Hello there fellow readers, Fierce Flyer here, or shall I say, Detective Fierce!
So, as you’ve probably noticed, Poptropica Worlds has been rather inactive lately—the last update was two months ago! However, we do know the Creators have been working on a new Island…
Just one thing: exactly what Island is coming out? Join me on this investigation, and let’s predict the next Island to be released on Poptropica Worlds!
Back in October 2017, the Poptropica Creators’ Twitter gave us this sneak peek on a new Island that will serve as our first lead in this investigation:
This can be a number of things right off the bat, though my immediate instinct is Mythology Island. Other possibilities could be: Time Tangled Island (could be back in time), an awesomely renovated Realms (though unlikely) or maybe even an entirely different Island.
But maybe they’ve canceled it or been working on something else since then? We haven’t heard much else. Though this recent tweet, and the one above, might offer hope:
Let’s try to figure out what big things are happening…
Nothing of interest here—they haven’t posted on Facebook since Dec. 18, 2017.
Creators’ Blog Case
Surprisingly enough, looking over at the Poptropica Creators’ Blog, I discovered some pretty interesting stuff that might give me the clues for cracking this mystery. As I was scrolling through past posts, I stumbled upon a post about Cryptids Island from August. The post itself was quite random, having no updates and serving as more of a filler.
Recalling a memory in the back of my mind about when the post was made, I checked Twitter again. There, I found a string of tweets from the Creators promoting other Islands from Original Poptropica. These were, in order: Nabooti, Mythology, Arabian Nights, Cryptids, and Time Tangled Island.
However, these tweets (all tagged with #FridayFacts) were just for fun and didn’t offer any insights on new updates.
Eureka! Earlier today, the Creators posted a brand new sneak peek on their Instagram. Along with the Twitter image above, and the evidence gathered, I believe we can make a pretty good guess as to what the next Island will be…
Posted with the caption “Ascend to the throne!”, this may be the last true piece of evidence for making a prediction. Time Tangled Island? I think not. If you take a closer look at the the chair, you can see the framing made of glowing lightning bolts. The scenery colors also look very familiar to a boss battle scene from the Original Pop. I think I just might know what Island this could be…
What Island: Mythology Island!
When: Sometime in February or March!
From the clues, it’s clear as day that Mythology is the next and newest Island to be released on Poptropica Worlds, and it’ll be here soon! And, like the new 24 Carrot Island released several months ago, it’ll likely be a remastered version coming to Worlds.
Judging from those recent tweets and how awesome it looks, I’d say it appears to be near finished. Big news was on its way this month according to Twitter, so if all goes according to plan, it should be here sometime February, or at least by March!
For all you Poptropicans eagerly waiting to complete another Island, the skies are looking bright, or shall I say… stormy! You know, because of Zeus’s lightning bolts… stormy skies… okay, I’ll stop. Let me know what you think in the comments!
