PC Magazine – Attention Angry Birds fans: It’s time to get excited. The birds are getting ready to blast off into outer space.
Game maker Rovio on Friday announced a new spinoff game, called Angry Birds Space, which is slated to drop on March 22.
“Angry Birds Space is a completely new game with innovative new gameplay, but with some of the familiar Angry Birds elements that fans already know and love — plus some surprises!” Rovio said in a statement.
Details of the new game are scant, but Rovio posted online a 20-second teaser video (below) and Web site, which shows a photo of the moon with a slingshot on it, overlooking earth. The one-page teaser Web site reads, “One small fling for a bird, one quantum leap for birdkind.”
Rovio said Angry Birds Space will be its “biggest game launch since the original Angry Birds!” Along with the game itself, Rovio plans to simultaneously release accompanying publishing, animation and retail products, the most comprehensive launch ever for a mobile game, the company said.
Tech website SlashGear noted that March 22 is also the day the Samsung Galaxy S II is rumored to be coming out, so the game may be released for that platform. It is also expected to be released for Android, iOS devices, as well as PC and Mac computers.
This is not the first Angry Birds spinoff game. Rovio also previously released Angry Birds Rio, which has a movie tie-in with “Rio,” a Twentieth Century Fox film, and Angry Birds Seasons, which includes versions for Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and Halloween.
USA Today – Having conquered smartphones and tablets, the hit casual title Angry Birds ventures off to a new frontier: space.
Studio Rovio has announced they will launch the game Angry Birds Space on March 22.
According to a blog post on Rovio’s official website, Angry Birds Space is a “completely new game with innovative new gameplay, but with some of the familiar Angry Birds elements that fans already know and love.”
The post says the game will launch “simultaneously in mobile gaming, animation, retail and publishing,” but it does not provide details on which devices will support it.
Angry Birds Space already has an official website with an image of a slingshot on the Moon overlooking Earth.
With the game moving into space, it begs the question whether gravity will play a role in the physics-based game, which requires players to wipe out a group of enemy pigs by flinging birds with a slingshot.
And the shift in location seems appropriate considering its meteoric rise following launch in 2009 for Apple’s iOS platform. Last November, Rovio revealed the franchise had crossed a half-billion downloads.
