FarmVille Mardi Gras Sneak Peek: Mardi Gras Tree & Giant Mardi Gras Tree
Similar to last year in FarmVille, it looks like Zynga will be bringing back a Mardi Gras theme to the game in the very near future, as we've come across images of two new Mardi Gras trees. As you might expect from the past few months of releases, the two trees are the Mardi Gras Tree and the Giant Mardi Gras Tree. While they might not look to be much different in size, look closely and you will see that one is larger than the other.
Not to be confused with the Carnival Trees released last year (see at right), these Mardi Gras trees are just the palm tree portions of those previously released trees (with a new hat), without the masks on sticks. In other words - these trees look more like actual trees, rather than some larger decorative item. These new trees will also apparently be masterable, which is more than I can say for the Carnival Tree, even if you still have them on your land (like I do).
Once again, these trees will create bead necklaces, but only purple and gold this time, unlike the purple, green, and gold option from last year. These are different trees - make no mistake. We'll make sure to give you all of the details about these unreleased trees as they become available, so keep checking back.
Note: Some users have started reporting that some Mystery Seedlings are turning into Giant Mardi Gras Trees when watered. The release of trees as Mystery Seedlings normally happens just a few days before the tree itself is officially released in the game's store, so it's likely that the Mardi Gras theme will launch this weekend (we'd guess Sunday evening). For now, make sure to keep a lookout for these Giant Mardi Gras Trees being posted by your friends on the news feed.
Let us know what you think of these Mardi Gras trees in the comments - do you like this year's tree set better than the Carnival Tree released last year?
