So "King of New York" standalone game can be mixed with the base game King of Tokyo? Or they are not compatible? I hope i can mix the monsters...
The monsters will be completely compatible (as they'll still use health and victory points), but nothing else, because the rules for the two games are quite different: different dice, different board, new mechanisms, etc.

Holy crap, really? When can we expect previews? I'm very intrigued.

We're currently working on making a decent prototype to show, but I wouldn't expect anything before 2014...
I'll try to reveal new rules and art as soon as they're final.

Will there be a board with more than one or two spaces on it? :-D

Yes.
As I wrote a few posts before:
Mattintheweb wrote:
1. Monsters will be able to move through different districts on the board.
2. The humans will definitely strike back!
3. The game should be a bit richer than KoT, but not much more complex.
The monsters not in Manhattan (i.e. the equivalent of Tokyo) will not be out of the board, but just in neighboring districts...

Cooool I see where this could be going - I wonder what bonuses / disadvantages occupying these different districts might bring.
Excited!

Now you did it, Matt: prepare to be harassed with questions on December 31st at midnight. They will tell you: "but you said we will know everything in 2014"???

Yeah, my New Year's resolution for 2014 is to stop using Internet, anyway...

I guess I'll just have to harass our development team so we have new things to show or tell, then...

Maybe they will have a version of the god awful American Godzilla lizard thingy? They would have to make it really terrible though to do justice to the source material. Maybe give it half the life of other monsters and require it to get double the points to win?

I hope one of the monsters is a fat ups driver called the king of queens.

Since the original set came out with 6 monsters all inspired by Japanese (and two American) monsters i think what they should do is:

50s style cyclops robot
a monster entirely made of energy
a giant blob monster
Giant fishman/sharkman
giant killer plant
a giant cyborg half monster half machine
a quadrupedal monster like the Rhedosaurus.

Granted i have other ideas too, like:

a giant Brain or Eye with tentacles
a city golem or even just a rock monster
a living statue of liberty is kinda cool but id rather destroy it. :)
a giant turtle
giant rats and giant sewer gators are both great ideas too.

I would have said a T-Rex for some Jurassic Park action, but it would be pretty similar to Gigazaur. Maybe an incredible Bulk? Or a robot that transforms between humanoid and vehicle? Or a robot made from five smaller robots that join together in the exact same sequence every game that takes two minutes of time.
