Angry Birds Rio Fruit Market Update Coming Soon

Angry Birds Rio Fruit Market Episode Coming Soon Featured Image
Do not delete Angry Birds Rio!

On the heels of Angry Birds Rio’s first update in nearly nine months, some of our fantastic sleuths have uncovered even more good news! Angry Birds Rio will receive a full-sized update, in a new episode called Fruit Market! We have learned our lesson since the Pig Dipper incident, so here is our standard disclaimer, “The episode title is subject to change”. Our guess is that the general theme of the episode will be based on the deleted scene from the movie, which we have included below for your viewing pleasure.

Details are extremely scarce, of course. We have no idea when this update will land, especially with Rovio’s developers working on so many other editions of Angry Birds. If the other episodes are any indication, Fruit Market will have two chapters with 15 levels each — likely distributed over two separate updates. We expect Power Ups to stay, though of course we still hold out hope that some distinction between scores obtained with and without Power Ups.

A very small tidbit, that could mean nothing or everything. If you look closely at the image above, you can see a pig on the roof of one of the buildings. (See immediately left of the word “Market” or within the episode sliver.) Whether this means that those dastardly green piggies will appear in Rio for the first time (not counting balloons), or if it’s simply an Easter Egg that Rovio wanted to put in, remains to be seen. I dare say that the combined forces of pigs and marmosets could prove a formidable foe for our feathered friends.

A very special thanks to all those sleuths, especially @NerdyBird for providing the image and @AngryPerson for proving my skepticism wrong.

Wow! Thanks @AMslimfordy for the update.

I wonder what kind of hijinks we’ll see in 2014 when Rio 2 launches…

Yeah, I’m exited for the coming of Rio 2 in 2014!
I am wondering too what will happen when Rio 2 launches…
and I think a new update will come!

Well, it might be on the DVD or the Blu-ray disc, I think. It’s been a while since I’ve watched it, so I’m uncertain. In any event, it will be good to see an update, even one based on a deleted scene. Again, I’m uncertain, but I think there were two deleted scenes on the disk, so that might mean another chapter before Rio2 gets released.

Merry Christmas @TruckDriver, I wonder if they’ll leave us PC users out in the cold on this one too? The Small Rio update’s not yet out for us, so they’ll probably put us PC’ers in a Freezer for the big Update.

I’m sure they’ll get around to the PC’ers eventually.

Rio has always been a great game. Glad to see a full update will be coming. The Blue Bird has always had a great flight pattern. Hope they use more of Blue in the update. It seems like ages since I played Rio but the Awards Room was when I was awarded my first #1 score. Those events alway stick, especially the first one. It lasted only for the night but the fun was in the process of getting there.

@wrw01, I have always liked Rio, too. I got my first #1 score in Jungle Escape :). I have mixed feelings about Blue’s path; it depends on my result ;)- more my poor technique than anything else.

Thanks for keeping us up to date, @admins!

These in the Image are no pigs
These are Decorations like the ballons in Carnival Upheaval

By Morph416

Save the image to your comp.. then zoom in. It’s a pig.

Though, as speculation suggests, this may just be a “billboard” of sorts. And that is what I am hoping for.. as I see no reason to add the pigs to Rio since that version is based off the movie, that has no pigs in it.

By Matthew

Guys, I believe this scene would likely have been put in after the birds escape from the smuggler’s den but the definite cutoff for this event happening storyline-wise would probably have to be around Carnival. Rovio should think about that when it comes time to place the sliver in the menu, or at least call a member of the movie crew if you know anyone from there to figure out the parameters that you can use for all these things like placement and storylines.

It’s a deleted scene. Makes sense to appear at the end of the list.

I was of the belief the image posted was a ‘fan art’ image from Deviant Art? Surely if it was a Rovio image they wouldn’t have posted the image all over deviant art?

I do hope so, but I doubt it. They’ve missed the off button in a major update, I can’t see that many changes here for an episode release.

Rio has always been the worst AB game, to me. All of the physics and effects seem markedly different to other games. But new episodes mean I will no longer have 3* across the board, and we can’t have that!

@hinarei, but If it wasn’t for ABR, they would have not stepped out of their shell from classic, and made the newest sprites for the birds and pigs!

Rank: Fling King with 4470 points
By hinarei (@hinarei)

@souperbrick sorry I missed your reply!

woo. sprites. I was fine with Classic, nothing wrong with Classic sprites! OK, had to do something different with Star Wars and Space, I can see that…

thing with Rio is that it all seemed to be such an effort. It seems to me to behave markedly different from ABO and Seasons and for no discernible reason: there’s no gravity or water effects to worry about like in Space, but the birds sometimes appear to be flying through treacle.

Still, I’ll play it if it’s out there and on an accessible device :D

I don’t… hate the game as such, @cc-jolly, don’t get me wrong (it’s Birds, after all), but it’s not Birds as came before or after. Every effort prior or since has been, well, better.

Now that it is mentioned officially,I will wait for this update. It’s true that I personally tried to uninstall this app from my PC, thinking an update for it was too farfetched for an update but now along with the bonus episodes(which still hasn’t landed for PC yet), now there’s even more reason not to discard ABRio.

Is everyone sure that it will be a new, full-sized episode, I have a feeling that it could be a new shop, in which the golden fruit is sold for Power-Ups, The Mighty Eagle (in which nobody has mentioned that he is randomly in the image) and maybe a new addition to the game!?!?!

Rank: Sling God with 28115 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

It’s an Episode update. The Mighty Eagle is not part of the original image but added by use to spice it up a bit. (Plus the Mighty Eagle already exists for Rio)

There was. I think they did that to prep us for the next new update, aka Fruit Market. However, that name of the new world may change as the details for it are limited.

This probably means more bonus levels to add to the Trophy Room. Wonder what golden fruits we’ll have to find this time.

Maybe a mixture? I mean, it’s a FRUIT market. But very good question.

Maybe Grapes and an Opened Fruit Crate with some random fruits as the two extra levels.

What they should do is add another 15 levels to Golden Beachball to even out that section with the others as well.

@amslimfordy Come on.The final cutscene in Smugglers’Plane shows the birds returning to their own island.So why are they coming back to the city?It’s like a kidnapped kid returning to where he’d been forced to stay after being rescued and going back to his family.

OK thanks @AMslimfordy for the news. As you replied on my question that Rovio most probably isn’t going to release Rio v1.5 for PC users. Then let’s wait for the Full-sized update i.e. Fruit Market and hope it will release soon…

I would think with the Rio Olymics in 2016, they would want to keep thing going. The Hubby and I have been joking around about it since the announcement at the London Olymics. We have even talked about going, what a great place for the First ABN Convention!!!!! ;D

Does anyone know why the power-ups for pc version not?

The reason is that IAP (in app purchase) is not enabled on pc.
