president of digital publishing, Ubisoft. “The new console experiences will offer a brand new channel with both familiar and new gameplay modes, various missions, achievements and rewards for endless fun with friends and family.”

The first three brands available on the Hasbro Game Channel will be MONOPOLY, RISK and TRIVIAL PURSUIT, and will offer players a brand-new way to experience these classic brands.

MONOPOLY Plus – MONOPOLY Plus brings the world’s favorite family gaming brand to a new level with the original 2D MONOPOLY board as well as a colorful and lively animated 3D version that evolves as you progress in the game. MONOPOLY Plus lets players choose their favorite ‘House Rules’ to customize gameplay. Up to six players will be able to enjoy MONOPOLY Plus online or offline.

RISK – Strategy fans will venture into stimulating modern warfare combat with RISK. Keeping the authenticity of the 2010 rules as the standard, RISK offers a new strategic experience with a familiar map layout optimized with modern armies, 3D tactical battlefields, configurable win conditions and rule variants. Online league play will allow players to compete with people from around the world.

TRIVIAL PURSUIT Live! – Trivia fans can test their wits in this new take on the world’s most well-known trivia game. TRIVIAL PURSUIT Live! transforms the classic experience into a TV-show setting with reinvented question formats, customizable game lengths and a variety of game rounds and rules to keep players guessing.

Hasbro Game Channel and all three introductory titles will be available to download worldwide starting this fall.

Oh, good. Monopoly arguments.

*EDIT: Fucking title misspelling!

Could’ve been worse.

Did you mean to type Hasbro, or Hasborg?

Also, hasn’t the Hasbro family games thing been available on 360 for years?

Now if it was Risk: Legacy, they might have something.

One thing I’m not clear on is if this will have as much nudity as Uno on the Xbox 360.

Well this is awkward. Don’t EA have the licences to all the big Hasbro gamese on iOS? I’m kind of amazed they didn’t ensure to get all-platform licences.

I bought Risk: Legacy with the intention of playing with my friends. But they’re lame, so it is sitting, unopened, on my bookshelf. ::sad::
