Pop Culture Update: Sneak Peek at the New Character Screen! 👀
Hello Poptropicans! Pop HQ has been hustling and bustling lately! We have a few special projects in the works that we’ve been anxiously awaiting the green light to share with you! And finally, it’s go time.
Tomorrow (yes, TOMORROW), we are launching a brand new character screen!! 🎉 🎉
The new character screen will allow you to mix and match individual costume elements from any costume! The new character screen takes things to a whole other level. You can choose any of your costumes from your item inventory and select the desired features you’d like your Popsona to wear! Want to wear the hairstyle from one costume, a shirt from another, and the accessories from a third? Piece of cake.
But the best part might be the skin and hair modifier! Choose any color on the rainbow for your hair and skin colors! You can coordinate your Popsona’s look with your appearance irl or even to match your mood. Change your appearance at the pop of a hat and orchestrate a costume combination for any occasion!
Try the color selector on your pets as well! Pair your pet friends with their own adorable costume. Ever wonder what it'd be like to have a purple or neon yellow pet? They deserve to be pampered too.
Choices, choices, choices.
On a similar note, we’ve been seeing a lot of messages and comments asking about the old costumizer feature. The costumizer was removed because we were receiving many complaints about the feature. Older players had to spend the credits to purchase a costume or they may have had a discontinued outfit from the early days that is unavailable in the store. Meanwhile, a new player would be able to instantly copy and wear the same items from any older profile, sidestepping the other player’s efforts. Although the costumizer will not be returning to Poptropica, the upcoming unveiling of the new character screen enhances flexibility and creativity, while ensuring fairness to all players.
Keep an eye out for the launch of the new character screen TOMORROW, Poptropicans! As a reminder, June’s Monthly Costume Contest ends tonight at 8pm PST. Your costume design can be one of the first player costumes that can be customized with the character screen!
