Yesterday on the Club Penguin Blog Spike Hike published a rather important post about My Penguin and its upcoming 1.2 update. As first teased in episode 6 of #WaddleOn, the My Penguin update will feature 3D penguins. It’s a really big update, so I’ll just paste Spike Hike’s full post below where he explains this huge update:
Last Friday we debuted our sixth episode of #WaddleOn and many penguins told us that they noticed something…. different.
You guessed it – full 3D avatars are coming to My Penguin 1.2 for iPad!!
We’ve completely rebuilt the avatar from scratch to take full advantage of 3D. All your items from Club Penguin are available with this new 3D avatar. When you change your avatar on clubpenguin.com, your outfit will show in My Penguin, too! And if you change your outfit in My Penguin, you will be able to see it on the web. They are completely synched up so it’s easy to go back and forth. We’ve also re-done all our animations in 3D!
Below is a video that gives you peek at how cool these animations look in 3D. The team worked on these for over a year and did an amazing job! You are going to have a ton of fun playing with all your special dance items and seeing the cool, new animations. Check it out:
In other news… this new avatar also gives us a LOT of opportunity down the road! I don’t want to spoil it now, but let’s just say that this will let us take animations, special dance items, and interaction with the world to an entirely new level! I hope you are as excited as I am about My Penguin 1.2! Pay attention to the blog for even more sneak peeks about what’s next! Until next time…Waddle On!
It sounds and looks awesome! I hear My Penguin 1.2 will be out by the end of the month. :)
