Oriental showdown in latest Angry Birds update

Tuesday 02nd, August 2011 / 11:30 Written by

For all you Angry Birds fanatics, Rovio have announced another update for Angry Birds Seasons and this one comes with distinct flavors from the East; dubbed “Moon Festival” (it’s unclear if thats’s the official name), this endorsement may even include some merchandising tie-in’s such as Angry Birds mooncakes (and NO – you don’t get a slingshot to launch them into your pie-hole!)

The new update, currently slated for a September release, is being aimed to coincide with the Chinese mid-Autumn festival which celebrates the largest moon of the year. Traditionally, this event is accompanied by the eating of mooncakes, hence the product tie-in.

There’s not a lot of details on what you’d be getting but keeping with the Oriental theme you can probably expect something along the lines of Summer ‘Pig’nic; and like all the other previous updates – more levels! Joy. However, Chinese players are getting first dibs. The rest of you are in for a longer wait. Time to start brushing up on the physics of slingshots!
