World of Warcraft, Neverwinter roll out Lunar New Year events and wild costumes

More MMOs are pushing out Lunar New Year content this week, joining games like Guild Wars 2 and Closers in celebrating the season.

In Neverwinter, it’s called the Feast of Lanterns, and it’s kicking off on January 31st for both PC and console, complete with fireworks, the requisite red envelopes, boar mounts, new hair (yay space buns), and new wearable cosmetics.

“Adventurers will have a chance to celebrate the lunar New Year and earn event currencies (Boar Coins and Lunar Coins) by helping out with the festival. In addition to Lunar Coin Packs containing event currencies, new far eastern hair styles and a new katana-wielding yojimbo companion are available in the Zen Market for a limited time during the festivities. Check them out before they’re gone!”

In World of Warcraft, you’ll be honoring your Elders once again, trading in your Ancestry coins for recipes, flower crowns, toys, and fireworks. This year, as WoWHead sussed out, there are seven new toys added, including a new hearthstone with special graphics and multiple bodies, tails, and heads for dragon costumes, which is easily one of the wackiest things to land in an MMO in recent memory.

I always look forward to the “We Think You Are Special Too, Asia” events all games released in China do every year now.
