So we were all promised a surprise announcement during the recent TinyCo Live Q&A, (more on that in a later post), and the big surprise was, well just to tell us what the next event would be, not the end of the game like some had predicted. Although by the reaction to the news that the next event will be a link up with the new Power Rangers movie you’d thought the end was nigh but hey let’s reserve judgement as who knows what the Kaiju Convention will bring to our towns.
So let’s chat a little about what we know so far from the guys at TinyCo’s chat with us. Firstly they revealed there would be a discounted pre sale of a new premium character Rita Repulsa. And you’ll find her in your game just now, with a limited time offer to buy her for 220 clams instead of her 260 clam cost. The timers ticking on this deal, and you can see just how much time you’ve got left by looking at the offer Icon at the bottom right of your screen. Tapping this will bring you up the Here Comes Rita Repulsa screen. You can purchase her from here or through your character tab in your shopping cart. But remember the reduced price is a limited time offer.
Who is she and what can she do in the event, well the first question is easy, she’s the nemesis of our Power Ranger heroes. But the second question is impossible to answer at this time as no information has been given as to what she will do in the event so if you buy her now, you’re not going to know what you are getting until the event starts. As you can see her purchase screen doesn’t give any hints to her use as yet.
Now her discount timer in my game shows the offer will end Wednesday at 3pm Pacific time, and we’ve been told the event starts Wednesday so technically if everything starts as planned you could hold off until the event starts to get her, but if the event start is delayed, which often happens, then you may need to make the decision to buy or not to buy without knowing her event value. It’s for this reason I’m not going to do a Should I Buy just now, because I can’t give you an honest breakdown, however what I will say is I’m thinking about buying her as it’s a full character for a little over 200 clams, and I like the look of her. It’s really as simple as that, lol.
Now the first thing that happens with any new event teaser is we get a chorus of Who, What, Where and When in the comments. Well I don’t know anymore than what the TinyCo guys shared with us in their Q&A but for those who missed it or missed some snippets here’s a few things we do know.
- There’s gonna be Cosplay in Quahog, c’mon we all love a bit of Cosplay, don’t we Bunny, lol.
- A Kaiju Convention is coming to Quahog, so we might get some MONSTERS!!! Please make it so TinyCo.
- According to Jay at TinyCo we’re going see some new gameplay features in this event, and that’s something we’ve been asking for, for a long time.
- And again from the Q&A discussion, the event will likely be a month-long event.
- The Power Rangers haven’t really featured much in the Family Guy TV show, so who knows what to expect with regards to any storyline as yet.
And that’s all we can tell you for now, as we don’t do spoilers here as you know. But I hope to see you all at the Kaiju Convention when it comes to town. I know many of you have already commented that you aren’t Power Ranger fans, hey I’m with you there, but we’re going see new gameplay and maybe some MONSTERS!!! So let’s give it a go.
So Go, Go Addicts and I’ll see you at the Kaiju. And don’t forget to share what you think of the teaser? And what about Rita Repulsa, are you going to ‘pick’ her up? Did you already? If so, thoughts on her? And did any of you know Alex Borstein was the voice of various characters in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and the voice of Queen Machina in Power Rangers Zeo?
