Wait, what? You didn't know there was a King of Tokyo facebook page? Well there you go: here it is!

This Saturday, we published our THIRD close-up, and of course, you recognized Pandakai, from the Power-up expansion of King of Tokyo.


Who is Pandakaï?

Lives in: a Chinese temple
Favourite dish: Bamboo, in all its forms
Particularity: Its martial initiation has made him a master of the smash!
Appears in: King of Tokyo – Power Up

Pandakai masters the wuxi fingerhold!

 All these years cloistered in that Chinese temple, practicing subtle martial art all day long, have not been in vain. He arrived as a little and innocent panda, and is now one of the best martial artists! He masters all kinds of holds and moves: pandamonium, panda express, pandarwinism, but his favourites are the ones related to Bamboo.

He sleeps in Bamboo trees, eats Bamboo, fights with Bamboo – his life is Bamboo.


His knowledge and powers are everyone’s

All these years’ lessons taught Pandakaï wisdom and that there was no better battle than a fair one.

That is why now that he is ready to go to battle and claim the city of Tokyo, he wants share his ancient knowledge with each and every one who is willing to fight.

Each monster from King of Tokyo will benefit from new powers! Before entering the fight, Pandakaï makes sure that everyone gets a unique set of evolution cards that will grant them special abilities and make their fighting styles unrivalled!

One Power-up card for Meka Dragon, one for Alienoïd, and one for Cyber Bunny…

In King of Tokyo Power-up, there is a set of evolution cards for every monster of King of Tokyo: Alienoïd, Meka Dragon, Gigazaur, Space Penguin, Cyber Kitty, the King and even Cyber Bunny and Kraken, from the first edition!

These evolution cards will grant permanent or temporary powers to your monsters. Battles will never be the same.


…But Pandakaï also thinks of monsters in New-York!

How generous of him! If you possess King of New York, you can make your monsters evolve and develop asymmetrical powers as well, for there is a Power-up expansion for King of New-York as well!
