Any Angry Birds fan worth his salt is laser-focused on the upcoming release of Angry Birds Space later this week, but work on that new title hasn’t stopped Rovio from continuing to support previous installations. Today the company announced updates for both the original Angry Birds, as well as last year’s Angry Birds Rio, bringing some new levels to both of the the apps.
Angry Birds gets itself a pack of 15 new beach-themed levels. Granted, we just hit the official start of spring, but in the Northeastern US at least, it sure has been feeling a lot like summer lately. If it’s still a bit chilly where you call home, maybe these levels will at least have you thinking sunny, warm thoughts until the weather comes around.
Angry Birds Rio doesn’t get a full new episode with today’s update, but instead gains a dozen new bonus levels. This should prove a fun new challenge for experienced players, as you’ll have to demonstrate some serious Angry Birds mastery to retrieve all the fruit you’ll need to unlock these levels, let alone conquer them. Rovio also points out that this is far from the end of the road for Rio updates, and it will have more for us in the future.
So far, we’ve seen the new Angry Birds and Angry Birds Rio pop-up in Apple’s App Store, but it doesn’t look like the updates have made it to Google Play just yet.
