Fortune Street (いただきストリート, Itadaki Sutorīto) (also known as Boom Street in PAL regions) is a party video game series originally created by Dragon Quest designer Yuji Horii. It is currently owned by Square Enix and Kadokawa. The first game was released in Japan on Nintendo’s Famicom console in 1991. Since then, new installments in the series have been released for the Super Famicom, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, Mobile Phones, Android, iOS, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The series was exclusive to Japan prior to the Wii iteration.
The series originated as a minigame within Dragon Quest III, and proved so popular it was decided that it should be released as an individual game. Horii in a 1989 interview stated he was working on a board game with former Famitsu editor Yoshimitsu Shiozaki and that working in a “completely different genre” to the Dragon Quest games was worthwhile. While creating the first stage, a play test revealed the board was really hard, so a practice stage was constructed and was also too difficult, leading to stage one eventually becoming stage four. In 2011, game creator Yuji Horii stated he had considered bringing Itadaki Street to international audiences.
