From what we could gather scratching around:

- It will be out Q1 2017 in Italy, no news about an english version
- It will contain base game, expansion and a new sixth expansion not present before.
- Said expansion will be available separately later, but the graphics will probaly clash with the older version(different art)

Thanks for sharing! I really appreciate it. I'd be surprised if they didn't come out with an English version. Thanks again!

It states an English version on their website to be coming soon.
The reaction of the graphical overhaul seems to be overwhelmingly negative.
Perhaps this is just a quick money grab. They could definitely go with some PR/marketing efforts to show off its virtues.

The crappy thing is if the 1st ed, which is prettier, is not going to be printed anymore, then it's going to be costlier to get into.

Yup, but fret not, there is an english version actually announced.

I really think I should call them and ask where they are, but I fear right now they are in the middle of the Chinese New Year.

As mentioned at the very end of this video. Specific mention of Italian and German, but no specific English news yet.

Since you apparently did not see this, here is the relevant part:
Luke the Flaming wrote:
The rights to publish the game and the rights to use the old artwork belong to different people. They did not reach an agreement.
The publisher thus had two options: no reprint or new artwork.
It it NOT intended as an "improvement" (I love the old artwork as well), but as a necessity to avoid OOP status forever.

If you already own the game, no one is trying to convince you to buy it again (in fact, we insisted to have a "6th module only" option to underline that you do not need to buy it all again).
This new edition is intended for people that do not own the game yet (but would like to).
Does not seem to be "a quick money grab".

I would think that you could use the original board/dice and just swap out the player sheets since looking at my original game and the pic on zman games they are laid out the same with little differences like numbers for the seasons for example. So what it comes down to is if you have both games you can mix and match as you want.

Miniature Market, at least for one, is taking pre-orders.
