The update today has brought several new characters with it, some new and some old, and some aren’t available yet.
Some characters which make up the Holiday character set aren’t readily available to us yet, some of them are community prize awards, and some may be much further down the quest line.
Some also come with buildings, such as Mr.Costington, for most people who haven’t got donuts readily available, you won’t see him for a while.
Another interesting addition is that of the Happy Little Elves.
They come with the Elf House, and are essentially the Christmas version of the ghost bomb. Every 12 hours or so (don’t hold me to that) they can be released sort of like ghosts from Halloween, but this time round the serve the function of whizzing around and picking up all the cards and gift boxes which are lying around your Springfield; handy eh?
The only exception with the characters is the Elves- they aren’t really characters, although they could look like it, they aren’t essentially characters as they only come out of the small house to collect the presents. They don’t have tasks, and they only stay in your town for short periods at a time, flying across the screen before you can really decipher what is going on.
Below are some of the rest of the characters. You will find the man in the candy cane in the premium items section. And if i’m not mistaken the Christmas Raccoon is there as well. Below them are Christmas Homer, and the reindeer; who both return from last year. They’re joined by an ‘overly-religious’ Santa Ned Flanders, who has several tasks when you buy his outfit, which include going round delivering overly-religious sermons at the church. Like Mr.Costington however, most of Ned’s tasks are inside, what a shame!
So there you have it. Upon collection of a new Christmas character, you can see some of the one’s that aren’t yet unlocked, one of them is a green sort of Bigfoot, very much like, if not the same as one of the thanksgiving balloons.
To end this post- One of the latter community prizes is (as i’d like to smugly add again) someone who I had predicted to be added. One of my favourite characters, the YESSSSSSS man. For those of you who that means nothing to- this is what he looks like.
Dont forget to comment who you think should’ve been added if they haven’t appeared in this update.
