Metallica look set to release a version of the Monopoly game based on the band next week.

In a post on their official site Metallica.com, the band cryptically uploaded an image of the cover of the forthcoming game with the simple message: "Next week!"

The cover features cartoon depictions of the band's current members. While no other information has yet been revealed, if the game follows in the footsteps of the previous Beatles Monopoly release then fans will compete against each other to build collections of the group's music and exchange trivia.



Fellow rockers Kiss previously released their own version of the classic board game entitled Kiss-opoly, which featured Kiss money, songs and playing cards.

Metallica will play the UK's Sonisphere Festival in July. To check the availability of Sonisphere tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
