Arcane Wonders and Arclight Games Collaborate to Bring 'ito' to English Markets Worldwide
English language debut from Arcane Wonders arriving in October 2024

Sachse, Texas (May 17, 2024)Arcane Wonders, a leading publisher of tabletop games, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Arclight Games to introduce the English version of ito, a wildly popular card-based party game from Japan, to gamers worldwide. This collaboration marks an exciting milestone in bringing engaging gaming experiences to enthusiasts everywhere.

ito has captured the hearts of more than 300,000 players in Japan with its blend of easy-to-learn gameplay and cooperative fun for the whole family. Now, thanks to the collaboration between Arcane Wonders and Arclight Games, gamers in the United States, Canada, and English-speaking markets around the world, will have the opportunity to enjoy the ito experience.

ito joins the prestigious Dice Tower Essentials line, curated by renowned board game reviewer Tom Vasel, who hand-selects games that he believes belong in every gamer's collection. This endorsement speaks volumes to the quality and enjoyment that ito offers to players of all ages and experience levels.

ito is a cooperative game where you and your friends each get your own secret number which you will then have to try to put in order. Each player gets a number card with a value between one and 100, and everyone works together as a group to do this based on the clues everyone gives in the chosen category. Remember, it's a SECRET, so of course you can't directly tell each other what number you have! 

The Arcane Wonders version will retain all of the great gameplay of the original and will add cards to randomize category selection

"We are incredibly excited to partner with Arclight Games to bring ito to a global audience," said Robert Geistlinger, President of Arcane Wonders. "We believe that ito perfectly embodies the spirit of the Dice Tower Essentials line of games. Its engaging gameplay and universal appeal make it a perfect addition to any gamer's collection."

ito is set to make its English debut in October 2024, inviting players to embark on a journey of laughter, strategy, and memorable moments. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements regarding the release of ito from Arcane Wonders and Arclight Games.
