Gamers can return to Midgar — but this time, it’s on a Monopoly board.

Final Fantasy VII Monopoly is set to be released on April 14, 2017, with pre-orders underway, video game merchandiser Merchoid announced this week.

The game will maintain the classic strategic business and property trading traits that Monopoly has pioneered since its original release. The version based on the popular fantasy video game franchise will feature locations, characters, and items from the seventh installment, adding another layer to Monopoly’s competitive gameplay. Cloud, Aerith, and Sephiroth will all make appearances, either through playable tokens or on cards in the game.

“Delve into the evolving city of Midgar in search of the latest business opportunities,” reads the description on Merchoid’s site. “Perhaps you’ll buy up a string of plots for housing development for the people, or go industrial and build a Mako reactor plant.”

Final Fantasy VII has been making headlines recently. Last year’s E3 expo saw the announcement of a remake for PS4. And the classic game will be released in the PS4 digital store this October.
