CityVille: Celebrate Chinese New Year with new limited edition items

Brandy Shaul

While Chinese New Year might not be a holiday most gamers think to celebrate, Zynga seems to be the exception to the rule, as CityVille's store has received an update containing Chinese themed items that will only be available for a limited time. these items are available for both coins or City Cash, meaning that there's something for everyone. Whether or not you choose to combine them with your Red Envelope Store will be up to you, but here's a complete look at the new items all the same.

Hungry Dragon Buffet

So far, this theme isn't very large, but as there's still some time left before the Chinese New Year holiday actually arrives, it's possible we'll see more items released between now and then (January 23). Either way, these items will expire from the store after 16 days, so make sure to purchase them before they leave or you'll miss your chance to have them, potentially forever.

What do you think of these new Chinese themed items released in the store this week? Will you purchase any of them for your city? Sound off in the comments.
