Board game licensor and distributor USAopoly (maker of Super Mario Chess, among other things that I want) announced that it is accepting preorders for a Metal Gear Solid-themed version of Parker Brothers' strategic board game Risk.

"Private Military Companies have taken the place of state armies as the world's primary war machines," the game's description reads. "As the fires of war continue to spread, take command and wage the ultimate battle for supremacy.

"Hire one of eight legendary bosses to lead your soldiers, including Solid Snake, Raiden and Liquid Ocelot. Coordinate with arms dealers to gain tactical advantages over those who would oppose you. The age of deterrence is now the age of control. He who controls the battlefield, controls history."

Risk: Metal Gear Solid Limited Edition uses a variation on Risk's 2008 rules update, and includes over 290 custom game pieces. The game's production run is limited to 2,014 units, which will begin shipping in mid-November.
