If the collective sigh of an entire generation wasn’t enough, Disney’s Club Penguin officially shut down Wednesday. But, when one door closes another opens in its place, right? At least that’s the case for these virtual penguins and their world of animation.

While the original Club Penguin is a thing of the past, Disney is introducing its brand new version of the mobile game, Club Penguin Island. Now available in the App Store and Google Play, your very own virtual penguin is only a click away.

Club Penguin Island, unlike the original, no longer requires a computer. In fact, this app is mobile only. This is Disney’s attempt to re-engage children with the game that was once home to hundreds of millions of users. The new version allows for a fresh take to an old game. For instance, nothing from the original Club Penguin is transferrable to the new Club Penguin Island. Everything starts from scratch, including your penguin avatar.

For all the millennials who are up playing Club Penguin, here’s everything you can expect to see in this renewed virtual world.

So, what new new features does Club Penguin Island offer? Read here to find out.

    It’s too bad that Disney continues to implement a “pirate-y” theme into every (trending) game-platform they deem as important considering back in 2012 & 2013, Disney chose to ignore some 3,000+ signatures acquired to petition Disney alone to keep such a game open because of said interest. RIP “Pirates of the Caribbean Online,” shuttered by Disney on September 19, 2013.
