Update: IT’S A WRAP! Check out our recap post!Continue reading “🏆 Poppies 2022: One Party, Seeking Your Votes ☑️”
Hello everyone, Fierce here with two updates: a clubhouse store update, and… the story of what really happened to Legendary Swords!
First, the clubhouse store was updated on Tuesday, featuring plenty of nice decor to add to your abode. There’s plenty of furniture this time around with 43 decorations, 13 of which are for members. Some highlights from this collection are the neon signs of a cactus and crescent moon, plus welcoming text signs, all sure to brighten up your clubhouse — figuratively and literally.
We’ve had quite the eventful month thus far, including a brand new Match 3 mini-game inspired by the classic Legendary Swords. Legendary Swords was a mini-quest released back in 2011, where your Poptropican was pitted against a race of robots led by the diabolical E. Vile. But, was this always the plan for this well-received adventure?
Veteran players may remember that, upon completing the mini-quest, a message would show up promising a Battle Arena coming soon. As time went on and this never materialized, the message eventually disappeared, even as the mini-quest stayed on.
Answers to this mystery recently came up in the Instagram comments on Poptropica’s post about Legendary Swords: Match 3. According to former Pop Creator James D. Lema (@jamesdlema, also known as Director D), Legendary Swords was originally supposed to be a 3-part series with aspects of being able to use swords from costumes purchased from the store. Sadly, after the Legendary Swords we all know and love was released, the team behind the project did not get the go-ahead to complete the entire series. Director D (Lema) wrote, “(It) broke my heart to not finish that story.” I don’t know about you all, but this too breaks my heart. Legendary Swords for me was such an adventurous and unique idea in the Poptropica world that completely worked, and having even more added to that would’ve been great.
That’s all as of now! Let us know in the comments what you think the other parts of Legendary Swords could’ve been like, had the team been greenlighted on the project. Also, don’t forget to mention which items you would personally include in your clubhouse.
Thanks for reading, and see you around, Poptropicans!
