CityVille says Viva Mexico! with new Mexican themed items


To celebrate Mexican Independence, Zynga has launched a full theme of Mexican themed items in CityVille this afternoon. These items range from small decorations to large landmarks, so we'll make sure to give you a complete rundown on these items to know what to expect. Keep in mind, while they do have a longer time limit than usual at anywhere from 12-14 days (the usual being a week), they will eventually vanish from the store, so do some shopping sooner, rather than later. Here's what's available:

Ice Cream Cart (Decoration)

  • Costs: 5,000 coins

  • Payout Bonus: 3% to surrounding businesses and homes; bonus 3% to Mexico themed items

Guerrero Residence (Home)

  • Costs: 40 City Cash

  • Rent: 296 coins every 18 hours

Watch Tower (Decoration)

  • Costs: 24 City Cash

  • Payout Bonus: 24%; bonus 24% to Mexican themed items

Mayan Pyramid (Decoration)

  • Costs: 72,000 coins

  • Payout Bonus: 12%; bonus 12% to Mexican themed items

  • Not Limited Edition!

Morelos Fort (Community Building)

  • Costs: 70 City Cash

  • Allows: 2,000 citizens added to max population cap

Hacienda de Dolores (Home)

  • Rent: 451 coins every 3.1 days

House of Churros (Business)

  • Costs: 40 City Cash

  • Requires: 305 Goods

  • Supplies: 1648 coins

On top of all of this, there's also a Mexico Mystery Crate available for 40 City Cash that contains one of four items: the Morelos Fort, Hacienda de Dolores, Guerrero Residence or House of Churros. Sure, you'd get two items from this crate at a discounted price, but remember that there's no guarantee you won't receive duplicates when purchasing more than one crate. That is, if you're going for both the Hacienda and the Fort, you may very well end up with two House of Churros instead.

Either way, we'll make sure to let you know if other items are added in this Mexican Independence celebration theme, but we wouldn't be surprised if it's a one-time-deal.

What do you think of this new theme of items? Which ones have you purchased for your town and which ones will you skip? Sound off in the comments.
