Man, Rovio has gotten so darn good about teasing us with what’s to come. Today is no exception! On the heels of the amazing release of Bad Piggies comes this perplexing image that they just posted to their Facebook page. The caption simply reads:
The birds are about to go on an adventure… but where? Clue tomorrow!
So I guess we will know more tomorrow, but who wants to wait a whole day. Not this guy! Well, unfortunately, like you, I don’t know what this is, but it’s fun to speculate. Here is what I see:
- Something covered by fabric. Duh!
- It’s seems to be space, as I see stars in the background
- There seems to be a faint outline of an atmosphere behind it
- I see what look like bird feet sticking out from the cloth (right side is the most prominent). As @pigbob stated, upon closer examination they looked to be webbed
- Okay, maybe it’s not in space. It also could be underwater, or standing on top of the water.
- By playing with the brightness and contrast @dr-omega found the secret “Hi!” (click for image) that is hidden in the bird’s body. Nice work!
Now, with that in mind, what does it remind me of? Well, my very first thought was it looked like a robe a Jedi in Star Wars would wear. I admit, there is just no way that is what it is. Right!?! In all seriousness, maybe it’s a teaser for a new Angry Birds Red Planet update? Though, if that were the case, it’s not really an “adventure” because they’ve already been there. Maybe it’s a new bird?
Well there you have it. I have no idea! But it’s fun to speculate. Thanks to @kcox2116 for tipping me off about this.
Rovio has announced the launch of a new Angry Birds book app to be unveiled on October 11, 2012. Could this be the Adventure teased by Rovio?
I hope for a brand new Game!!!
@Dr.Omega, Cool finding. It seems like it is going to be e-book application like Apple’s iBook exclusively for Angry Birds and Bad Piggies related contents.
Teasing of angry birds adventure game maybe?
maybe its a pig and not a bird…
…and the hooded pig is where the birds are going!
Maybe or hopefully the 5th new game for this year. That would be great :-)
That it is what I thing so . This game could be the # 5 of the year and final . Some people or players count the Web AA as a game # 3 but I thing is not…!!!
I also agree with you but that will be the last for this Year because there isn’t much time left this Year :-)
upon zooming, looks like a died bird, with a rock and fabric on top of it
with a happy hi lol
Hmm… Looks like an egg shape to me. Hatchling? Maybe it’s gonna like “The birds found an egg, clothing it to incubate the egg, then it hatches”.
I’m still waiting for an update for AB Rio free and for the last Surf & Turf episode in AB Classic. And they also promised updates for Amazing Alex. I don’t want new things all the time. They first should finish existing games.
I’m also waiting for the update of AB classic and AB space, oh and also amazing Alex that is not yet available for pc :/
Hi Chris : I do waiting for the same as you: but mostly for AA just because I do not have the achievement of 50 points even that I finished all the levels and the other matters I can not share with my friends the Blue line on my game AA does not work.
Whatever it be it is well covered. Smart tactics from Rovio to tease fans this way and cool from you for sharing with us who are not “facebooky” people.
Well if this is a new game(OMG please let it be a new game) I am thinking Star Wars.5 games,could this be it?The end is near(I mean the end of 2012,not the world).We will see.
OMG, I once mentioned that I’d like to see AB and Star Wars union. When it is about StarTrek and Star Wars I am always for StarWars. That would be grand.
For me the pic above looks like a New bird in Space hatching from an egg :-) I know i have a stupid fantasy :-)
Maybe it’s STAR WARS…. If it is I’m trying not to freak out. Jedi Robes? Stars in the background? Maybe it’ll be a movie spin-off of Angry Birds Space!
I don’t think there are feet sticking out at all. I zoomed to 400 percent on my PC and you can easily see it’s just the blanket rippled around the ? and the “Hi!” is also visible at that magnification.
I’m guessing it’s a pig. Hey @birdleader, how about doing a mini competition to see who guesses what’s under da hoodie? Winners could maybe receive 20 extra points.
May be a little late for that though. We should get some answers today.
Good idea. If any of the existing commenters get it right I give them 50 points. Sorry new commentors, competition is closed pending news from Rovio
definitely related to Star Wars. Maybe Star Trek
it is a bird in the updated picture
I think it’s going to be an expansion of Angry Birds Space. Rovio has promised more levels.
Really exciting news! If I would bet it would be a Star Wars app or something with all that darkness and that mysterious cloak! But if not, I think it would be an update to AB Original.
It looks like a Star Wars update of some sort.
At the bottom of the page:
Times Square, New York, October 8th, 10am EST.
HINT: Head to Toys R Us at 8am EST!
This is really intriguing.
Oh my, what going to happen next? Birds carrying LightSabers?
Nice find, @sparty83. Just very very disappointing.
@dr-omega Why are you disappointed?
I’m not a fan of crossing canon. This can’t be party of the legitimate Angry Birds’ story and it’s obviously not part of real Star Wars continuity.
I think Gene Roddenberry summed it up well when people kept asking him if Kirk and Spock, et.al. were going to appear in Star Trek the Next Generation – (paraphrasing)- You can like to eat beef barley soup. You can like to eat Tomato soup. But mix the two together in a pot and it’s not going to taste very good.
No disappointing the least! At least not to this fanboy.
Well,looks like our dream did came true,Angry Birds Star Wars!On October 8 \(^_^)/
That’s Jedi LightSabers handle in that photo… So definitely star wars. But question is, is it separate app or an update in ABspace
Just speculating here, but I would guess it’s an update to Space. But with the 6 movie franchise that is Star Wars, it could be a completely seperate app also.
So in other words, I have no clue.
Well the bird doesn’t look like any of the space birds …
Sometimes they introduce new birds when they expand existing games. Remember when they introduced the pink bird with the Angry Birds Seasons back to school expansion?
Maybe under the cloth there is a hatched egg…
I saw the photo. It’s Star Wars! There may even be Darth Vader pigs!
yes, i think this picture is a pig in a darth moul suit or something
So I guess we could change the “But to Where?” part of the title to “To a galaxy far, far away…”
