Surprise, surprise - Rovio's about to issue the next major content update to Angry Birds Rio early! The Carnival update will be available on the Market shortly (exactly how long, we don't know), and we already have the basic changelog:

  • 15 levels in new world named Carnival Upheaval
  • Blue, the Macaw, can now be used alone.
  • The new hidden fruits are papaya (thanks to everyone who helped us figure this out)

There's several iOS sites that are already reporting on the update, and Rovio stated 2 days ago that Carnival would be coming to Android at the same time as iOS:


We'll keep this post updated as we learn more.

    I saw the update on my iPad yesterday but am still waiting for it on my HTC Android mobile. I guess they are *not* being released at the same time.

    I feel like Rovio is pretty disorganized. They claim that something is coming out, but it's always later than they had said (i.e. Angry Birds Seasons update for Amazon Appstore).

    I stopped playing Angry Birds because the game is already played out. Nothing really changed in game play between updates only graphics and minor additions here and there. Rivio really needs to add something new in order for game to be popular again.

    I just hope that the Carnival Upheaval update is not prematurely released. Beach Volley was just released less than a month ago. Rovio has indeed caught us by surprise with this one.
