You might not have asked for it, but it's coming. Square Enix's Final Fantasy VII is getting an official Monopoly board game adaptation.

Included in the package is a board, token, deed cards, houses, and hotels, all of which are themed around the 1997 role-playing game.

Here is the official description, as posted on the Merchoid website (via Kotaku): "Delve into the evolving city of Midgar in search of the latest business opportunities. Perhaps you’ll buy up a string of plots for housing development for the people, or go industrial and build a Mako reactor plant.

"Trade with fellow players to secure key location and facilities and watch as savvy buyers secure a big pay day. A roll of a dice and a shrewd business mind will pave your way to success… Just watch out in case Shin-ra bring your empire crashing down!"

The board game's product page also reveals it will cost $50. A ship date of April 14, 2017 is listed, though this could change.

Final Fantasy is not the first video game franchise to get its own unique version of Monopoly. Others include Super Mario, Pokemon, World of Warcraft, and Street Fighter.
