Angry Birds Seasons Year of the Dragon Teaser Video

We have known since the calendar turned to 2012 that the next episode of Angry Birds Seasons would revolve around Chinese New Year and the Year of the Dragon. Rovio was very non-discrete about this, announcing it in their “Happy New Year” video (click to see our original “Coming Soon” post). While there are still questions about which level update will land next (feel free to take our poll), Rovio has just released the official “Year of the Dragon” teaser video, seen below.

Now, let us note the two most important things. First, it appears that the episode will indeed be called “Year of the Dragon”. And second, and most importantly, the update will be landing on January 20, so keep your eyes peeled! A quick disclaimer: We are not responsible if the update does not land on your particular device on the 20th.

do we get 15 or 30 levels in one shot this time or one level per day (the offical CNY holidays last for 7 days and even up to 15 days for some manufacturing entities)??

can’t wait !!!!!!!!!!!!

Unknown at the moment, although I would assume it would be all in one go, given as the last world was a calendar-style one. That’s only a guess though! As to the number of levels – who knows! :)

It’s going to be 30 levels and maybe some bonus levels. No update has 15 unless the chapter is split into 2 update.This will 100% no happen with a ABS update, ABR & ABO have in the past.

What about Hogs and Kisses, Go Green, and Easter? Those were 15+3.

No it’s not, It was just my guess as many of use AB Fans guess on what will happen with future update. ABR & ABO are the only ones hat have chapters split in 15 level updates.

Is that a definite? So just like some of the other updates we will get half and half? 15 at first then the next 15 later ?? And when do u think its coming?ty for help:)

Even if it is three 15 level boards you will be able to play them all with this update…granted you at least one star the previous level. AB Seasons in rumored to hit on Fri. Jan. 20…Can’t wait!!

I just think that Rovio has had enough time to develop 30+ episodes for this update. The 15+3 updates were fun but a big disappointment when you can get 3 stars in one day.

By Pim van Tongeren

Is there a reason why abs gets updated so fast and why abo so slow.

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Only 15-30 levels, instead of conceptually creating 45 maybe.

By JimGenious

And right now, i think there is have to be considered the Game Center issue

By JimGenious

And because of that, i wonder, maybe Rovio will release ABO 2, or some kind of sequel in a different app?

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

That’s not clear. Logic would suggest no, since one would not update ABo to v2.0.0 without the intention of moving forward within the existing app.

By JimGenious

Very good point Slim, we´ll have to wait then!

By bigbrotherbird97 (@bigbrotherbird97)

I don’t think they will make an Angry Birds original 2. We can just play the game without new achievements, right? That was the issue between Angry Birds and gamecenter

Good example for Nokia Phones!!I’m waiting for the ABO new update 1 month ago but still no anything…I starting to likely throw away my Nokia phone… :(

By PopOutAngryBirds

Good idea Hudson! Get the iPhone 4S instead. :) Quick updates, at least. And a cool phone.

What? Today is Wednesday. Then Thursday and Friday. That is two days.

Oh yeah! But I must be so used to my time zone and country that I didn’t quite understand what he said. Thanks slim.

When it’s Friday in some places, this does not mean that the update will be there already. It must be Friday in Finland as well.
So it was correct to say that it’s still two days.

Rank: Champion with 3295 points

Its Thursday in Finland now, I believe

Rank: Sling God with 32110 points

Yes, 1am

But usually they don’t release updates exactly at midnight Finland time.

I don’t think it’s based on China’s time… but I don’t know which time it is either… :D

No comic for this update just noticed that.

Rank: DaBomb with 360 points
By stopshootinme (@stopshootinme)

I think the comic will come out as the update comes out. If I remember right one update in the past had the comic come out a few hours after the update, not 100% sure thou.

You will likely have to wait at least 12 more hours. I would suspect it will be the 20th in the US.
