Happy Birdday! Angry Birds turns two on Sunday, December 11, and we have some great surprises in store for our fans! 

Fans everywhere can enjoy a new “Happy Birdday” update for Angry Birds, which features 15 delectable new birthday cake levels, spiffy new menus and graphics, and special birthday achievements. As a birthday gift to our fans, all episodes are now unlocked! Also make sure to check out our new Rovio channel, which gives you instant access to your favorite Angry Birds content. You are just one tap away from news, games, videos, Facebook, Angry Birds shop, and much more! The update will be available for iOS on Sunday, with other platforms coming soon.

Fans in the US can celebrate by heading over to their local Barnes & Noble, which will have special events and giveaways from 11 AM to 3 PM. Angry Birds aficionados can join a scavenger hunt to find the Mighty Eagle or enter a raffle to win special Angry Birds prizes. Along with the Birds & Noble Scavenger Hunt, select stores may offer additional activities such as coloring or high score contests, design your own Angry Birds character, Angry Birds Parades and guessing games. Don’t forget to check out the Angry Birds cookie and wide assortment of Angry Birds toys and products

Toys ‘R’ Us is also getting into the “birdday” spirit. Fans can get 25% off Angry Birds plush toys plus a code that unlocks an Angry Birds Google Chrome bonus level.

For Angry Birds fans in Japan, Rovio CMO and Mighty Eagle Peter Vesterbacka will be giving a special presentation at the Apple store in Ginza. Vesterbacka will share stories about how Rovio took Angry Birds from just another mobile game to a worldwide entertainment success story and how the App Store was involved. In Harajuku, Tokyo, an Angry Birds event will give fans a chance to play games and win prizes.


The Forbidden Planet stores in the UK will also be celebrating Angry Birds’ second birthday. When they open on Sunday morning, all nine Forbidden Planet stores will have an Angry Birds dedicated space, featuring lines of stock that have never been previously available in the UK.

Although Angry Birds is only two years young, it has already been downloaded 500 million times, making it the most popular app ever as well as one of the fastest growing international brands. THANK YOU to all our fans, and we hope you have a happy birdday!
