Hello Poptropicans! Two important posts from the Creators today, both pertaining to islands. Let’s pop in for a look!
As promised, here’s another hint for the upcoming 13 island releases on Steam: “I’m a sailor that’s neither living nor dead. I’ll transport you to the danger ahead. My role is restored; climb into my boat to collect your reward. Who am I?” (In case you missed it, check out yesterday’s hint here!)
This one can apply to multiple islands, considering the many sailor characters present among all the, well, islands. We’ve seen guesses ranging from Ghost Story Island (Valiant Lovejoy) to Skullduggery Island (sailing galore!).
But as Gentle Dolphin speculates, the one that seems fit most may be Mythology Island, with the hint possibly referring to Charon, the ferryman of the underworld (“neither living nor dead”) who takes you to Cerberus (“the danger ahead”).
While a remastered version of Mythology currently exists in the game, Charon’s River Styx minigame was one of the parts cut out from the controversial Haxe version. “My role is restored,” then, may be a hint for a return of the classic and popular Mythology Island.
Do you have any guesses as to which it could be? Fortunately, many future hints are promised, so we can continue guessing! We’ve seen Poptropicans on the lookout for space, carnivals, superheroes (and supervillains!), and many more. Stay tuned!
The other announcement is that Secret of the Jade Scarab Island is now on the map and will be available to all players “before you know it!” No current date is set, but it’s nice to see the long-awaited Dream Island winner at last, with our little kitty friend making another appearance! 😊

I second Gentle Dolphin’s guess for Mythology Island — a lot of the wording seems to fit. If it’s true, it’ll be nice to see the classic Mythology back… and maybe eventually on Haxe (current Pop) too? 👉👈
Whichever way it goes, these guessing games are fun! Cool to have a little challenge before we dive back into the bigger challenges of these older islands.
I haven’t checked in in a loooooong time since college started, but sounds like I missed a lot! Can’t wait to check out Jade Scarab in the next decade hopefully!
I was guessing Skullduggery island at first immediately but Gentle Dolphin here really knows her stuff when she remembered that Charon was nor living nor dead.
I really want it to be Ghost Story though. It’s unlikely but seeing that island back would be nice.
