I'm thinking of buying KoT soon, but I'm wondering about one thing: is Power Up compatible with the 2016 edition?

If not, did they announce an updated version of Power Up for the 2016 edition?

Well, since the Kracken and the Cyber Bunny have been removed and replaced with Cyber Kitty and Space Penguin the two versions are not totally compatible.

As for an update to Power Up, I haven't seen anything so far, but I would bet there is one in the works, as well as a updated King of New York later on too.

You're right about Power Up (the updated version should come sometime in 2017), but not about King of NY: Régis Torres is already the artist for this game, and the work he did on this game is one of the reason we asked him to redo every art in King of Tokyo.

Merci!

What about Halloween? I imagine the evolutions card don't get shuffled together, so it should be compatible with the new Power Up?

Except for the 12 Costumes (with the old card back), yes. And the art is also by Régis.

Just like to point out that the only issue is that the cards will have the wrong monster name at the top. Mechanically they will work perfectly fine, no issue.
So if you haven't bought Power Up yet, you may as well wait for the 2nd version. If you already have it, then no hurry.

Except for the fact that Space Penguin atleast is supposed to have his own unique evos.

There is still nothing preventing you from grabbing any stack of evolutions and using it with any monster.
The game has not changed. All of the 'old' evolutions will work perfectly fine with the new version.
There is nothing mechanically tying a specific monster to a specific stack in the first place.
Literally the only issue is that the name on some of the evolutions will not match the name of any monster board.

It still blows my mind that evolution cards were not included in KoNY and the 2nd edition of KoT.

So much of this headache could be avoided by having this game element be included within the purchased source of each monster.

But the games would have been more expensive, for a feature not everyone enjoys.

Will the 12 Costume cards be available for the new version?

That seals it for me. I was going to get the Halloween edition this year for the 2nd Edition, but I know I'll be annoyed if you subsequently release an updated version for the 2nd Ed KoT. Therefore, I'll wait.

Are there any plans for Cyber Kitty and Space Penguin to be sold separately, for people who already have KoT?

We're releasing a Cthulhu monster pack as a pseudo-replacement for Kraken in the beginning of 2017!
