Angry Birds Space Red Planet Update Coming This Fall

If you love Angry Birds Space then you don’t have too long to wait for another update, as Rovio just released the video above teasing a, “Red Planet” update this fall (don’t forget, we just had a massive update!). We don’t have a lot of info at the moment, but as you can see by the text below this update is connected to NASA’s “Curiosity” rover, which is scheduled to land — gently we hope — on the Red Planet in the next 3 days. Now if only us humans could go there (wink, wink, hint, hint NASA).

After travelling 352 million miles, the Curiosity Mars rover touches down on the Red Planet. What will it find?

That’s correct – it’ll be a long wait now that we know it’s coming…

By Takacs David

actually, some other things will come this fall too:angry birds animated series(52 parts :O) and philadelphia eagle too!

By Takacs David

if fall begins on september 21. what does that “in the next 3 days ” and “beetween aug. 5 and 6″ mean?
when is it coming…?

hahahahaha – @playdbird – You beat me! I was madly typing my response for “Takacs David” and when I posted saw your’s already sitting there. I’m an ENFP (Myers-Briggs) so I have problems with one-liners and bullets. I might sometimes give too much description. I am what I am.

That means that NASA’s “Curiosity” rover (real space rover) will be actually landing on Mars by 06 August. The ‘Red Planet’ release for Angry Birds Space will happen at some point between September and December (before Christmas). Rovio doesn’t normally give specific dates for releases anymore because that has caused too much frustration with fans if the release ends up being delayed. Better to just give a range to expect the update. It’s all fine – we’ll love it once it hits our devices! Developing games with this much wonderful game play and superb graphics is not easy to do and it takes time to do the post-creation testing to fix any immediate bugs or glitches. We should all be patient – it will come. When waiting for new releases, I just go back and try to improve scores on the other AB games and levels. Time flies and so do our sweet but Angry Birds. Tweet!

It’s an app on FB that is very close to AB Friends. There is a leaderboard and ten levels to play. There’s no ME or Powerups.

So for upcoming AB, we can look forward to:
AB Philidelphia Eagles
AB Space Red Planet

And speculating:
Maybe something with the Girly Bird (Pink Female Bird)?
Surf and Turf 3 for Classic game?
Pigini Beach for Classic game?
Maybe Halloween for Seasons? It was the launch season and the first season duplicated..

That’s from Rio.

Profile photo of Dr. OmegaRank: Gold Flinger with 7805 points
By Dr. Omega (@dr-omega)

There are multiple “generic” caged birds in Rio, but the “Girly Bird” first appeared as an add-on character for the AB Action Game. It’s basically bean bags you throw on a mat and knock over pig fortresses made of wood in your yard. She appears to be of Rovio design and obviously had to be approved for that game during the licensing agreements.

Then someone found a new plush coming out in the fall of her. You can tell she is not the Rio generic birds by her blue eyes. A trademark of the “Girly Bird” from the Action Game that makes her different than all other birds so far.

It’s complete supposition that she may appear in a game, but it seems odd that she would appear in two licensed products and nothing else. I figured she was a one-off for the yard game, but with the appearance of the plush too, it has me thinking otherwise.

Here’s the Action Game image (scroll down a bit):
http://www.tactic.net/angrybirds

Here’s the Generic Rio Birds (note black eyes and a single head feather, not two. Also, no light pink colored bird):

It’s may not necessarily be Mars in the game. It could just be a planet with a lot of red as an homage..

I noticed that this will be the fourth full planet in the AB Space solar system, just like our solar system!

By Takacs David

good eye!
so that means, mercury is pig bang (weird name for a planet anyways)
venus is cold cuts (ironic, venus is said to be the hottest planet in our solar sistem)
earth is utopia (but it’s not THAT good to live here)
I’m looking for new stuff on red planet : space egg levels, level number (might beat least 20 cuz only moons will have so few) boss fight, and the main story actually

Profile photo of Angry_BrownBirdRank: Slinger with 1215 points
By Angry_BrownBird (@supermad_bluebird)

You’re wrong. Most of the planets aren’t based on the planets in our solar system, the only reason we will get a mars update is because curiosity is supposed to land soon.

But still, isn’t it kind of ironic that the mars update will be the 4th planet? I mean come on, doesn’t that look a little ironic to you?

Profile photo of DoritoRank: Champion with 3420 points

No; it seems like the Origins video and the in-game story differ from each other. In the Origins video, the birds leave Earth to rescue their three eggs. In the game, however, the birds lived in space, and they try to rescue the eggsteroid.

Profile photo of BillRank: Champion with 3655 points
By Bill (@dollarbill2208)

Saturn would be cool. Beautiful planet. Only problem would be there’s no solid surface there, and all the birds and pigs would just fall through the atmosphere until they get crushed by the pressure. Perhaps one of Saturn’s moons with Saturn simply in the backdrop would be a better idea. Titan maybe, with thick atmosphere removed.

Profile photo of nascarboyRank: Explosive with 2105 points
By nascarboy (@nascarboy)

There is a little solid surface there. The core is iron, which is solid, but not enough for the pigs to make a hideout on.

I would really want to see Ceres, in the asteroid belt.

even if they reach earth, the space series WILL continue

This new level strikes at one’s imagination with Mars. All of the interesting landscapes, background and structures they could come up with from the Mars information and data.
What is also interesting is that the folks at Rovio are busy and actively adding to our game playing entertainment and fun. The best part is that they and inturn we are not becoming stagnant. Looking forward to the new addition to Space.

I think it might be the ice bird because the shadow on the clip looked like a cube. Plus mars is icy so maybe mars is the ice birds home planet.?

nope, ice birds home is cold cuts (i think)

Actually,Ice Bird’s homeworld is the Eggsteroid,after the pigs take control of the planet and steal the eggsteroids,he decides to find help to recover his home planet,he protects one of his planet’s remains,and that’s the part where King Pig chases him to earth and the part where he meets the birds :D

By Takacs David

where did’ya get all this info?

well then,maybe cold cuts was an earth-like planet before but king pig smashed him to the ground too many times… :P
