Fortune Street (known as Boom Street in Europe and Australia) is a Wii game developed by Square Enix. It is a follow-up to the Nintendo DS game Itadaki Street DS and is the first Itadaki Street title that was released outside of Japan.

Gameplay[edit]

Four players (excluding the play system in Tutorial mode, where only three characters play) take turns by rolling dice to go around the board and buy shops. Some squares involve special attributes, such as Take-a-break squares (when a character lands there, all of his or her shops will close until the player's next turn) and Venture squares (like a Chance space in Monopoly). Players also have the ability to invest money in their own shops when they land on them. Scattered around the board are four suits (Heart, Club, Diamond, and Spade); if the player collects all of them and returns to the Bank (also the starting space) they get a promotion. When a player gets a promotion, they get money for their salary, a shop bonus which is based off of how much their shops are worth, and how many they own, as well as a promotional bonus (extra money given to the player that increases as they level up). The player's level also goes up when they get a promotion.

The player wins by increasing their net worth to at least the target amount and returning to the bank first. Net worth is the total combined amount of ready cash and value in stocks and shops, and can be increased by having other players land on their shops and buying multiple shops in an area or investing in stocks and owned shops to increase the stock price. If the player runs out of ready cash at any point, they must sell either stocks or a shop to try and get out of debt; any shops sold for cash are auctioned. If the player's net worth goes below zero, then they go bankrupt; all their assets are sold off if any remain and they are automatically eliminated from the game. The player with the highest net worth automatically wins if the bankruptcy limit is met.

There are two different ways to play: the Easy rules and the Standard rules.

Standard Rules[edit]

In the Standard rules, the board is divided into several color-coded districts and includes a stock market. If the player has more than one shop in a district, both shops expand, meaning the shop's value, prices, and max capital (the amount of money that can be invested into a shop) will all increase. Owning all the shops in a district results in a monopoly, which greatly expands all the shops in that district.

Stocks can be purchased at the bank or a stockbroker square, but only 99 can be bought in one district at one given time; despite that, stocks can be sold at any time before a player's turn. Stocks can increase or decrease in value at any time. An increase of shop values or a large purchase of stock at one time will increase the stock value in that district. Contrariwise, a decrease of shop values or a large sale of stock at one time will decrease the stock value in that district. Like shops, stocks are assets, and therefore, they will not decrease net worth when purchased. When stocks increase or decrease in value, only the player's net worth will be affected. This is dependent on two factors: how many stocks owned in that district, and by how much the stock value fluctuates. For example, if a district's stock value increases by 5G, a player who owns 200 stocks in that same district will gain a 1000G bonus in net worth.

Exclusive to Standard rules are vacant plots. These spaces allow a player to build upon the land. A vacant plot can be changed, or 'renovated', at any time before the player rolls the dice block. The following buildings can be built on vacant plots:

  • Checkpoint - Any opponent who passes or lands on this space has to pay the indicated toll; afterwards the toll increases by 10G per pass; if the player who owns the checkpoint lands on this space, they can invest in any other shop they own.
  • Circus Tent - Any opponent who lands on this space has to pay the indicated price; if the tent owner lands on this space, they can expand the circus like a shop (Starts with a price of 100G, and after expanding (3 times MAX) it goes to 500G, 1000G and 2000G).
  • Balloonport - Any opponent who lands on this space has to pay the indicated price; if the port owner lands on this space, they can travel to any space at no charge.
  • Tax office - Any opponent who lands on this space has to pay 10% of their net worth; if the office owner lands on this space, they gain a 5% net worth bonus .
  • Home - Any opponent who lands on this space has to pay the indicated price; if the home owner lands on this space, every other player is forced to congregate at that space.
  • Estate Agency - This acts like a 'take a break' space to any opponent who lands on this space; if the agency owner lands on this space, they can buy any unowned shop as long as at least one shop is unpurchased.
  • Three-Star Shop - The player can build a shop with a starting value of 1000G; this acts like any other shop space until it is renovated

Three-Star Shops cost 1000G to build; everything else costs 200G. A surcharge of 150G is imposed to renovate an existing building.

Easy Rules[edit]

In Easy rules, there are no stocks, no vacant plots, and no districts, making the game more accessible for new players. To expand shops further, the player will have to buy shops in a row. The row's maximum potential length depends on its location on the board since suit squares, venture squares, the arcade, and the bank divide certain sections of the board.

Squares[edit]

  • Shops - The most common squares, these are the main focus of Fortune Street. A shop can be purchased as long as the player has enough assets (i.e. ready cash, stocks, etc.) in possession. Purchasing or investing in a shop doesn't decrease net worth, but it costs ready cash to do so.
  • Venture - This square allows a player to choose a card from a random selection of 64 cards. There are 128 cards in total, but some are exclusive to Standard rules.
  • Suit - These squares hold one of the four suits. If a player lands directly on it, it acts like a Venture square.
  • Changing Suit - This is just like a Suit space, except it cycles through all four suits as players pass it.
  • Backstreet - Either a warp space or a Warp Pipe, these squares take the player to the connecting square of the same colour.
  • Take-a-break - This square makes the player's shops close for one turn.
  • Vacant Plot - Exclusive to Standard rules, these squares allow a player to build upon the land. In Standard rules Free Play, the amount of vacant plots can be set in the custom rules in multiplayer only.
  • One-Way Doors - In boards like Robbin' Hood Ruins and Bowser's Castle, these doors take the player to a different part of the board.
  • Boon - Allows the player to receive a 20% commission on all profits made until their next turn.
  • Boom - Allows the player to receive a 50% commission on all profits made until their next turn.
  • Arcade - This square allows the player to play a minigame.
  • Bank - Players who passes the bank can buy stocks in any district. If a player passes by the bank square with all four Suits, they receive a promotion.
  • Cannon - Only appears on some boards; allows the player to be blasted to any other player's location.
  • Roll-on - Allows the player to roll again.
  • Stockbroker - Similar to the bank (except that it must be landed on), allows the player to buy stocks in any district.

Characters[edit]

All twenty-five characters from Itadaki Street DS return, with the addition of four new characters for a grand total of twenty-nine. Players can also use and customize their Miis in the game.

Miis are the only playable characters in single-player mode. In multiplayer, players can only choose between the Mario and Dragon Quest characters as well. Each computer character is ranked from S, A, B, C, D in terms of difficulty (S being the highest, and D being the lowest) which means each computer character has a predetermined difficulty. If the player beats either all the Easy Tour boards or all the Standard Tour boards, they will have the ability to switch the computers' difficulty from S rank to their normal rank.

Minigames[edit]

  • Round The Blocks – This is essentially a game of slots. The player can get three 7s in a row and get 500 gold coins (the game's currency, shortened as gold or simply g ) times their level, get three warp pipes or wings (depending on the board, Mario or Dragon Quest) in a row to warp, three stock icons to get a set amount of stocks in one district if playing standard mode, three Suit Yourself Cards (these are like wild cards; they can act as any suit the player does not have. Owning one Suit Yourself Card means the player could only collect three suits and still get promoted) in a row to get one of the afore-mentioned cards, or get 3 mushrooms or Slimes (depending on the board) to get 50g times the players level.
  • Memory Block – The player chooses from a number of boxes to get either a 1-Up mushroom which makes all of their shops increase by 10%, a card with a coin which gives the player 10G multiplied by their level, a Suit Yourself Card, 5 stocks in a district, or a card with Bowser's face on it which makes all of their shops decrease by 5%.
  • Dart of Gold – The player throws a dart at a wheel that has different items that can help or hurt players. Once the player throws the dart and hits an item (a treasure chest containing 100G times a player's level, a gold coin worth 10G times a player's level, three gold coin worth 30G times a player's level, stocks, and a Suit Yourself Card), throw another dart at a different wheel that has all the player's faces on it, as well as a space that has everyone's faces on it. If the dart hits one player's space then they get the prize/punishment but if the dart hits the space with all the faces, then everyone gets the prize/punishment.
  • Slurpodrome – Players chose different colored Slimes to see which one will make it to the end first. Along the way, the treasure chest will open and reveal one of many things: a gold coin worth 20G, a Mimic which knocks the Slime out of the race, a Munchie which does nothing to affect the race, or a seed of agility which increases the Slime's speed. Sometimes, Rockbombs will roll onto the track and knock a Slime out of the race. Whoever gets to the end first wins the most money (100G times the level of the starting player plus any coins they collect), however since players collect coins along they way, all players will get some money (depending on the number of chests hit)
