If achievement data is an actual lens into intent, it appears as if Angry Birds Seasons [$.99 / HD / Free] is set to be the second full Angry Birds [$.99 / HD / Free / HD Free] game to be graced by the Mighty Eagle. The dudes over at fan site Angry Birds Nest have spotted several listings for Mighty Eagle in Angry Birds Seasons’ Game Center data, indicating that Rovio Mobile is about to drop the level-shattering and Angry Birds' completely optional IAP bird into the mix.

Seasons, of course, is the holiday-themed Angry Birds joint that Rovio updates whenever an extraordinarily pleasant day in certain joyous months need to be celebrated. Often, players are restricted from playing too much Seasons at once, as it unlocks levels per day. This hits me as something that might put a damper on the Mighty Eagle as a value proposition, but we’ll have to see how Rovio handles and rolls in the update. Who knows? Maybe it’ll be free.

I guess this shouldn’t come as a surprise. Rovio likes money. Also, it has said in the past that the Mighty Eagle will be coming to different platforms, iterations, and versions of the uber-popular franchise. Seasons seems like a natural progression. Also, if you haven't yet, you should debate giving the Mighty Eagle a try in Angry Birds. It's not just a cheat mechanic, it's actually a whole new game mode for each level.

UPDATE: While this story sat in queue waiting for to be published the update was released this morning. Go grab the Mighty Eagle if you're looking for something new to do in Angry Birds Seasons!

    You can drop the ?.  The seasons update with the Mighty Eagle was available this morning.

    While it is true that the Mighty Eagle has less value in Seasons for level skipping, having the Might Eagle in Seasons will allow players to try to get Total Destruction on all levels.

    How boring is this? Same game, same features, repeated ad infinitum...

      It's really fun actually, the Mighty Eagle adds a lot to the game... Unless of course you just want to hate Angry Birds because it's cool to hate things that are popular online, in which case, rock on.

        I hate on angry birds... But only because of the fail physics (and being wiped 3 updates in a row didn't help lol). I just wish that they would get over the angry birds thing and make another game. It is getting old now.
