On This Day In Club Penguin History – May 9

By / May 11, 2015

On the 9th of May Club Penguin has updated in 2008 and 2013. In 2008 there was a new pin hidden and the Twelfth Fish stage play returned for another showing. 2013, on the other hand, had a lot of updates. There was a new Penguin Style for the month, the My Penguin app was released for the iPad, Card-Jitsu Fire and Card-Jitsu Water were no longer only for members, and much much more!

The new pin hidden on this day in 2008 was the Goblet Pin. The Goblet Pin is Club Penguins’ 61st pin and it is the fourth pin to be hidden at the Coffee Shop. Also in 2008, the Twelfth Fish stage play returned for its first encore since the original performance in December 2007.

Skipping ahead five years brings us to 2013, the only other year Club Penguin has updated on the 9th of May. While not an update inside the virtual world, on this day in 2013 the team released the My Penguin app for the iPad, which has since been renamed to just Club Penguin. At the time the app only let you play games, dress up your penguin, manage your buddy list, and view the blog and videos. Over the past two years even more content has been added to the app, such as igloos and rooms.

In the actual Club Penguin game there were many updates. The biggest one was the release of the May 2013 Penguin Style. The theme of items that month was ninjas.

Speaking of ninjas, there were also some ninja/Card-Jitsu related updates on this day. Sensei’s buddy list icon was changed to his updated look, nonmembers could now play Card-Jitsu Fire and Card-Jitsu Water, and the Battle of the Ancient Shadows play returned to the Stage.

There was also a few other updates in 2013 that were not ninja or Card-Jitsu related. The featured postcards were updated, the reconstruction of the EPF Command Room progressed, and Spy Drills were now available as a replacement in lieu of field ops.
