Development has begun to re-introduce Card Jitsu to Club Penguin Rewritten, the team have announced! In addition, they also confirmed there’ll be some improvements when the game returns using the new HTML5 technology:
- Clearer and better information on how to play will be provided
- It’ll become easier to obtain new cards
- Some of the UI (User Interface) will be updated
One of the UI screens which will be improved is the matchmaking screen, as you can see above; previously, it was just a blue dialog. The team are also considering whether or not to wipe the progress of everyone in Card Jitsu. There’s a poll ongoing on the official Community section about that very issue right now, but currently the general consensus is opposing everyone’s progress being reset.
Card Jitsu is still planned to be released this year. Thank you very much for reading!
There’s been a lot of curiosity about when Card Jitsu could be returning to Club Penguin Rewritten! Earlier today, the team stated that it’d “probably” be returning this year, but they were unable to make that same commitment about Card Jitsu Fire, which might still take quite a while to release.
Original Card-Jitsu [is] probably coming this year, but I don’t know about Card-Jitsu Fire coming in [this] same year.-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
Both of those games would have to be re-added before Card Jitsu Water could be developed, so the team also stated that they were very “doubtful” that Card Jitsu Water would be coming this year.
It’d be nice to see Card Jitsu return though, and I know many people are awaiting it, so I thought that I’d share this little update! Even if it doesn’t confirm much properly, it does give some indication that we might need to wait a few months to play the game again, and probably over a year for Card Jitsu Water.
This has been the most common question which I’ve received lately, and with the striking of the Great Storm, many have been wondering: when will it be possible to become a Water Ninja and access the Water Dojo on Club Penguin Rewritten?
Since there’s been so much speculation and so much confusion, I just wanted to write a post clearing that up once and for all! The answer is that development of Card Jitsu Water will only begin subsequent to the official launch of the HTML5 version. At present, the HTML5 version is scheduled to be launched in late December. In other words, development won’t even begin until next year.
Even once the HTML5 version has launched, there’s still a lot of time that will be required to develop the game. As such, it isn’t plausible to expect Card Jitsu Water to be released within the upcoming few weeks; it will likely take several months, if not more. However, the team have made clear that development will not begin until the transition to the new technology of HTML5 has concluded.
Although this isn’t a news post, there’s been many people thinking that the Great Storm could be foreshadowing the opportunity to become a Water Ninja. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case since development hasn’t even begun yet, and I hope this post clears that up.
It’s been a while since information was released by the Club Penguin Rewritten team regarding Card Jitsu Water. It was initially due to release in 2019, but it’s unlikely for it to release soon.
A statement was recently released regarding the game that I thought was worth sharing. It confirms that Card Jitsu Water isn’t anywhere near the priority right now, but it also suggests that the team are working on something else of significance!
[Card Jitsu Water] is in our thoughts, we don’t want to work on anything this big at the moment due to us working on something already for the game.

In regards to when this mystery “something” is due to be announced, sadly it won’t be “any time soon”. I’ll let you know if anything else is revealed, thank you for reading!
Some additional information has been revealed about Card Jitsu Water coming to Club Penguin Rewritten! 💧
It was initially announced in September 2018 that the game was intended to release at some point this year, but there’s not been much information about it recently…until now.
“(Card Jitsu) Water is still in discussion with some programming done. The state it is in right now is nowhere near ready for release, but it will eventually come with the hype surrounding it beforehand.”
-stu, Club Penguin Rewritten administrator
It’s still unclear if the game is still intended to release this year as was initially confirmed since it’s been quite a while since the game was last mentioned. However, it’s quite exciting that development has already begun on it!
Thank you for reading, waddle on!
The Fire Scavenger Hunt has begun on Club Penguin Rewritten, and Card Jitsu Fire is almost certainly going to be releasing this month! The sky has turned orange, and there’s also an awesome hunt to complete.
Sensei is likely to visit for this event, and you can view his tracker here.
The first Devcast was recorded last night, in which the Club Penguin Rewritten team held a podcast, announcing a ton of stuff and answering a lot of questions!
If you’d like to watch the full thing, you can do so here! However, I will still share everything significant shared, though bare in mind that includes a lot of spoilers which were given!
The Fair 2018
A lot of news and sneak peeks were revealed about the Fair, including lots of room designs! These were the rooms which were revealed in the video, though please note that the prizes aren’t the ones shown in the images!
Talking of the prizes, the team confirmed that there will be custom (exclusive to Club Penguin Rewritten) rewards which can be earnt by winning tickets, and that this year’s Fair will be a lot better than last year’s!
A lot was revealed on Card Jitsu during the podcast, including a full picture of the Fire Dojo! Though you’ve likely seen it before, it’s still cool to know that Card Jitsu Fire is on the way, and the team have been hyping it up a lot recently.
You can view more here.
And perhaps some even more exciting news! Card Jitsu Water is confirmed for 2019 and Card Jitsu Snow has been confirmed for 2021!
Note: the team have since backtracked regarding the timescale of Card Jitsu Snow, though remain adamant it’s a possibility
You might be wondering how this is possible since Flash ends in 2020, but the team have already confirmed Flash won’t be the end of the game and have given some details on Card Jitsu Snow.
In regards to Card Jitsu Shadow, the team did state that they were looking into it, but it’s not something which is going to be a focus on anytime soon, especially with Card Jitsu Fire, Water and Snow needing to come first.
The news on Card Jitsu is probably some of the most exciting recently, but a lot more was also revealed!
Game/Room Revamps & Stamps
Cart Surfer and Ice Fishing have both received amazing redesigns, and extensions for Dance Contest and Sled Racing have been added, but a lot more are planned!
You may recall that Hydro Hopper stamps are likely but now it seems Hydro Hopper and Jet Pack Adventure will be the next games to be revamped! The team also said that eventually their ideas from when the game closed will be added, and one of those ideas was a revamp of Astro Barrier, so perhaps that will come soon too!
In terms of other things related to stamps, the team confirmed that Coins for Change will be occurring again in December, and they’ll be adding the stamps which you can obtain by donating a specific amount of coins in one go.
Lastly, for rooms, the next room to be getting a slight redesign similar to the Pizza Parlor is the Coffee Shop.
Quite a bit of awesome changes were announced to igloos:
- Igloo Likes will be added (allows other penguins to like your igloo)
- There’ll be an option to save igloos and most likely flooring in the future
- More igloo contests will be held in the future
Along with this, the team confirmed that they were working on improving the puffle care system too, but haven’t given more details other than they’ll fix puffle health!
Elite Penguin Force
It’s already been shared by the team that they’re planning to finish construction in November, and that the EPF HQ will be redesigned, but the team have now confirmed there’ll be custom missions with unique storylines, and there’ll “definitely” be new missions in the future.
A few other things were also confirmed: the team are looking into adding the Treasure Book, there are no plans for future colours yet and no new mascots have been thought of yet, although the team recently confirmed there’ll be new ones.
Overall though, the podcast was really cool and an excellent idea! Lots of exciting stuff was revealed, and there’ll hopefully be one soon in the future! I might have missed something, but I believe I’ve covered all the significant information in this blog post.
Thank you very much for reading, waddle on!
Earlier today, the Club Penguin Rewritten team hinted at several things on Twitter, including an increased number of leaderboards and new puffles!
This is what one of the things they tweeted was:
EPF is still currently in development as it’s something really big and something we’ve never really done before. More leaderboards? Absolutely.
More puffles? That would be generous, and fun. We have a lot of planned for future parties, CJ Fire is also in development.
Firstly, the team stated that more puffles would be “fun”, and you may be aware about the Grey Puffle which has been hinted many times on the game, even by PH, who acknowledged its existence and hinted at it coming! Learn more here.
PSA / EPF is currently under construction, but there’s actually a LOT going on behind the scenes regarding it, and what we have planned, requires a lot of work being done for all you fans out there, it’ll be worth the wait, definitely.
Lastly, the team stated that more leaderboards, similar to the Cart Surfer leaderboard, are also going to make their way to the game. An example of this could be the Card Jitsu leaderboard, which we received a concept (not a final version) of.
They also revealed this about Card Jitsu Water:
Card-Jitsu Fire is being worked on before water, and water will be released very shortly afterwards.
This all sounds very exciting, and with Summer promised to be amazing, it seems like we may be able to expect some of the things soon!
Thank you very much for reading, be sure to check back for more of the latest news and guides!
Card Jitsu Fire “should” be releasing on Club Penguin Rewritten this year (read more), and Water is expected to follow soon after!
However, a question which many have had is if it would be possible for, in the future, the team to bring Card Jitsu Snow to the island. It seems very complicated, for both technical reasons and the practical reason of it all being in the modern style and art which CP Rewritten does not follow.
However, the administrator Hagrid confirmed that it is “possible”, and that it would be “fun and challenging”, though they’d have to “fully remake the whole game”.
It likely won’t be anytime soon, especially with Card Jitsu Fire and Water coming out first, but it’d still be incredible to see Card-Jitsu Snow on the island one day! Thank you very much for reading, be sure to check back for more of the latest news and guides.
This blog is now active once again, with the trackers now working once more and news will be posted! Over the last week, I missed quite a bit, including Club Penguin Rewritten reaching 2 million users!
In celebration of this, the team released two new codes, which can be redeemed by clicking “Unlock Items Online” in the top right corner of the servers page and then “I’ve got a code”, then enter in the codes.
- 2MILLION unlocks the Sunset Lei
- CARDDECK unlocks a few random Card Jitsu codes
If you’re still hoping to get more Card Jitsu codes, I would suggest checking the Club Penguin Rewritten team’s official Twitter account, which you can view here. For the rest of the week, on each day, a code will be released which only a few hundred people can use.
Beware though, these codes tend to expire literally within minutes! With the last code, there were 144 uses in just 15 seconds! They all offer a random selection of cards though, with one power card.
Thank you very much for reading, and good luck obtaining the codes!
