Angry Birds Seasons will introduce a new character -- a pink bird that blows dangerous bubbles at evil green pigs.

Known simply but appropriately as Pink Bird, the latest angry bird seems cuter than her existing teammates, batting blue eyes and sporting long lashes. But as displayed in the video below, she seems quite deserving of the term "angry" as she blows her deadly bubbles at her piggy opponents.

Gamer maker Rovio has been promoting Pink Bird as the latest icon on its Angry Birds Seasons Twitter feed. But so far the company's been mum as to when she'll debut or what surprises she may offer.

CNET contacted Rovio for comment and will update the story if we get more information.

Rovio last updated Angry Birds Seasons in late June with a minor bug fix. The company recently unveiled Amazing Alex , a new addition to its lineup. But it continues to rely on Angry Birds as its bread and butter, with new games, updates, TV shows, merchandise, and other items to cash in on the franchise.
