With the Swanky Fish update, there’s also the promise to Milhouse of something bigger coming this Thursday. What exactly is it likely to be?Regular readers of this blog will have already guessed that it’s probably not a promise of a bigger Springfield and that it’s maybe, possibly, perhaps, a Whacking Day event.
After getting the prediction of the Swanky Fish promotion right, I’m feeling a little more confident so, just in case you missed them, here are links to the posts from a couple of weeks back on what’s lurking in the game files for a possible Whacking Day event (as well as a post explaining just what Whacking Day is for people who don’t remember the episode):
What is Whacking day?
Whacking day song
Whacking Day prizes
Whacking day decorations
Speculation on Origin for Android
Of course, what happens on Thursday could all be completely different. We won’t really know until then!
I don’t think I’ve seen so many rumors about what’s coming next in the game as I have in the last week or so. In the poll post, I wrote about the characters that may or may not be on their way soon – but here are the buildings that are rumored to be prizes in a possible April Whacking Day event:
Sleep-Eazy Motel (with Miss Springfield)
Springfield Coliseum (with Tatum)
Now, if there is a Whacking Day event (and nothing has been confirmed yet), this actually sounds feasible. After all, at Christmas, the prizes for collecting Santa Coins were:
Try ‘N’ Save
Barney’s Bowlarama (with Barney)
Santa’s Little Helper
And something very similar happened at both Halloween and Valentine’s Day – candy and hearts got you some great limited-time buildings, costumes, and characters.
I’ll be posting more on this over the next few days – but remember that these are just rumors at the moment. There are, as yet, no images available. When there are, it will all be a little more real.
