Earlier today, the Club Penguin Rewritten team announced that they would be introducing a “way to get items soon”, potentially referencing the reward system discussed just over a week ago.

In regards to what these items could be, a sneak peek shows that the Shark Costume and Rainbow Paint Hoodie will almost certainly be available. Perhaps more excitingly though, a new penguin colour was also shown: Maroon! This colour was rejected by the public in the Colour Vote of 2017, but it seems likely that it’ll finally be appearing on the island.
A lot remains unclear about how this will work though. On classic Club Penguin, there was a “Quests” feature which offered some items through completing basic activities, so there could potentially be something similar to that.
Once more details are revealed, I’ll be sure to let you know!
