Roblox is one of the most popular video games among kids, so it’s no surprise that the Roblox Corporation is partnering with Hasbro to create officially licensed Nerf blasters, as well as a Monopoly set. Though to be fair, everyone gets a Monopoly theme at some point.
Each Nerf gun is based on a famous game from Roblox, including Arsenal, Jailbreak, Mad City, and Phantom Forces. The blasters also include a code that gamers can use in Roblox to redeem a virtual version of the blaster to equip on their avatar. Nerf will also be launching its own Nerf-branded experience on Roblox later this year.
The Monopoly: Roblox 2022 Edition board game replaces the real estate spaces with Roblox games and experiences, such as Adopt Me and Welcome to Bloxburg. Artwork and themes have been redesigned to look and feel like the online video game. Monopoly Roblox edition supports two to six players and has a recommended age of eight and up.
“We are thrilled to bring Nerf Nation and the Roblox community together for the first time with an incredible line of blasters we know they will be clamoring to get their hands on,” said Adam Kleinman, Vice President, Nerf Global Marketing. “Our design teams have done a phenomenal job capturing the creativity and essence of Roblox creators and their most immersive, innovative Roblox games in Nerf blaster form and we can’t wait to deliver these new items to Roblox fans around the world!”
Monopoly: Roblox 2022 Edition has an approximate release of August 1, while the Roblox Nerf blasters are due to release later this fall.
