Orange Bird Popping into Angry Birds Space Soon

It looks like a new Angry Birds Space update is on the horizon and a new character is set to “pop-in” (get the reference)! I don’t have a lot of information at the moment, but based on the teaser image above it’s obvious that the orange bird will make his first appearance in Angry Birds Space. It will definitely be interesting to see if the orange birds power are altered at all and how his powers will be leveraged in the zero-gravity realm of space.

A big thanks to @kcox2116 for tipping me off to this.

Updates! Rovio has released several more images, which we have included here below with their current (thou subject to change) captions as appear on Facebook. Thanks to everyone who did their due diligence in sleuthing!

cool news! Though sometimes hard to predict, he’s a fun bird.

By the shadow covering the moon, don’t you see the eclipse is wearing a mask?

The the eclipse that your talking about is the orange bird. He seems to have bands around him that makes him look like an atom

If he appears un Utopia, he is going to eat this delicious episode because he loves sweets :S.

I wonder if the orange bird won’t be the only new bird coming to AB Space.

i wonder if boomerang is coming

If it does, I’m not playing another level of Space again…

By Takacs David

no way. boomerang effect requires stable gravity. that’s why we don’t have white bird or boomerang bird. even the egg would float around the screen… uncontrollable.

By DocTonyNYC (@doctonynyc)

There are “stable” gravity fields in AB Space, though. More often than not, the pigs and the structures are in gravity fields. While White and Boomerang might not appear in Space, it isn’t because of the absence of stable gravity.

wonder about white bird

Rank: Well Traveled with 1855 points
By DocTonyNYC (@doctonynyc)

What do you wonder, @angryperson? Do you wonder if it might be included eventually, or do you wonder whether it might work or not?

By Takacs David

if you lay an egg with the white bird, you can’t control it anymore. it may hit the ground or bounche off trampolines. gravity effects it, so unless you can shot the egg with a “homing shot” like the lazer bird, it won’t be able to hit what you want it to hit…

As I thought about this a bit more, I realized that it’s actually kind of a silly exercise to wonder if its reslistic thwt a boomerang bird might be able to do its thing in space. We’re talking about birds, being shot by a slingshot, through space at pigs and structures. Somehow questioning the realistic nature of these things doesn’t seem particularly productive.

Very cool!! Can’t wait to pop some pigs with Orangey! Hope they update ABSP soon.

Hmmm…. I doubt Rovio would go on to a new pack of levels before finishing Utopia, so this teaser pic is probably just for fun. Can’t wait to see if he’s any different in Space like the Laser Bird is.

I wish the update come first for Mac users!
Orange Bird is my favourite bird!
So, if he love candy, he will love Utopia World! :D

Mac is a more difficult platform to update.

He certainly does look menacing…. Perhaps using the laser bird to push Orange will be an interesting strategy.
Cant wait!

This is great. A new bird and new levels in ABS. More fun and entertainment for the brain. Orange bird has been interesting because of the way it opens upon activation.

By sparty83 (@sparty83)

Fry Me To The Moon has only 10 levels like Utopia but unlike Utopia, there is no second screen that shows more levels “Coming Soon”. Never the less, it is possible that Fry may get the Orange bird. Just speculation which I know is generally frowned upon, but since both only are 10 level episodes, I thought it should at least be mentioned.

Hmm, usually if Rovio posting images like this, an update will come shortly after it.
I bet the next ABSp update will come this week or next week!

It’s neither a cheat nor is it illegal. The Eagles are free anyway. And that’s how Rovio wanted it. They did not want to give a daily Space Eagle (like the daily gifts in AB Friends).

Chris, you should know better. You are tampering with a device to obtain more of a product that is otherwise sold. You know BirdLeader’s and @AMslimfordy position on this kind of shenanigan, right?

Rank: Sling God with 27410 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Having to tamper with your device in order to obtain something is not illegal but it is a cheat. You have been around long enough to see that I have removed several similar posts in the past month or so.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5915 points

I never saw that you removed helpful tips and tricks.
But maybe you removed them before I saw them. Sometimes you are a quick remover.

So the thoughts of Orange Bird in ABSpace are now true (since most guys here discovered the Orange Birds GFX and developed these thoughts). It’ll be nice to see the new power (will it be another?) or the same.

I like the fact in the photo the Orange Bird is stealing the spotlight to the moon! Hahaha!

Yeah, but still his face can’t be seen from “Here”

I saw the picture of orange bird a few days ago after Angry Birds Space was released
i thought it was just a fake photo but it seems real

AMslimfordy,can you tell me how on earth people can get the photos so advanced???

Rank: Slinger with 1075 points

It might be because his sprite sheet is inside the game files.

I don’t think so….
I still don’t get why he gets it…

I wonder how..

Did that photo matches that of the picture above? If not, perhaps it’s a fan-art :).

It is just an eye-shaped pencil mark or something. It doesn’t look like an angry bird eye.

OF COURSE it is… but what happened with the birds’ eggs? they had some colorful baseball hats when the king pig stole them… again.

Watch ” angry birds space” on youtube. The Hats didnt go trough the wormhole. As you van see on The vid.

i said they HAD hats.
so this antenna egg might be one of the real eggs that king pig stole.
if yes…where are the rest?
