Rovio is once again celebrating the Chinese New Year with a variety of new additions to several of their game titles. Just in China, Angry Birds has seen close to a half billion downloads, so it should be no surprise that Rovio wants to join in celebrating the Year of the Goat. According to Rovio’s SVP and COO of Games, David Byrne,
“Rovio has been a great fan of Chinese New Year since 2012 when we developed a Year of the Dragon update for Angry Birds Seasons. We enjoy seeing fans around the world partake of a unique celebration that has its origins in China.”
The Angry Birds franchise will never fade away. Why? Because just when there seem to be no ideas left, Rovio shows that there is more. The latest game is done with the Transformers franchise. Angry Birds Transformers unleashes Autobirds onto your device to protect Piggy Island from the EggBots. Fortunately, the Deceptihogs join forces with players to fight the EggBots. The game is full of animated chaos. And for the first time ever, the arms and legs are featured because it is necessary when transforming.
So Angry Birds meets Transformers. Are you excited? It is certainly an entertaining combination.

Today, the Angry Birds franchise takes a step into a new direction. In the Play Store and Amazon Appstore, Rovio’s new Angry Birds Stella is ready to be downloaded. Stella and her friends Dahlia, Poppy, Willow and Luca all set out to protect Golden Island as Bad Princess Gale and her pigs attempt to take control. Each of these characters have their own unique abilities to take advantage of across more than 120 levels.
Later this year, a plethora of Angry Birds Stella content will arrive. ToonsTV will carry a television series with thirteen episodes. This series will directly relate to this game. Books and other products from Hasbro will take things even further to merge digital and physical experiences.
Angry Birds Stella is completely free to play and enjoy, but there are in-app purchases to enhance the experience.

The first teaser for the upcoming Angry Birds game was released by Rovio a few days ago with a heavy emphasis on the word “epic”. Well new details about the game show that it will actually be called “Angry Birds Epic”, and that it will actually be a turn-based RPG style game.
Not only will the new game be RPG style, but it will also feature a rather extensive crafting system. Unfortunately, that’s really all the details we know about it. Angry Birds Epic is still mostly under wraps, but it will be released by Rovio on iOS in Canada, Australia and New Zealand later this week.
The game company behind the Angry Birds franchise, Rovio, has posted a teaser video for the upcoming game in the series. While it doesn’t say too much about the game, it does confirm that those birds are definitely still angry.
The teaser also features a few shots of medieval suits of armor, after which one angry bird is launched through the helmet. One thing the video does confirm is that the game will launch in Australia and Canada, and then go on to the rest of the world. Hit the break to see the video for yourself!
