If you look from the telescope from the top of the Beacon, you’ll notice that the pirate crabs are sailing closer to the island on Club Penguin Rewritten! It now seems almost certain that the island is their intended destination, even if their motive is unclear.
Interestingly, the Migrator is still docked on the island, and the crabs appear to have their separate ship. It’s not known whether Rockhopper will still be visiting over the next few days, despite his ship being docked, but it certainly seems the Captain might have some trouble soon!
It’s quite likely that these crabs will be linked to January’s event, but the specifics aren’t known yet! As soon as more details are confirmed, I’ll be sure to let you know! Thank you very much for reading!
