It is official. Earlier today my friend Trainman1405 posted on his blog Club Penguin Memories that Club Penguin would be making Russian one of their playable languages in the future, which he found out based on code in the game and other info. Later, Spike Hike himself acknowledged this by tweeting an image of him logging into a Russian server!
And soon after that, Train had even more proof!
Later, Spike officially confirmed it on the blog.
Привет Penguin Friends,
Our global Penguin community is growing again! We are so excited to announce that Club Penguin is finally coming to Russia!
This marks the sixth language to join Club Penguin. With over 7M kids online in Russia, we hope to see lots of Russian Penguins waddling around the island soon.
To our new Russian friends, “добро пожаловать” (welcome)! What makes Club Penguin special is the diverse community of kids like you from around the world who visit the island every day and fill it with their joy and imaginations. Here, the coolest thing you can be is yourself, and we can’t wait to see the special things you will bring to our community.
I also want to say “привет” to our new Russian blogger Snego Lex. Snego will keep our Russian Penguins up to date on everything happening on the island and will also share more about Russia and its culture with the rest of our Penguins around the globe.
Club Penguin will go live in Russian officially on February 6 at www.ClubPenguin.com/RU and will be available in the next release of the Club Penguin app in the next few months.
Until next time…шлёпаем дальше (Waddle On)!
-Club Penguin Team
Are you excited? I am, even though I don’t speak Russian. Maybe the new language will be launched in time for the Winter Olympics being held in Soschii, Russia this February? Who knows? All we know is, it’s coming soon and allow the chance for more people worldwide to play the game!
