Let’s get right to it!
Apparently the Creators are going to be showing use a whole new world soon. *cough* Aladdin references aside, we seriously do have some news on New Poptropica! Finally!
Well, we already know that New Pop, or should I now say Poptropica Worlds, didn’t get released in 2016 of course, like it was first expected to be. However, we now have a new time frame to look forward to! While “Spring 2017” is fairly broad, at least it’s something. And generally speaking, when given a seasonal release date we can safely assume that the exact date is towards the beginning of said season, in this case Spring.
Apart from the release date, we can actually tell a lot from this video announcement! For one, the normal Poptropica art style we have come to know and love is just slightly different. It looks like we will be keeping the signature round head, eyes, and absent neck, but we will now have more detailed hands/arms and legs/feet!
In addition to these new looks, according to the Creators, we will have a ton of other new features to look forward to as well:
- New, exciting Worlds to explore
- Favorites from the original Poptropica, remastered for Poptropica Worlds
- One account for everything Poptropica!
- Your very own customizable home (remember this poll?)
- More costumes than ever
- Daily prizes and awesome games
- And more to come…
Since “only test dummies are allowed into Poptropica Worlds right now,” we will just be getting some sneak peeks of what’s going on behind the scenes until New Poptropica officially comes out!
In addition, keep an eye out on the Poptropica Help Chat (PHC) around 8:30-9:00 EST tonight – Jessica said that she will visit there around that time! (Check out our recap about her visit in this post, where she answers questions about Poptropica Worlds!)
I know that there has been a lot of suspicion circulating around this huge update, but based on this preview I say we keep an open mind for now. Who knows, this could be great! Heck, hopefully we might even get some more information on the entire Poptropica Universe and its backstory… 😀
