Video game franchises "Space Invaders," "Plants vs. Zombies," "World of Warcraft" and "Pac-Man" are in for a makeover as Hasbro subsiduary USAopoly announced new versions of popular brands such as Monopoly, Risk and Trivial Pursuit.
"Plants vs. Zombies" is to receive a board game transplant
Planned for release later in 2013, "Monopoly: Skylanders," "Yahtzee: Pac-Man," and "Jenga: Space Invaders" are scheduled for summer arrival, while "Risk: Plants vs. Zombies," "Risk: Mass Effect," and "Trivial Pursuit: World of Warcraft" are intended for fall.
The conversions join USAopoly joints "Jenga Donkey Kong" and "Monopoly: Nintendo" as well as more literal interpretations of "Civilization," "StarCraft," "Pac-Man," and "Tomb Raider," as well as a free version of space survival game "M.U.L.E." called "L.L.A.M.A."
