Poptropica Friends

Poptropica will be releasing a new feature soon called Poptropica Friends. They haven’t provided very many details, but the basics are that you will be able to maintain a friends list of people that you meet or know in the game. You can add them as friends, share costumes and something they’re calling “game photos.”

You can share costumes and see profiles of your friends in the game. There’s also something called “personality pieces” which you get by answering quizzes each day. It looks really interesting. They did not announce when it will be available but there is a trailer video about the new feature here:

No matter how it works, being able to maintain a friends list in Poptropica will add a lot to the game and definitely make it more fun to hang out.

I noticed that the video was uploaded to YouTube over a month ago: March 7, 2012 but just went “live” today. So this is something that Poptropica has been planning for a long time but for whatever reason wasn’t ready to announce until now.

There is already a Friends feature on the top toolbar, but it is limited to adding a multiverse code. Based on sneak peeks and screenshots we’ve seen, it looks like this will be replaced with a new avatar icon and will have a lot more features.

  58. Zippy crab, if you wanna be my friend when this comes out, bluebunn55.

  59. for crying out loud its just a username

  60. Yeah i looked at it in the avatar studio and its just a guy named Monster Carnival

  61. silver moon i remember all the comments u used to make a LONG time ago! XD
    Hi Eva

  62. Oh, and yeah GUYS DID U NOTICE THAT WHEN THE PERSON IN THE VIDEO AT 0:14 WAS WRITING THEIR USERNAME, they wrote MonsterCarnival2012!!!!!
    OMG ITS A SIGN!!! monster carnival island is coming back!

  63. I do what about me!

  64. Disregard that last statement 🙂

  65. Silver Moon, yeah I remember you sorta. So Monster Carnival Eh….2012 sure wish I was psychic. Hey Angry Ghost,.

  66. THIS IS AWSOME

  67. Ah, were getting Monster Carnival this year, hope it’s good.

  68. Hey night longer wats up

  69. I woke up at 3:00 today because I went to sleep last night at 2:00 XD

  70. eva the 8 year old kid

    hey peeps

  71. eva the 8 year old kid

    its just a username

  72. it asome i wish 🙁

  73. There could be Possibilities, I mean like why did the creators type in that name. Remember last time when they mentioned that monster carnival was gonna come out, but it never did so maybe the purpose of them showing us that name might be a sign of the new island. A remake.

  74. If you ask me, when you pick out your poptropican name, you don’t come up with a choice of ‘carnival’. It’s always something like ‘speedy turtle’ or ‘zippy feather’. So, the poptropican with the username of ‘Monster Carnival’ was most likely created by the Poptropica creators. Therefor, it is most probably a hint at Monster Carnival island. Gosh, some people here deny everything. The way I think of things, everything has it’s own purpose.

  75. I wonder what’s the next island going to be.

  76. cant wait till poptropica friends come’s out

  77. Slippery Icicle

    We have to be getting Monster Carnival soon, why else would they have the username MonsterCarnvial2012? I don’t think it’s random.

  78. hey i definetly think when the creators put monster carnival 2012 it was a hint to tell us that its coming out in 2012 can somebody add me me my poptropican is iceyrock 🙂

  79. If the friends thing come out, u can type liz9517 to add me as a friend.

  80. Everdeen, ur like a mind reader— I WAS THINKING THE SAMETHING!
    yeah tough lizard, it IS a sign.

    Angry Ghost, before i became a comment-er, i used to read all the comments and i still remember you!!!

  81. Yeah..i went to sleep at 12pm last night and got up 12am 😀

  82. Hey silver moon I remember u, wow this talk about talk about Monster Carnival Island is getting pretty popular. I’m gonna try to email poptropica or Jeff Kinney and try to get an answer

    P.S. Ryuzaki isn’t ur birthday on Easter?

  83. Good eye,I respect that

  84. Not always Drake,My birthday is always on the 4th of April,last year and on the year of my birth easter and my birthday did place on the same day,but not this year

  85. KATNISS!!! C: LOVE THE NAME.
    @RedWing: Yes, people say I have that effect 😀

  86. I all ready e-mailed poptropica , but no reply yet 🙁

  87. anyone want to meet up with me? meet me in room atz53 until 6:00

  88. Brave Bean:
    Yeah, they’ve been mentioning Monster Carnival alot!

  89. Drake:
    Poptropica actually doesn’t reply to e-mails :(.

  90. BTW, didn’t I mention the username thing earlier? Don’t get me wrong, I’m just as excited as the rest of you, if not more, for MONSTER CARNIVAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    🙂

  91. poptropfan:
    Yeah, I saw Meapless in Seattle, too. And now they’re going to make a third episode of it!

  92. Hey, if any has ideas for Poptropica, you can tell them here:
    http://www.poptropica.com/contact/contact-players.html
    I sent them some ideas, and I think that might be why they came up with Vampire’s Curse (but I’m not sure). They can come up with great islands from your ideas, so send them in. Some people kept saying that they wanted Monster carnival back, and now it’s here!

  93. everdeen hi did you see the movie on opening day?i did

  94. how do you know monster carnival is here???…

  95. Tiny Tornado:
    I think Monster Carnival is here because they’ve mentioned it alot lately: in the April Fools post, in “The Wayback Machine”, and now in this video. People have been asking to see this island for a while, so we think it’s coming now, after all these clues!

  96. Wait a sec….Brave Star, where did it mention Monster Carnival Island in the April Fools Day Post??? ;(

  97. Oh and it cant be the island AFTER Twisted Thicket, because that Olympics-themed island is coming i think….look at the sneek peaks and you’ll know what im talking about. Twisted Thicket would be coming after that, if it even is!!! (which i hope so)

  98. Hey have you guys looked at the daily pop

  99. No Tough Lizard, not recently…….why?

  100. Oh! katniss!!! I saw the movie the day it came out in theaters!!
    Epicness………
    Violent………..
    Romantic………
    Funny at some parts………..
    Epic………..
    Epic……………
    EPIC!!!!!!!!

  101. Oh, and Brave Star, that link was VERY helpful! ;D

  102. Its because I think the battle arena from legendary swords is coming

  103. Yuppp I saw it opening day toooo c:
    Here’s the thing: it was a pretty good movie, but not one of my favorites. I mean, I still like the series better. But, it was pretty good 🙂

  104. Hey guys haven’t been on in awhile yeah I watched the movie 2!!! Friday, i thought it was pretty good.

  105. Ps. Hunger games might becoming 2 poptropica because i talked with 1 of Jeff kinneys kids and they said they were trying 2 get him 2 put an island of it. Also if u seen the sneak peeks on pop, it’s looks just like a tracker jacker & says this is 1 iconic looking insect, and they battle thing I think Is the hunger games 2

  106. Once again, I don’t think Jeff Kinney would agree to that. If you knew the Hunger Games, you would know that it’s not ‘child-friendly’.

  107. And the ‘battle’ thing looks more like strategic wrestling. I mean, that little person on the left looks like he’s wearing a wrestling suit.

  108. Red Wing:
    Hey, thanks, glad you figured out the next island, too!

  109. Red Wing:
    In the April Fools post, they said “Not since the introduction of the Costumizer or the removal of the Monster Carnival map icon have we made an update this momentous.”, So I think they’re mentioning it as a clue.

  110. They mentioned the battle arena when legendary swords first came out so I think are going to be trained hard so we can defeat E.Vile and save poptropica.

  111. I mean at the end of legendary swords it says battle arena coming soon

  112. Red Wing:
    I think Monster Carnival will come after the Olympic Island, unless you send an idea :).

  113. I honestly don’t know at this point what islands will be coming out XD

  114. It’s okay, I usually don’t know either! 🙂

  115. yeah What do I know!!!!!!!!!!!!

  116. um…Roosta? You okay?

  117. Yeah, what are you upset about?

  118. i saw the hunger games!! twice! it was SOOOOOO awesome

  119. king roosta lauren kinney is not jeff kinneys daughter and they cant make a hunger games island because its to gory

  120. how do u know?! (about lauren?)

  121. me and her had a cat fight

  122. but you’ve been talking 2 her, why did u say she’s not jeffs daughter?

  123. Ok Brave Star, you are right.

    Do youknow when poptropica will bring the ‘Poptropica Friends’ ?

  124. because she doesn’t make sense

  125. if you ever make a multiverse room my name is iceyrock:)

  126. the costume that im wearing in poptropica is an AWESOME Katniss costume

  127. Hey EV & katniss y’all r invited 2 a hunger games party at 7:45 pm on friday!!!

  128. hey Roosta, get started on the first book yet?

  129. what bout me ps i might be grounded for a week so if im gone u know why

  130. Tiny Tornado:
    Sorry, I’m just a Poptropica player, not an insider, so I don’t know when it’s coming out.

  131. Maybeeee……LOL no, but I will.

  132. eva the 8 year old kid

    hi

  133. eva the 8 year old kid

    i love hunger games

  134. Hi,eva!

  135. eva the 8 year old kid

    hi are you new

  136. eva the 8 year old kid

    changeing name

  137. Wow….the Hunger Games, well, no offense Lauren but i really dont believe the whole “Hunger Games” as a Poptropican Island thing.
    Once, again, i am agreeing with Everdeen on this one. The movie was rated PG-13 and this game was primarily made for kids ages 6-15, so i dont understand why an island based on a FIGHT TO THE DEATH would be appropriate. Lauren obviously does not know what she is getting herself into if she convinces Jeff to make this island because i KNOW the Creators will recieve approx. 1,000 complaints and the island, like poor Monster Carnival, will be shut down…….:(
    Yeah Brave-Star, the OLYMPICS ARE HERE…of course it can possibly be Legendary Swords too, but they keep saying “idea for possible future island” so im doubtful.

    Hey Roosta, um…..I’m NOT INVITED??????
    LOL just kidding it all right….4get about me 🙁
    😀
    Hi eva

  138. eva the 8 year old kid

    i want hunger games island!

  139. eva the 8 year old kid

    hi redwing

  140. But….
    i told the creators, using the link that Brave Star the Great posted, and asked them to bring back Monster Carnival….:) 😀 WE NEED THAT ISLAND BACKKK!
    I said the idea was “intriguing” and “creative” and ” a popular theme within the age group”
    Has anyone ever read the Goosebumps series? The one in the carnival? OMG this is JUST like that!

  141. Yeah eva i want the island too..:) but i just think that it is inappropriate for a game targeted at younger kids…..and if you are REALLY 8 years old………………………………………………………………………………………………. um
    😀 JK

  142. eva the 8 year old kid

    it can be avalabile not for young kids 8-to16

  143. eva the 8 year old kid

  198. @Mackenzie:

    Just keep on trying. I know it’s hard, but in the real world, if you get kicked off you wouldn’t be able to get back on. So you’re lucky
