Earlier today, I reported that the team were planning to update the Pet Shop to a more modern design. There’s been a lot of controversy about this change since I published that story, and the team have addressed the concerns, so it felt right to share their statement.
It should also be noted that despite some discontent, the team have confirmed the change and intend to release it. But this was their explanation for the change!
Something like this [Pet Shop change] is needed on our side as we want to branch out and bring in new content to keep things interesting. We are NOT decorating the entire island with the “modern” feel. This is from 2011, which we are also based on.-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
To address some of the questions which I’ve received, there are no plans for the Puffle Hotel or the Puffle Park that you may recall from classic Club Penguin! Those are all “post-2013”, which Club Penguin Rewritten isn’t based on. However, it does utilise content from 2011, which this Pet Shop design is from. In addition, there are no other rooms planned to receive an update; the Plaza will not be updated either.
Although the changes to rooms will not expand further than the Pet Shop, the puffle designs will also be updated with the change, which I’m actually pretty pleased to hear about. That news was revealed earlier today by the team.
I think it’s implied that if the Pet Shop changes, so will the puffles..-Thorn, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
I hope that helps with any concerns about the change, but please let me know if not!
