I thought it was about time we talk speculation! We have reached our first day of April, April Fools! However a new month brings new content and also this month for Tapped Out brings new competition with the new upcoming Family Guy Mobile Game. So what could we expect from April 2014?
This post will be speculating of the possible updates we could get from April 2014! This will also look back at last years content and comparing our recent content to last years content. This will also be speculating dates of what I think 2014 April will bring to Tapped Out.
Lets have a look at last years content April 2013 brought to Tapped Out. The first update of April arrived on April 8th 2013 which brought along a new episode tie-in linked with the episode ‘What Animated Women Want’. This included the decoration Springfield Falls and the building Swanky Fish. Both were limited time however both have made a re-appearance in the game with being limited once again.
Apart from bringing along new content the episode tie-in also brought what people think to be a hidden spoiler. There was a small quest for Comic Book Guy in the premium walk-through and the dialogue told us about an upcoming Japanese girlfriend (AKA Kumiko):
Comic Book Guy: A new sushi restaurant? Well, I don’t have a Japanese girlfriend yet — SPOILER ALERT! — but I may as well prime my palate.
As you can see EA gave us a very early spoiler for the upcoming release of Kumiko. This was something that was just ignored as many people didn’t think of it as a spoiler but just as a piece of dialogue in a quest! Instead of looking in the files for spoilers, EA gave us one clear in-game spoiler for the release of Kumiko.
Kimiko arrived to tapped out in 2014 as the years first episode tie-in linked to the episode Married to the Blob.
Our second update of the month was Whacking Day. Whacking Day arrived to tapped out on April 10, 2013 and is the long awaited Whacking Day update. It did not end on May 2, 2013 as originally thought, or on May 9, 2013 as originally stated in the guide but a week later on May 16, 2013.
Whacking Day was the first event that introduced the prize grid to the game. This brought new prizes to the game which included you having to tap/whack an number amount of snakes to obtain the prize.
I will not go into to much detail about Whacking Day as there will be an upcoming post that will have a look at last years Whacking Day in full detail.
Our third and final update of April brought along a brand new level during the Whacking Day event. This saw level 28 hit our towns with the return of Fat Tony and his men along with the Rich Texan as a premium character for the level.
February 2014 – March 2014:
I have been taking a look at the updates that we have had this year so far to the updates we had last year. I have noticed that EA have been going in the same pattern even though it may not be the same dates. Here is a list of the updates of 2013 from February to March along with a list of update of 2014 from February to March:
- Gorgeous Grampa (Episode Tie-In)
- St. Patrick’s Day 2013 (Mini-Event)
- Dark Knight Court (Episode Tie-In)
- Level 27
- Diggs and The Man Who Grew Too Much (Episode Tie-In)
- St. Patrick’s Day 2014 (Mini-Event)
- The War of Art (Episode Tie-In)
- Level 39
So as you can see EA has not gone with the same dates as last year. However you can see that they have been going in the same pattern as last year. This may just be a coincidence or it may be a clue.
2014 April Speculation:
So going off my details above here is what I think April 2014 will bring to Tapped Out:
- Days of Future Future (Episode Tie-In) 8th April
- Whacking Day (Event) 10th April
- Level 40 (Level Update) 25th April
Remember this is pure speculation and just a complete guess of what April might bring. However some is going off facts and dates from last year which could conclude this is all not speculation.
What are your opinions on my speculation and do you have a speculation of your own? If so share in the comment section below. Happy Tapping, Nathan.
