A couple months ago, the PHB posted about Poptropica for the Nintendo DS (see this post). And now, the Creators’ Blog finally lists the “Poptropica Adventures” DS game under Merchandise, which can be found on Amazon for $29.99 (USD)! 😀
Thanks goes to reader matthewergc, who notified us that more information regarding the upcoming game has been released. The game’s release date is November 6, 2012, which is in another two months! Ubisoft, the DS game’s publisher, also lists the following information and pictures:
Poptropica, the most popular virtual world for kids is coming to the Nintendo DS! In Poptropica Adventures, the Poptropica museum is in ruins and needs your help! Explore three amazing Islands and find missing artifacts to help restore the museum to its former glory. Meet interesting characters, collect artifacts, solve puzzles, and play mini-games in the ultimate on-the-go Poptropica experience! Looking to stand out in a crowd? Customize the look of your avatar with new clothes, hats, hair styles, and more to show off your unique Poptropica style!
- Explore an Amazing World – Run and jump through unique Islands based on dynamic themes. As you explore, find items that unlock new areas and open new gameplay challenges.
- Create a Character All Your Own – Customize the look of your avatar with new clothes, hats, hair styles and more! Progress in the game and you can replicate the clothes of characters you meet or find new clothing and items to create your own unique style.
- Build a Collection Like No Other – Find gadgets and items as you progress in the game and complete your quests. Use these items to open new areas and display them in your Poptropica Museum.
- Mini-Game Challenges – Complete the quests and unlock a host of mini-games that provide more challenges and variety.
Note that they mention 3 islands, and those seem to be (according to the screenshots) Mythology, Astro-Knights, and
a possible new adventure Spy Island (Poptropicaddict points out the top 3 characters on the game cover). Sounds exciting! Will you be getting this game? 🙂
