After months of silence from developer Ubisoft, there is sudden evidence to support an October 31 release of Monopoly for the Nintendo Switch.

As noticed by Twitter user CEOofGreatness, the listing for the popular board game turned video game has been updated on Target’s website to reflect an October 31 launch. While no official announcement for North America has been made, the title has already been confirmed to be launching on the hybrid console in Japan on November 9.
Since it’s initial reveal during a pre-E3 Nintendo Direct, not much information regarding Monopoly for Switch has been put forth. However, with the holidays and familial gatherings coming up, a late October date would make sense for Ubisoft to try and cash in on seasonal sales. The title was previously tabbed only with a “Fall 2017” launch window.
