I was under the impression that there is a new expansion due out in October (Jack the Ripper themed), and that sometime after that there would be a reprint of SHCD with new, matching artwork in 2017. I asked the below question on the Ystari website: Will the reprint of the original SHCD with the new artwork be released before or after the Jack the Ripper expansion?

"Do I need to play the original SHCD before diving into the Jack the Ripper expansion due out in October? I want to get both but with the same artwork, thanks!"

Their response:
Hi,
After the release of the “Jack box”; you can start with that box, of course. To get the 3 boxes with the same artwork, buy that box then wait for the others in 2017. Thanks.

My question now is what is the 3rd box? I feel like I am really missing something and have been patiently waiting for the right moment to jump into this game, but my OCD is going to hate not having the updated artwork on all items.

I think all your questions are answered on my other thread here.

It's awesome that our French-speaking community here on BGG has been able to translate the news (thanks, Emmanuel B), but I feel like this whole confusing release schedule could have been clarified ages ago by a simple English language announcement from Ystari/Space Cowboys.

Isn't it weird that there's been only crumbs of news from the publisher, sometimes vaguely or contraditorily worded, mostly received in the comment section of the Ystari website, when these are shiny new releases in a successful product line with many existing fans?
