According to Rovio, the new title will take fans “to parts of the Angry Birds world we’ve never seen before.” Rovio also says the title will be “all about inspiration, empowerment and other real issues, without forgetting entertainment and quirky fun.” Rovio says this new story will exist in both the physical and digital world, with physical items like “toys, books and other retail products” part of the mix. » Read the rest
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. While the teaser doesn’t show much, we can assume that new birds will be utilized as none of the shadowed birds look familiar. For now, there is no further information available.

If you were worried that the NSA was spying on you while playing Angry Birds, fear not. Rovio has issued a press release to clear the air. Right out of the gate, Rovio makes it clear that they do “not share data, collaborate or collude with any government spy agencies such as NSA or GCHQ anywhere in the world.” This comes after news broke earlier that the NSA may actually be doing so. Rovio says that third party advertising networks seem to be the culprit of the rumors and the company does not allow any third party network to use or trade any user data.

Angry Birds fans have a new game to play. Actually, those of you that aren’t so much into Angry Birds might get into this one as well. Angry Birds Go is all about downhill racing on Piggy Island so it’s sure to be a blast. You can race as either birds or piggies in this first ever 3D Angry Birds world. You will start out as soapbox car, but you will be able to upgrade along the way, hopefully achieving supercar status. Of course that just might cost you though. This is the first free-to-play game from Rovio, so make sure to keep your wallet close by.

Everyone’s favorite furious flying fowls have gotten yet another update by Rovia in Angry Birds Friends. Fast on the heels of an update to Bad Piggies, Rovio is pushing the Halloween theme out just in time for the holidays. In their latest, you’ll now find plenty of zombie pigs, skeletons and other spooky game play.
In addition, the game comes in time for a new Halloween tournament breaking ground which the company is starting tomorrow, Oct 23rd. Aside from the normal game play, the update has more Halloween, in app purchases for new sling shots for added power and a few other scary surprises for you as well. As mentioned above, the tournament begins tomorrow and here are some of the details involved:
Angry Birds Star Wars 2 is coming out soon, and Rovio is getting us excited by showing off the characters. Rovio has released a few teaser videos to show us four of the characters that will be in the game once its released on September 19. There are a total of 30 characters that are going to be in the game, and in addition, Star Wars 2 will be the first game of the franchise to allow users to play on the “Pork side.”
The game will be available in a free, ad supported version and a $0.99, ad-free version. You can check out the four videos after the break.
Rovio has finally debuted their game data-syncing solution on Android, called Rovio Accounts. The premise is simple; you create a Rovio account, and it backs up and restores your data across devices for some Rovio games. Unfortunately, there are some limitations in place. Rovio Accounts, as of right now, only supports syncing two games, including The Croods and the original Angry Birds game. Rovio’s other 7 mobile games don’t qualify yet. Hopefully we’ll see them in the future, but as of right now, you’re going to be limited just a bit.
Still, it’s a step in the right direction for cross-platform cloud syncing, which seems to be much more popular now than it used to be.
Well would you look at that? Rovio went ahead and started teasing all of you Angry Birds stans out there with a clear, yet simple image of an Angry Bird in Star Wars gear. So if we deduce correctly– then Rovio clearly has an Angry Birds Star Wars follow-up in the making. Unfortunately, there’s no additional detail about what to expect from this new game, except that it will have a July 15th unveil date (peep the #July15 hashtag)— meaning we’re just days away from seeing this new game. Hopefully you folks can try to contain your excitement in the meantime.

Rovio Stars, a new third-party shop under the wings of Rovio, announced yesterday that they would be releasing their first game, Tiny Thief, on July 11th. Following up on that announcement, a teaser video was released today that gives us a look at some of the gameplay we can expect. The game’s developer, 5Ants, has brought a Rovio look and feel to the title, though it does not appear to involve any flicking or flinging of objects on screen. Instead, users will have to use their brains to solve puzzles and find hidden objects as they work their way through thirty different stages. Hit the break to view the video. » Read the rest
