Angry Birds Seasons Year of the Dragon Update Out Now

No complaints on our end, as Angry Birds Seasons Year of the Dragon v2.2.0 has been released on iOS, PC, Mac, Symbian^3, and Android via the Android Market and Amazon Appstore! The update should land on other platforms soon and we will update this post as they come online. We say “no complaints” because in the teaser video (click to see that post), Rovio announced that the update would land on the 20th. Apparently, they meant around midnight in Shanghai, since it is only the 19th in most of the world.

In any event, this update features some amazing new content, which we’ve broken down below:

  • 15 new levels complete with animated fireworks, awesome new music, and the Mighty Dragon!  The leaderboard is up and so are the 3 star and Mighty Dragon walkthroughs!
  • Introducing the Mighty Dragon! That’s right. The Mighty Eagle has been replaced by the ferocious — yet, not too powerful — Mighty Dragon!  You summon him the same way you would the Mighty Eagle. Just tap the icon and your slingshot is loaded with a red fish. Fling the fish and watch as the Mighty Dragon flies in and loops around causing massive destruction (RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!).

    In addition, the Mighty Dragon will be available for free for iOS, Android, and Symbian users (read: you don’t have to purchase it and you don’t need to have the Mighty Eagle). Unfortunately, it looks Mac and PC won’t be able to harness the Mighty Dragon, which is likely due to implementation hurdles.

  • There is one hidden Golden Egg, and the 3-star item appears to be a “Big Banner”. If you need help finding it, check out the Year of the Dragon Golden Egg page.
  • Fireworks that, when hit, fly around the screen and trigger a small explosion.
  • No new achievements! This is not too surprising since Seasons is nearly out of space on GameCenter achievements.
  • Pro Tip: Both golden fish (seems to be a koi) and red lanterns are worth 3,000 points!

We will continue to update this post as the update arrives on more platforms.  For now, we want to know your thoughts.

Why is it I still didn’t get 2.2.0 update for symbian via in-game update & nokia store? Any update download link? I’m using C6-01 Belle.

By NDM

I tried it yesterday but I also couldn’t update AB Seasons via in-game button or OVI-Store. I’m still using Symbian Anna (Nokia C7)

By Donna

On the iPad , if you clear a level and only get a single star you have unlimited use of the ME. If I use it before I clear, I have to wait a while before it is available again.

Please use the “Reply” buttons to keep threads intact.

I’m not sure what to tell you. I can see it in the Nokia store.

I understand your frustration but I don’t know what you are expecting us to do. We don’t work for Rovio. We just report things as we see them.

Again everyone, there’s nothing I can do. I don’t work for Rovio. Try talking to them.

Per Rovio:

At the moment Year of the Dragon update is available for Fate 500 only, stay tuned for more news!

By NDM

Yeah – the in game update was there for a day (N8 belle) but now I suddenly “have the latest version” without Dragons – talk about a teaser! :) No worries, my Belle update went sour and after some resets I once again have 0 stars in all levels of ABO, Seasons and RiO (instead of having *** in all). I personally do not mind that one bit!

By david lin

It’s not a banner, it’s a kite!

Exactly. We specifically asked Rovio.

I don’t believe Rovio have issued any news about release dates for other devices yet. Slim may know more.

I have seasons for the nook color. What updates have come out for this version? How can i get them?

Rank: Sling God with 28510 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

I believe the most recent update for Seasons on NOOK Color is “Wreck the Halls” — v2.1.0.

And that’s the exact reason why I hacked into my Nook to make it an android.
