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!

what about the boomerang and the egg bird ??

By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Please don’t double-post. And honestly, I don’t expect these birds to end up in AB:Space. The zero-gravity would render their abilities moot.

In space, without any method of acquiring delta vee, then yes, those two birds would be powerless. However, one can easily argue:

1. Delta vee is acquired by way of the slingshot.
2. Their powers could be utilized in and around a planet with an air and gravity environment.

So, while it is unlikely, it is at least possible. Not that I’m in any way advocating for those birds in AB:Sp, but I thought I’d try to think up a possibility for those who do want those birds.

I’ll free with 2. Number 1 would be far more unnatural. But at the same time, what about this franchise draws from personal experience?

Rank: Master Slinger with 7205 points
By TruckDriver (@truckdriver)

If it helps the ol’ #1, then think of it as kinetic energy transferred to the bird via the elasticity of the slingshot. I was tempted to make an argument for mechanical energy transfer, but let’s face it, a slingshot really ain’t all that much of a machine!

And it’s funny that several of us here, myself included, have posted in all seriousness, equating AB physics to the natural world. But hey, it’s all about having fun, though individual definitions of fun may differ.

and space.angrybirds.com will get updated so they could add orange bird to “meet the flockers” section. They might add more comics too!

Rank: Sling God with 28465 points

If they do, we will likely add it to that post (for completion) and include a link on the announcement post.

If needed, I will add a supplementary video to Lesson 2, but only if his gameplay is significantly different.

Sorry, but another question: Since they should update the space website,(specifically meet the flockers.)they would have to create another poster.(like red, Ca-caw!, and Ice, Frossh!) And if so, what would Orange bird’s “sound” be ( Ca-caw!, Smash!, Bip Bap Bop!, etc.)Any awesome guesses?

Profile photo of DoritoRank: Champion with 3420 points
By Dorito (@dorito)

Okay, so based on the picture with the “black hole” sucking the pigs up, and the “Best Update Ever” picture, featuring the antenna egg with a sort of a black hole in the background, I think that the antenna egg will also be playable, and its power may be that it creates a sort of black hole which sucks everything in its radius into it. Just a guess, of course.

Rank: Master Slinger with 6910 points

i think the same dorito, maybe its a sub. for the white bird

Rank: Slinger with 1075 points

In the ABSp game files, I’ve noticed there’s a lot of unused sprites such as OB’s sprites, the snowman head (Like the “pleasant company”‘s logo), the WB egg bomb and its egg-shell breaking debris, A purple sunglasses(?), Fat Pig’s laughing animation, the pigs’ “stick tongue” animation, that old wrapped Utopia planet (leftover), Amazing Alex planet, and such that i can’t list here.
I guess they’d be used for the next update (I hope so)

Rank: Sling God with 28465 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Quite a few of those are in fact used. You can see the WB’s “bomb” if you pause the screen just right. The sunglasses are likely from Summer Pignic, either in-game or credits. Etc.

Also, from a programming point of view, it’s better to have a few extra images than too few. Never know when something could be useful.

Rank: Slinger with 1075 points

I think so too, i guess some of them are leftovers from the previous update/game.

Sorta, but the SE shoots debris away from it, while my theory is that this might just suck everything into it.

Rovio says they do not answer queries about release dates, they act on more of a “when it’s done enough” mentality on this front, so I hate to start the downer, but they might hold off on releasing any update(s).

Normally they first add new achievements in Game Center before zhe update comes. Or do you think “the best update ever” won’t have any new achievements?

By DocTonyNYC (@doctonynyc)

@chriss, If an update is a continuation of an existing episode (e.g., new levels for Utopia), there may not be new achievements. Also, given that we don’t know when an update will come, new achievements could still be added before said update is available for download.

Which.. is all that science is. Theories. Until proven of course… we speculate that a star, upon collapsing creates a black hole.. but do we really know? Have we seen it happen? Can we duplicate it?

Well.. until then, we can guess.. and use our imagination to it’s fullest! Rovio.. could, at will, cause a bird to collapse causing a black hole.. (in theory).
