The Angry Birds are Headed to “South Hamerica”! A LONG Awaited Angry Birds Seasons Update Coming Thursday

Angry Birds Rio South Hamerica Teaser Image
Yesterday, Rovio shared the following Tweet.

We originally speculated that this may actually be a hint to a Rio update (see below); however, today Rovio confirmed that it is actually a teaser for a new — long overdue — Seasons update!

Well, of course we have absolutely no clue what Rovio is teasing here — if anything! There’s two sides to every coin, so let’s take a shot in the dark:

Clearly the image references about Brazil on so many levels: The soccer balls (or futbols, if you want), the match on TV, the statues of Christ the Redeemer in the background. Of course, Angry Birds Rio is set in Rio de Janeiro. And the animation seems to emulate more of the AB Rio style than any other app. So maybe it’s a tease toward a forthcoming update to Angry Birds Rio?

On the other hand, it could very easily be a reference about the World Cup itself. After all, it’s one of the most popular events in the world. And next week’s Angry Birds Friends Tournament is called the “Bird Cup Championship”. So maybe it’s just another tease about that?

What do you think? Are you excited for a new Seasons update?

I hope Seasons to start with!
Than anything else will do :)
To be honest, personally, i’m starting to feel Friends a bit boring..

@joeyba I agree! We need some more Seasons updates. I don’t care what it is as long as it’s somthing.

I’m seeing Rio de Janeiro in back-ground. also the story AB Seasons is on Piggy Island, FIFA World Cup 2014 is on Brazil -> Rio de Janeiro, so this should be an AB Rio update.

I hope it’s a new Angry Birds Seasons update! That game needs an update like a student in June needs a summer vacation!

I wish that Seasons will have a new ep! D:

Probably just the Bird Cup, however a Rio update is always welcome and a Seasons update even more. Personally, I’d like to see a Seasons 2 game launch.

I think that is a new seasons’ update. I wish that is!

I hope it is Rio, but since it has pigs, maybe ABO? Either way, an update to either would be welcome!

Oo, oo, I got it. It’s a new app, “Angry Birds: Best of Friends”. It features the best levels from Angry Birds Friends, starting with the upcoming Bird Cup Championship. The best part is that the first 1000 downloads gets a free trip to Rio De Janeiro, AND tickets to all the future World Cup events FOR LIFE!

Dream big, baby!

I bet it’s an update to all AB games, adding a new bird:

Name: Munch
Color: Reddish-orange with white stripes
Power: Bites ferociously at pigs as it flies past

By Morph416

Hopefully Rio!!

Or…… since they haven’t done much lately with Seasons… could be one for that too.

@fenikus made a good observation regarding the teaser pic: There are no pigs in Rio.

By Mike (@erika-rieger)

(@kelani) I think it is Rio because think about it the Christ statue, the World Cup, the futbols it’s so obvious. Maybe the pigs will finally be introduced they introduced Stella so why not the pigs also I’m a big fan of the pigs!

Good thinking but they will never put pigs in rio. i hope it is a seasons update.

May be Angry Birds Football, with birds as players. It’s kinda like Top Eleven.

My first thought, ABo…
Reasons being:
1. The image shows both piggies and eggs, more commonly associated with ABo
2. The footballs in a nest reminded me straight away of the RMF egg defender bonus episode where every level features eggs in a nest.
3. The announcement comes just weeks after Rovio unexpectedly updated the free/demo version of AB for iOS, the first update in over a year, ask yourself why they needed to update it?
4. The caption states “the birds are flying to South Hamerica”, ABr is already set in Rio so why would the birds need to fly there?
5. Then of course there’s the name “South Hamerica” – why add a third “Ham” style name episode to ABs when ABo just has the one, “Ham ‘em High”?

I could of course be wrong, and I’m sure we’ll find out soon enough, but for now, I’m sticking with my instincts and will welcome any update to any of the main 6 AB apps. ;)

My vote is on the Bird Cup Championship. A promo to support the Friend’s game.

But….it would be great if Rio had a device game update release in the championship week of the real soccer games. Wishful thinking

So much for guessing from the obvious.
Glad there is an update for a device game. These are always exciting and the anticipation of a release is the fun part.

A long time ago Rovio noticed that wants release a new Brown Bird for Angry Birds. I hope this update will contain that brown bird.

Profile photo of AhmadRank: Explosive with 2140 points

I was saying this because stella and bubbles were introduced in Seasons however isn’t brown bird going to appear in AB Stella.

I’m happy for the long-time-coming Seasons update, but what season is South Hamerica anyway? :)

Profile photo of JoeyRank: Pig Leader with 10535 points
By Joey (@joeyba)

Fifa World Cup.

Ditto that @dbkraemer
I always thought that the fifa world cup was every four years, as opposed to a seasonal event, but hey ho, at least it’s a new episode/update and not a new app eh? ;)

Curious what new features we get

I’m curious as to whether this episode will be added to ‘seasons 4′ or whether Rovio will introduce ‘seasons 5′; Arctic Eggspedition is going to look mighty lonely if it’s the later.

@leggy Seasons 5 will come on Halloween, as every year. I don’t see why they’ll change the trend this year.

@leggy I agree with @joeyba: The “calendar” seems to switch at Halloween, so I’d expect S4.

Thanks @joeyba and @amslimfordy for the response, a good little tidbit for me to store away for future ABs updates. ;)

Well, about time that we got a new Seasons episode coming soon…its been awhile since the Christmas episode.

For a minute, I almost thought Seasons was going extinct but with this new update, I can kiss that fear goodbye.

I hope Rovio make a new Interface Design for AB Seasons, like AB Rio 2.

I bet the 3rd episode for season 2014 will be the Halloween since we didn’t get one that would have been before the Christmas episode.
