'Angry Birds' Soars into New Game

Rovio’s new mobile game will also support its initiatives for “strategic, sustainable” growth.

Rovio has released a new mobile game to further develop the “Angry Birds” franchise, titled “Angry Birds Evolution.”

Created in cooperation with Chimera Entertainment, the new game will feature a host of RPG mechanics as well as console quality graphics, and allows users to collect, train and evolve more than 100 new birds in order to stop Don Bacon, the dastardly pig who plans to turn the idyllic Bird Island into a hotel chain.

The new game is also part of Rovio’s current initiatives for “strategic, sustainable growth,” highlighted in the May issue of License Global.

“We’re thrilled that ‘Angry Birds Evolution’ is out in the wild,” says Miika Tams, product lead, ‘Angry Birds Evolution.’ “It’s been a fun ride bringing a more mature tone and stylized graphics along with all the movie, TV and comic book references together for our more experienced fans. This game shows how well the ‘Angry Birds’ resonates with an older audience, too.”

“Angry Birds Evolution” is now available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play.
