Rovio has previously teased Angry Birds Go! and today we get our first look at the kart racer that will feel familar to anyone who's ever played a little Mario Kart in their time. Available on all four major mobile platforms at the same time, Angry Birds Go! will launch on December 11 for free.
Angry Birds Star Wars II might be just around the corner, but the original has just received a great update with 30 new levels to tackle. What do we get? Ewoks! The new levels are set on the Forest Moon of Endor where you shall attempt to destroy the bunker and disable the Death Star's shields in the big final battle.
Sadly, the question "what is Angry Birds Go?" hasn't been answered yet, but Rovio has at least spoken briefly on the project. What we're not looking at is another, traditional, Angry Birds game, though. Having played around with endless runners, and what looks to be the Red Bull Soap Box race, they've apparently settled on something that "felt right."
Rovio has released another teaser for their forthcoming sequel, Angry Birds Star Wars II, and the star is none other than the Emperor himself. Ian McDiarmid who played the iconic villain in the Star Wars movie gave his vocals to the Green Pig equivalent, urging you to "join the pork side."
Rovio has launched their game synch service, Rovio Accounts, and you can now keep your progress between iPhone and iPad, iOS and Android on both the original Angry Birds game, and Croods. From the [Rovio blog[(http://www.rovio.com/en/news/blog/344/rovio-account-now-available-worldwide-on-android-and-ios/):
The latest in the Angry Birds series has become official, with Angry Birds Star Wars II catapulting our way on September 19. As expected from the earlier promo shot, the new game covers the prequel trilogy, and this time around is bringing Skylanders-esque figurines from Hasbro into play.
Angry Birds isn't going away any time soon, and Rovio is today teasing a big announcement for Monday July 15. There's not much to go on, but from this promo image alone it's clearly related to Star Wars, and more specifically the Star Wars prequels. There was only a short passage on the Rovio blog accompanying it that doesn't really give much away:
This weeks App Store free app of the week is Rovio's Angry Birds Space for both iPhone and iPad. If for whatever reason you haven't tried this particular version of the smash hit bird flinging adventure, both regular and HD versions are now free for the week.
