PAWTUCKET – Under a new partnership between Hasbro Inc. and Ubisoft, a number of classic board games will make their way to the console gaming world, the companies announced Wednesday.

The collaboration between the longtime game manufacturer and the Parisian-based producer of interactive entertainment products means that Ubisoft will create console games based on popular brands like Monopoly, Scrabble, Battleship, Risk, Trivial Pursuit and Cranium.

The partnership will “offer consumers innovative new ways to experience their favorite gaming brands,” said Mark Blecher, Hasbro senior vice president and general manager, digital gaming and corporate development, in a statement.

“Hasbro makes games that we all know and love, and we’re thrilled to be able to work with them to create video game experiences based on some of their most popular brands,” Tony Key, Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft, said in a statement.

The console games will include current and next-generation editions. Scrabble console games will be available only in the United States and Canada.
