Gaming Anniversaries January 15- Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise

Released January 15, 1993- Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise

Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise rolled into the Japanese market on this day in 93′!. For the Nintendo Famicom!

Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise is a board game adaptation of the Mega Man series.

The game takes cues from Monopoly. The game has players choosing which character they’d like to play as, either Dr. Wily, Dr. Right, Dr. Cossack, Kalinka, and Roll. The game can be played with four human players, or any variation of humans and computer players. In addition to choosing your character, players will also choose between one of four boards to play on. Each one is different in its own right.

Characters will play in order, rolling a digital die and moving to the space required. Upon landing on a space, you can choose to buy it. But there’s more when other characters land on that space, they have to pay you to rent, however, even though they don’t own the space, they can choose to build a lab on that space. When this happens, rent will then be split between the two players. When one character owns multiple spaces in a row or owns multiple labs in a row, the rent increases exponentially for other players.


Some boards also charge up the gameplay a little bit. They’ll add a “Robot Transform” feature to the board, which will turn your character into one of Dr. Wily’s robot masters. When this happens, the robot master can destroy labs and take over properties, so even if you own multiple properties and are winning, the game can turn around quick.

Additionally, there are cards drawn on lots that have special features. Such as the Air cards which send players flying. When this happens, you can only hope you have one that can stop the effect or else be brought back to start!

Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise definitely has a Mario Party vibe. Sadly, the game never made it to North America. To that end, we can always rely on translation teams. If you know where to look, you can try out the little Famicom gem for yourself right now!
