New Mystery Box

After tapping on Mr. Burns' exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png Mystery box sales are down again this month! How could something that once topped the charts every week fall so far out of favor with the public?
Tapped Out Smithers Icon.png Actually sir, that's to be expected. People experienced the mystery box, they enjoyed it for a while, and now they've moved on.
Tapped Out Smithers Icon.png Perhaps we could come up with something else to sell them — something new and original!
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png Yes yes, we'll get to that. But first we have to do everything we can to keep them interested in spending money on the old thing!
Tapped Out Smithers Icon.png Really, sir? Wouldn't it make more sense just to appreciate the mystery box for what it was and just remove it from the store? Let it die with dignity?
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png Die? With dignity? I intend to do neither of those things. And the mystery box won't either!
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png Change the interface! Offer a promotion! Rebalance the economy! Inspire nostalgia! We need to try anything and everything we can to keep it afloat!
Tapped Out Smithers Icon.png I suppose we could offer a new set of prizes for the mystery box.
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png That's a start... but I was hoping for something more superficial.
Tapped Out Smithers Icon.png A new icon?
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png Excellent.
System Message The new Mystery Box has arrived! With new prizes AND a new icon.
