This just in.

4 days ago the status was

"Very soon!"

Right now on Twitter

"Very soon."

Notice the exclamation mark missing being replaced by a dot?
What could this mean?!

As elusive as ever, always accompanied by that "soon"

Pretty sure the punctuation has no specific meaning and you're just looking into it too much.

Perhaps the progression is:
Very soon!
Very soon.
Very soo..
Very so...

And so on

No matter, The cycle will eventually return to "soon" that's a status I feel safe with now. I refuse to leave that comfort zone.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

Sunday is the least likely because timezones causing some countries to be almost a day ahead of others meaning that it'll already be August for parts of the world. Saturday is plausible but I recall hearing that Playtonic Games doesn't typically work on weekends and I certainly don't ever recall getting an update on a Saturday. That said, I predict that we're getting the codes Friday at the latest unless someone at Playtonic wants to put in overtime in which case it would be Saturday.

But if they plan on surprising us I don't think it'll be last minute because then we will have ruled every other day out... This is starting to look just like the Unexpected Hanging Paradox (watch the video below if you don't know what I'm talking about).

They confirmed on the 25th that the Toybox is still set for a July release, so I have no doubt we'll get it this week.

P.s. I don't believe missing an exclamation mark has any deeper meaning at all, but it's funny to see you all speculate to such depth.

Heh, these ridiculous posts about "very soon" are quite amusing.

I'm not worried at all, just eager. I've been among those telling the worriers to wait this whole time. I can be excited and patient at the same time :P
