It looks like Rovio is getting on the ball with delivering Angry Birds updates as the original version for Windows Phone 8 got bumped to version 3.2 today and this isn’t just bug fixes, folks, it’s new stuff.
The fresh update adds the Red’s Mighty Feathers episode, which ought to bring 15 new levels to Windows Phone 8 (assuming it’s getting feature parity with other platforms).
So what is Red’s Mighty Feathers episode? Glad you asked.
From the updated game description:
“The #1 app of all time gets a fun new update! You may be an expert pig popper, but how will you cope with a moving target? One bird stands between the egg and the advancing pig army in the all-new Red’s Mighty Feathers episode. The fearless Red Bird faces wave after wave of Bad Piggies in their crazy contraptions. But wait! He now has some magic feathers from the Mighty Eagle himself – giving Red incredible new powers as he darts toward those pesky pigs at incredible speed!”
What makes this interesting is that this new episode by Rovio was only rolled out at the beginning of July for iOS and Android. While we still had to wait an extra 48 days, that’s still a fairly decent turnaround for Windows Phone and at least closes the gap, if only slightly.
You can watch a trailer of the Red’s episode above to see it in action. If you have a Windows Phone 8 device, you can grab the update in the Store right now.
