Mysterious Clues in Rovio’s “New Tricks” Video Seem to be Teasing New Games and Updates

With 2013 coming to a close Rovio has released a new teaser video with clues to their 2014 plans scattered throughout. The video features Pro scooter rider Helmeri Pirinen shredding up at the Valli Indoor Park in Helsinki. Between his awesome tricks a few Angry Birds related images appear in various locations. Below I’ve included screenshots of each teaser image. I’ve added my 2 cents about each, but I would love to know what you guys think this show, so leave a comment below. Oh, and as interesting as the teaser images are, I’m also curious why Rovio chose a skatepark as a setting. That seems like it could be a hint in and of itself.

This image seems to show Check, Red, and the Blue birds in a medieval setting, complete with weapons!

What is this? Are we looking at a future update that introduces a new bird> I just don’t recognize this world or that bird sitting next to Stella. Maybe the birds have finally reach Piggy Island.

This bulldozer-looking contraption could simply be a new Angry Birds Go vehicle, but perhaps it’s teasing something brand new?

Rovio New Tricks Teaser Video Chuck Coming Through a Portal

Is this shockwave Chuck or is he trying to take over the skate park by coming in through a portal. Any why is he wearing a headband?

Last buy not least, happy 2014 everyone! I’m as excited as you are to see what Rovio has in store for us. Maybe we’ll finally see that Angry Birds Nest web game as well. :)

A tower defence game for no.1? Each tower will be a coloured slingshot,and the colours represent the birds, and you have to defend the eggs at the end of th path, from pigs. Each tower, including power-ups, will cost Bird coins, which you get after completing each level.

I thought the first pic looked like 3 characters from the old coin-op GAUNTLET….. :)

For some reason I think the first pic is lord of the rings.chuck is gandalf(oh god),red is arargon,and blues are legolas.(the plunger though). Second, a new bird, in birdland? I think its like they went back to the birdland to get some help. So my guess for 2 is new update for ABO. Third, I think its a new track for ABGO, and represented it with a new cart. Fourh, its like an update for ABFriends. Chucks hair looks some kind of rockstar that makes me think theyre bringing the episode that is removed? You know the Green something.

The first picture made me think of the upcoming South Park game, and I had 2 days before I forgot about it completely.

I still would like to see the birds traveling around the globe through time.

There is also some writing on the side of the big black oil can – it looks like its says something like “PALOO” and “THX”. Is this a secret thank-you? I have enlarged and sharpened the image in my profile album if anyone is interested.

I’m not sure what a lot of it means, but look on the barrel (not the one he jumps over, the one a few scenes before that.) There is writing on it, and something that looks remotely like green bird. Also the back of his hoodie has red bird.

I agree, the first image looks all the world like Lord of the Rings. Not a huge Ring fan myself, but could still be good…. as long as it does not involve Telepods! I think I need to update my avatar with a No Telepods symbol…

I am extremely intrigued! This is the first time I encounter such a situation like this and Rovio really lives up its name as the “King of Teasers”! Here are my thoughts of the seperate teasers:

The first picture, IMO, likely indicates a entirely new medieval game. It DOES resemble LOTR, thus it is a likely possibility. I have just recovered from Death Star II, and am loooking forward!

The second one is a bit more tricky, the first thing that came into mind is Toons, but I don’t think that Rovio would tease us just for one EPISODE of toons…a new bird is definitely apparent, and apparently has a crush on Stella (not sure if this is true though =P), thus it might just be an update in one of Rovio’s games (ABO, ABS).

The third one is obvious, a new cart in ABGO!

The fourth one is quite obvious also, it seems that after Red and Bomb, Chunck is getting his own episode in ABO! And it seems to be his iconic lightning ability! Not sure what it would actually do, but one might guess that it may be similar to his ability in AB Space.

Looking forward to 2014, and happy new year guys! =)

I’m not sure if Chuck would get an ability like he had in ABSp, because Red already got a similar power to Space Chuck.

Me too, @razorblood. But why you’re saying “Space Chuck” instead of “Lazer Bird”?

I think that the second picture is meant to be “The Rise of Stella the Pink Bird” or maybe “Princess Stella’s Story”.

@amslimfordy: I just installed version 1.2.6 of AB Star Wars II. When I open the game, it sais “you are logged in as guest”. And in addition to that, there is a new achievement “Galactic Network: sign into Rovio Account”.
But I have no idea how I can log into the Rovio account in AB Star Wars II. Can you help me?

It looks like lord of the rings. Chuck looks like Gandalf. The three blue birds look like they could represent an elf.Red looks like he could pass as a dwarf.

@erika-rieger The clues. We now know the image of the birds in the tree is for the new Stella game. So now it is just the three others that we don’t know.

I think it is from the upcoming Transformers game.

I think the Piggy Bulldozer is teasing an upcoming update on Angry Birds Go. The Stella on a tree now clearly makes sense with Angry Birds Stella.
Chuck with his headband maybe means an upcoming update on Angry Birds (original), just like Red’s Mighty Feathers and Short Fuse. The one with the medieval birds maybe teasing the game that Rovio just posted on Youtube (The next epic game…).

Red, Chuck and Blues are teaser of Angry Birds Epic, Stella and other bird is teaser of Angry Birds Stella, Bulldozer is teaser of Sub Zero, and Chuck is maybe a clue to the mysterious egg.

Shockwave Chuck: ABo update

I think Shockwave Chuck is related to the Chuck Tournament
