Hit the lights, 'cause we're about to do some damaging incorporation: Bay Area metal megalith Metallica is following the likes of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and, uh, Kiss next week and releasing its own Monopoly board game.
The game was cryptically announced today in a posting on Metallica's official online store, with a photo of the game cover above the text "Next Week!" That's all we know for sure so far. The cover features cartoon renditions of the band members, which look, well, amusing, plus lots and lots of cartoon hands making devil horns.
If it's like previous band Monopoly games, the entire board, money, and game pieces will be recast with names and iconography from Metallica's vast lore. We're hoping for a coiled snake (from the Black Album cover) and Pushead skull game pieces, lots of references to various garages, and some sort of Cliff Burton reference. But we'll just have to wait until June 13.
