Angry Birds Seasons Circus Themed Update Coming Soon! Exclusive Clue and Details


Happy World Circus Day everyone! New Info about the Forthcoming Angry Birds Seasons Update!

To celebrate this awesome day Rovio shared the image above on their Facebook page. Well, this image definitely takes some of the mystery out of what the theme of the next Angry Birds Seasons episode will be. Grab your tickets and antihistamine! It looks like the circus is coming to town. At this time we don’t know what to expect from the actual gameplay, but we will know soon enough.

Fun fact! If you look closely at the top of the big top their is a mustache pig suspended by a bunch of balloons. What a cruel prank.

Update May 3rd: Portals!

Rovio has released a “live trailer”, if you want to call it that, of the forthcoming update. As many suspected, this episode will include portals! In fact, a little additional information from Rovio to us: “Anything can go through portals. Blocks, birds, pigs… ;)”. Be sure to check out the Vine video below, and keep your eyes peeled for this update!

Below is the info from the original post

Angry Birds Seasons Spring Update Image Teaser Exclusively for AngryBirdsNest

It’s a happy day here at The Nest! As some of you may know, Angry Birds Seasons is hands down, no questions asked, unequivocally my favorite app in the Angry Birds franchise. From the different and unique themes, to the “Pro Tip” bonus items, it’s just fantastic.

Long story short, Rovio knew that we us here at the Nest have been chomping at the bit for information about the next episode in Angry Birds Seasons (it’s been awhile!). They have said on Twitter that a new episode is coming, but they haven’t given any details.

Until now…

Spring is in the Air

The next update for Angry Birds Seasons (Episode 16) will be a springtime episode, and is expected to be extremely festive. (Sorry to those of you in the southern hemisphere, but perhaps you can think fondly of this past Spring and all the fun times you had.) Also, according to Rovio, there will be some “pretty interesting trick shots” in this episode as well.

So what do we think? Hard to say, but before we wager any guesses we should first take a good look at the image at the top of this post. It was created exclusively for the Nest by Rovio (thanks!) as way of giving us a clue or two about what is to come. What do you see?

It seems like the general theme will focus around those oh-so-pleasant spring nights. Based on the astronomy calendar, it looks like April and May will be pretty busy in the night sky. Items of interest include Astronomy Day (April 20th), two meteor showers (April 21st / 22nd and May 4th / 5th), a partial lunar eclipse (April 25th), and an annular solar eclipse (May 10th).

So, a nighttime spring theme is one guess, but why does it look like the text is getting pulled into a ginormous black hole? Will the birds be sucked in and transported to another dimension? Also, notice how the image is also washed out / heavily saturated. This is not the typical Rovio style. Maybe it was done that way on purpose, or maybe not. Either way, my head is spinning as to the possibilities.

Lastly, we also shouldn’t forget about Summer Pignic. It obviously had a warm summer theme and contained lots of outlandish levels (though I don’t recall any black holes). It was “advent calendar”-style though, so maybe the forthcoming update will be similar.

“A New Hope” for Power-Ups

Pardon my weak Star Wars joke, as by no means am I trying to diminish the significance of this. Perhaps I have a soft spot for wanting the episode to be more important.

Despite the Game Center restrictions on the number of allowable leaderboards, Angry Birds Seasons will now include the long-awaited, long-sought-after visual distinction between Power Up scores and “clean” scores. This distinction, according to Rovio, will mimic the style in Angry Birds Space.

I know some users will be excited, others may be skeptical. But, assuming the system works like the one in Space, I think all users should be happy with the end result. Let’s also add that, so long as people don’t go around bashing Rovio with “Why can’t you do this in the others?!”, I think we can expect to see the system rolled out to the other versions in due time.

So with that, I say here: Thank you, Rovio, for listening. We really appreciate this.

Ok, now I’m absolutely confused. Putting it simply, I don’t see ANY connection between the two teaser images. I do not see any sign of a circus in the first teaser image, and I do not see any hint of portals or any sign of how it is going to appear in the new update. The most confusing thing is that I do not know how a circus themed update LINKS to ABS. Is it a holiday? Cause I did not know anything about it. I’m perfectly willing to accept the fact that they are two completely different updates–one Rio and the other Space.

Again, no offence intended in any way, the above is purely my own opinion.

The “portal” is likely tied to magic, such as the classic “pulling a rabbit out of a hat” sort of trick.

Its all about magic, in the first teaser image you see stars, in de second circus teaser all about magic, hats,powder,clown-pig.

Classic circus included a midway or sideshows. Don’t know how the two images are related but the latest with the Piggo the clown seems pretty cool. Can’t wait.

1) It’s inconsistent. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t. You never can tell.
2) Rovio has been really quiet about that. I don’t think they’ve said anything since the initial announcement.

@SpaceMaster There have been a lot (a lot) of unofficial / torrent / malware versions of Angry Birds out there for PC. Fortunately, most users here who play on their PC have the sense to download the legitimate version from angrybirds.com.

Maybe the Magical dust in ABF is available in this episode. From this teaser I assume that the levels are created so, we could expect the update next week. Cool foreground and background. I notice the new blocks and ‘particles’. Now I wonder what the music would be like.

It’s a circus theme so the music will be funny

Am having a bit of a problem feeling bad for your “long” wait, @Pro-AngryBirds_2013 and @Sarah. Those of us on PC platform haven’t received Rio Market Mayhem or Star Wars Cloud City yet. Want to talk long waits? Got ya beat…..What’s up with that anyway? Any word on the PC updates anyone?

@twylatime According to the latest tweets from Rovio, they say that they are having a bit technical issues that they are resolving. I think they should be round the corner, I guess.

By Gbird

I was wondering myself what the delay was. I figured it must have been some technical issue or something. Hopefully they’ll resolve it very soon. Also PC and Mac haven’t received the last chapter of Bad Piggies for ABo.

I hope we get a double surprise on Thursday. A new game ABF for mobile and this update which will probably be supercool and super-fun considering the theme (Circus and Magic). I really like the Halloween and Christmas updates, but I think this is going to be the best yet on Seasons.

It has been a torturous wait. However, Rovio really isn’t keen to be a 2-in-1 type (with the exception of AB Space and Original being updated at the same time last month). I don’t think we should be really expecting it, but who knows? Maybe they’ll surprise us.

I ask Rovio about Seasons update and they said this week is about Angry Birds Friends. Judging by that reply it will be at least next week until ABS update lands. It’s a bummer but hopefully we can count on it next week sometime.

I wonder if the episode might be a loose take on Cinco de Mayo? I think that is a stretch but Rovio has been stringing us along for weeks now and I think they will be sending it out very soon and that is a holiday that is happening now. Maybe Rovio will break with the Thursday release schedule and introduce it this weekend. One can only hope.

When magic was mentioned the first thing I thought was magic box from CTR. I was pretty close, all this portal action resmble magic hats action from CTR, BTW I like it.

By hinarei (@hinarei)

you’re right, @cosmo2503 :D looks like it’ll operate the same way. Will these portals be set in the level already or will we get a new “portal/ringmaster” bird so we have the ability to create our own portals?

also, song that went through my head when I first read this was the theme to Sonic 3’s circus level, Carnival Night :)

@Hinarei Thats a intresting question about how portals will introduce by Rovio. I go with, a new magical bird, which can create his/her own portals. That would be very great :-D
