Rovio has reported on their Facebook page that Angry Birds RIO is getting an update this week. The update, whatever comes after “Jungle Escape,” will unlock some sweet new features including “marmoset mauling action” and it’ll have many “juicy secrets” to discover. The update is being released a little later than expected, much to the chagrin of gamers who have been chomping at the bit and complaining about it’s slipped release date. But they can rejoice that it will be followed by three more chapters of the Angry Birds Rio game to be released on or about July, October, and November of 2011.

Squawk! Hold on to your hats, people: the first update for Angry Birds Rio lands next week!,” said it’s Facebook Page. “Get ready for more marmoset-mauling action and more juicy secrets to discover. Did you already find all the Golden Pineapples and Bananas?

The first chapter, released back in March, was called Smuggler’s Den and introduced gamers to the bird characters Blu and Jewel from the 20th Century Fox film RIO. Blu is a rare Macaw who lives in a bookstore in Minnesota. When scientists learn there’s another Macaw spotted in South America that’s female, Blu gets sent down south to meet her and let nature take it’s course. But both are kidnapped by poachers seeking to make a fortune on the rare birds.

The game is a natural spin off of Angry Birds, as our poultry are kidnapped along with Blu and Jewel and not only escape, but they will seek vengeance in classic Angry Birds fashion on poachers who have captured their rare brethren! Chapter Two, Jungle Escape will take the next step as gamers will get exposed to new environments and set pieces from the film, and there may also be a dreaded Black Bird, ready to wreck any smuggler’s day. And as with Chapter one, Gamers can also collect golden fruit, area trophies, and three star bonuses hidden like juicy little Easter eggs all over the game.

Angry Birds RIO Beach Volley will be available at the Amazon App Store for Android starting next week – with your everyday average Android Marketplace release surely soon to follow.

UPDATE: Check out our full spoiler of [Angry Birds RIO Beach Volley] now!


  1. Umm, just for correction – the new update isn’t Jungle Escape. As you can see in your own screenshot, that is already available once you beat smuggler’s den. The new update will fill the “May 2011” spot.

  2. After the release of the movie, more people will surely love this game. Who could resist Angry Birds Rio! If this app is good enough to help a movie become the highest grossing movie of the year then this is really something worth trying and if 10 million downloads in 10 days of this app is not enough reason then I don’t know what will convince you.

  3. My husband has the Rio update this morning on his I phone,  I have a HTC (recently purchased) and I don’t seem to have this May update?  Any idea why?


    •  i have the samsung epic and i don’t have the update either. i went to amazon apps and there was an update for rio but i didn’t get the may release…


  5.  Please don’t tell me that we have to pay for the update, I’ve been hearing that we do… Sounds pretty lame that Rovio are a bunch of sellouts to a bunch of pricks like Amazon..

    • Ross, you have to beat the Jungle Escape levels first I believe, if you’ve already beaten it Idk what to tell ya. 😛
