More good news for Angry Birds fans! Rovio has unveiled a trailer about the upcoming season of Angry Birds: Summer Pignic game. The pigs are coming back, and are preparing a summer “pignic” but the brave Angry Birds won’t let them mess with their eggs.
In this trailer you can notice that you’ll only have one bird and one mission on each level to kill all of the pigs, which is definitely a tough twist on the standard fowl lineup. So, it’s actually the basic premise for the entire game series, but with the extra “one bird” part. Until now, as you know the title was focused on levels with associations to specific holidays, but now, looks like it will be the first update to actually identify itself with an entire season not only a holiday. It’s not like Rovio had much to choose from, with summer months dominated by national holidays rather than the internationally-celebrated fare that would be easily recognized by its disparate user base.
The update will be available for Android, webOS, iOS, and Symbian devices, and we expect that Rovio will release this new Summer Pignic season in early-mid July, in order to get everything ready.

Rovio developers announced a new character: the Mighty Eagle, which is going to join the Angry Birds family but only for those of you with Nokia phones.

It will swoop in, blitz those pesky pigs and save the day, but with a price. If you want the Mighty Eagle you will have to buy it as an add-on from the Ovi Store available as an in-game purchase.
