Rovio, creators of the popular Angry Birds franchise, appear to be getting closer to a spin-off that will let users play on the side of the Bad Piggies. Accounts have been created on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for the Bad Piggies. On Facebook, they list their mission as “Stealing eggs!!” Could that be a hint as to what the game play may be like?
Angry Birds is now a household name. Even Rovio (the company responsible for the ultra-successful bird-flinging app) is a logo as familiar as EA’s. But today we’ll have to add another bit of vocabulary to our lexicon. Prepare yourselves: Bad Piggies has arrived.
We’ve known about Bad Piggies for a while, but only a lucky few have actually played the game.
Rovio is adding to their Angry Birds franchise with the new spin off called Bad Piggies that will give fans of the series a chance to live life through the eyes of the pigs we are so often trying to hit. We knew the game was coming out on September 27th, but we didn’t know what the game would be about.
Rovio and Lucasfilm have just confirmed that it will indeed launch a sequel to the much-beloved Angry Birds Star Wars game on September 19 across the globe. This confirms our earlier report from last week.
They’ve been hinting at it for more than a year now. Rovio has long said that the Angry Birds universe isn’t limited to the vantage point of the birds. The pigs, in fact, have a long backstory.
And this is the month where they’ll finally be able to tell it with ‘Bad Piggies’ upcoming release on Sept. 27.
There can never be enough of the Angry Birds franchise. Never. And that is why Rovio has tweeted the teaser image above. In the tweet, Rovio says “Big adventure with new birds coming soon! #NewAngryBirds.” This would be Rovio’s latest entrant since Angry Birds Go launched in December.
The most recent Angry Birds update brings a connection to their recent spinoff, Bad Piggies. What better way to promote the new game than by incorporating it into the game that started it all. This update gives you 15 pig themed levels and 15 Surf ‘n Turf levels. There are also some new power-ups such as Super Seeds, the Almighty Sling King and Birdquake.
Finnish casual game maker Rovio is back at it with a new title in its Angry Birds series, this one a branded partnership like the Star Wars version released previously. The new game pairs Blockbuster Transformers with the squabbling birds and pigs, in an upcoming game teased by the company with a new landing page and press release today.
