Plus, guess the name of the monster

A new King of Tokyo game has been teased in a Board Game Geek posting from Iello.

In the BGG entry, the name of the game is simply King of ??? ??? with no picture, and only one extra piece of information:

King of ??? ???, ???????????????????????????????
??????????? ??????????????????????????????

Essen 2022

—description from the publisher

So we can expect the real launch of the game at Essen 2022 at least. We also know the game will still, of course, be designed by Richard Garfield.

And we have a new monster... as revealed in a forum post on the game entry. The company is asking fans to guess the name of the big be-shelled beastie.

Our guess is that this will be King of Tokyo Atlantis. Or maybe Bermuda?

This exciting news comes on the heels of a statement by Iello that they would be severing ties with the company's USA arm, Iello USA:

The company IELLO, distributor and publisher of board games based in Heillecourt, France, has decided to rethink the distribution of its products IELLO and LOKI in the United States and in Canada.

Consequently, IELLO, through its legal advisor, terminated the distribution agreement, effective December 31, 2021, which authorized IELLO USA to distribute IELLO products in the United States, ending any collaboration with Mr. Stephan Brissaud, COO of IELLO USA.
