Angry Birds Seasons Back to School Update Coming Soon

A soon-to-be-released update to the Angry Birds Seasons franchise looks to be called, “Back to School” and, as we expected, will include a brand new pink bird. In the video above notice that the pink bird carries a bubble wand. She happily bounces around to and fro while blowing bubbles, large and small. That is, until she happens upon the pigs, who are doing what they do best: plotting a master plan to steal the birds’ eggs (a plan that includes an iron of all things). When she gets angry she uses her bubble wand to blow an egg shaped bubble, which acts as a sort of decoy and lures in the pigs. Since the pigs aren’t the most brilliant of creatures they chase the bubble to their ultimate demise.

That is a long winded way of saying that the pink bird’s power seems to be the ability to blow egg shaped bubbles that act as a sort of decoy. Exactly how this will work in the actual game remains to be seen, but regardless, I am excited and can’t wait to see.

I should note. A “Back to School” update isn’t exactly what we expected. When Rovio teased us that a new pink bird would soon join our beloved flock a few super-sleuths made a brilliant connection between the female pink bird and the forthcoming Chinese Qixi Festival. The Qixi Festival is also known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day, so it made complete sense. Anyhow, as brilliant of a guess as it was it looks like it was wrong (always fun speculating though!).

The music in the credits. Might that be the music for back to school?

Sure sounds like it; you can hear the Angry Birds melody in there. Sounds like a retro school theme!

Rovio just uploaded a new cover photo in their FB page. The books in the photo remind me of Amazing Alex, same design too… could this have a meaning to it?

I think you’re right. Interesting. I know there is that book from Nat Geo coming in September that is supposed to tell all the secrets of the birds. I wonder if they all have human names like this..

The game should be out this up coming Thurs or the next. If I were Rovio I would make sure to release it around now because all of their pens, paper, stickers, pencils, folders, binders, etc. are on store shelves now. At our family run store its hard to get our hands on Angry Birds Merch but we have a ton of it right now for the back to school season.

Plus the new Girl Bird will drive sales even more now that all the little girls will have a bird to relate to & think is cute.

Very good thought about sales. I know there are probably tons of girls that already play, but now they have their own bird to talk about and collect. It wouldn’t be a terrible idea for Rovio to make a version of Angry Birds with mostly female birds. There could be a lot of new consumers in that group.

By BirdBrain

I’m probably in the minority here, but I wish Rovio would get better about the spacing of their release dates. It seems that we go a while without having anything new and then BOOM – pretty much everything at once – Space, Surf and Turf and now Seasons. I would enjoy it all much more if I could focus on one game at a time. And I know no one is telling me that I can’t, but I feel “pressured” to finish faster when I know there’s other levels out there. Even if most people don’t think the way I do, wouldn’t it be nicer to give each release it’s own “time” to really be played and enjoyed?

I see your point but me myself hadn’t even beaten much of the game (I was focusing on 3 stars and golden eggs too much). Though I think that with all the fast paced angrybirds fans out there they really have to keep it this way or they may loose fans plus not everyone has all 4 angrybirds games (I only have 3 I’m missing space lol) so marketing would be rough without rapid updates between games.

GameCenter has updated the icon for AB Seasons. It’s no longer Piglantis. Looks like Back to School is just a week or two away!

I can’t wait for the levels!
I assume the backround in the pic. will match the backround you see while playing the levels.
Will the levels be released one every day like for Christmas and the summer picnic episode?

We don’t know that.

By Theawsomeman

I don’t really no but I think this is the first time gamecenter updated the icon before the game

Rank: Fling King with 4195 points

No, I am pretty sure the Piglantis icon showed up before the actual release and I believe Cherry Blossom did as well.

GameCenter must always update before the actual app. The GameCenter logo is updated at the developer’s whim. The app must always take longer.

I wonder why they only updated the icon but did not add a new leaderboard.

GameCenter can be updated at whim. Could just be a temporary thing.

I noticed that 1:50s into the movie you see what looks like a playing card on the pigs helmet. Can anyone explain this?

This is a rather adult joke and rather hilarious that Rovio included it.

In WWII, US Airborne divisions would be designated with playing card symbols to tell them apart. Later during the Viet Nam war, soldiers would put playing cards in their camouflage holder band on their helmets for various reasons. The most common card is the Ace of Spades, or “death card.”

More recently, in the show Band of Brothers, an HBO WWII drama, the soldiers were shown with the Ace of Spades in their helmet band. So that is the parallel here with the helmet pig.

Like Pink. Even though she will so far be the first official girl of the flock, I think she’ll get along well with Orange and the Blues.

Speaking of Qixi, for those uninformed, is the Chinese equivalent of Tanabata involving the same legend of a pair of celestial lovers who can only meet on the night of the seventh day on the seventh month because they focused more on each other than on their duties. The only difference here is the date. Qixi is celebrated in August because the seventh day on the seventh month in the Chinese calendar usually falls in mid-August. But many Japanese did away with Chinese calendar and adopted the Gregorian calendar, so they ended up celebrating Tanabata literally on July 7.

That’s great to know. Thanks for the information. Just another reason of why our theory was wrong.

as opposed to figuratively on July 7th? ;)
