How’s it going, Poptropicans—it’s Lucky Joker here! Let’s pop into the latest news.
Over on Poptropica’s Instagram (@poptropicacreators), which seems to be the primary source of Poptropica news these days, we’ve got a bit of a “sneak peek” (if you want to call it that 😛 ) regarding the Blast-Off Arcade:
As the Creators’ post says, new chat features are coming to the arcade! That’s pretty cool. (Too bad it isn’t an island… it’s kind of been a while…) I wonder what the “gazillion other new things” they mention in the caption will be? Hmmm.
That’s not all. There are also a couple of new advertisements. Let’s start off with the LEGO Minecraft one, which can be found on Home Island.
The goal of the game is to escape the Creepers by dodging obstacles with the click of your mouse—without losing your six lives. (Tip: click multiple times for a higher jump)
Once you successfully make it to the finish, you’ll earn a batty Bat Follower and a Crazy Minecart. Cool!
For the next ad, Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns, you can access it via the island map. There’s no game for this one; all you have to do is watch the short video trailer to earn a Kite Power card. The movie premieres in theaters on December 19. 🙂
Well, that’s it for now! What do you think the new chat options will be like? Are you going to see the new Mary Poppins movie? Let us know down in the comments!
Thanks for reading as always, and I’ll talk to you all soon… pop on!
