Introducing: “Smash! Crackle! POP!”

Heeeeey Poptropicans! Big news ahead!

From pets to clubhouses to arcades, you’ve probably noticed that, these days, Poptropica has been trying to branch out beyond islands. And now, we’re excited to announce a brand new Poptropica gaming experience.

We’ve been working behind-the-scenes on a BIG project, and we’re finally ready to show you the details. Introducing…

“Smash! Crackle! POP!” is the fist-smashing, bone-crackling, enemy-popping fighting experience with all your favorite Poptropica characters thrown in. It’s like Poptropica meets Super Smash Bros. Or, it’s like the Legendary Swords battle arena we’ve all been waiting for. It’s going to be awesome. Are you ready??? Cue the sneak peeks

First, check out some of the fierce fighters, corralled from all over the Poptropica islands and illustrated by our very own Gentle Dolphin! Each one comes with a special item capable of great destruction—yes, even Ned Noodlehead and his unsuspecting hot dog.

  1. 8-bit Pilgrim (Early Poptropica)

Better yet, you can play as any of the PHB staff in the game, as we’ll each have our own fighter available as downloadable content. Get ready for Slanted Fish and her fighting fish, Sporty Boa and Rusty the cat (his assist trophy), Fierce Flyer and his ninja kicks, Spotted Dragon and her scimitar, Lucky Joker and his can of practical jokes, and Gentle Dolphin with a lovely set of bow and arrows. The team will be available as downloadable content (DLC)!

And of course, there are plenty of arenas to do battle in! Whether you’re ascending the steps of Mount Olympus, cowering in the nooks and crannies of Captain Crawfish’s Phoenix Warbird, or hopping about on the red bridge of the red dragon of Japan, you’ll get to fight your foes in epic scenery.

Sounding pretty cool yet? You don’t have long to wait—you’ll hear more about this very soon. For now, we’re looking at a release date of—oh, say, April 31. 😉

In the meantime, smash that like button, give those knuckles a good crackle, and pop on over to the comments to let us know what you think!

    Woah! This actually looks pretty coo- wait a minute…

    Though, I honestly want this to be a real thing, oh well.

    Can’t wait for snapping plant from Spy Island and crab from Time Tangled for DLC!

    Yo, this actually looks pretty dope. Any word on an open beta pre-release? My fists are ready for some smashing…

      • Shiny B1rd says:

        Bro, don’t forget that Director D needs to be nerfed. I heard that he has some special ability that you can spam where he uses his B.A.D Satellite to make his opponents go bald…

      • Shiny B1rd says:

        Oh, and lets hope that they don’t add the Red Baroness… That woman can seriously throw a wrench in your problems.

      • GreedyShadow says:

        “Red Baroness”

        I completely forgot that character exists.

        Well I guess that lady from Cryptids and E.vile have got some competition for Poptropica’s most forgetable antigonest.

  3. Shiny B1rd says:

    Am I the only one that immediately thought of those three guys from Rice Krispies cereal after reading the title?

  4. Quick Fang says:

    Why is everyone saying things like, ” I really wish this wasn’t a prank, ” and ” that? Not meaning to be rude, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that just because this was posted on April Fools’, it has to be a prank.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
