Rovio has just announced the official launch date for Angry Birds Go!, the company’s new 3D racing game. We’ll leave all of the Mario Kart comments to you.
“Feel the rush as you fling those freewheeling birds and piggies down the track at breakneck speed, with plenty of twists and turns in a thrilling race to the finish line!” says Rovio. “But look out for hazardous roads, mischievous opponents riding your tail, and special powers to put the race leader behind the pack. And go from soapbox car to supercar by upgrading your ride!”
“Plus, the Angry Birds world comes alive in rich, colorful 3D for the first time ever! So you can see the birds and pigs from every angle and experience Piggy Island in an amazing new way!”
The game with launch on iOS and Android on December 11th.
Rovio also announced a handful of new partnerships with companies like Hasbro, Tigerprint, Fashion UK, and Leomil for a wide variety of Angry Birds-themed merchandise. Angry Birds has grown into such a global name that it’s not just about the games anymore – the real revenue obviously comes from these merch deals.
“We are thrilled to see so much creativity around our Angry Birds property and can’t wait to welcome these companies onboard as we continue to delight our fans with innovative product lines,” said Naz Cuevas, SVP Global Consumer Products Licensing.
