Rovio is going to be launching a new game called Angry Birds Stella. This game will revolve around the pink character known as Stella. Stella appeared for the first time in Angry Birds Seasons. Stella and her friends will be featured in the game in the form of games, books, and toys.
Rovio has denied that they are giving the National Security Agency (NSA) any data despite a leaked document from Edward Snowden alleging that they are helping the U.S. government spy on users. The data may include the age and location of the users, but may contain additional demographics. Rovio’s “Angry Birds” App was named as one of the “leaky” apps that can be used for a source of information by the NSA.
Rovio has released Angry Birds Go on iOS, Android, Windows 8 devices, and BlackBerry 10. Angry Birds Go is the company’s first free-to-play game in the Angry Birds franchise and is their first go-cart racing game. Characters in the game include Red, Chuck, Stella, and King Pig. There are 50 different soapbox karts available for use in the game too. Angry Birds Go will support Rovio Telepods toys, which lets players “teleport” their Angry Birds physical toys into the game. A line of karts, tracks, and other toys will be released through Rovio’s partnership with Hasbro.
Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) has sold over 1 million Telepods. Telepods are action figures that tie into the Angry Birds Star Wars II video game. Telepods let players import their favorite Angry Birds Star Wars characters into the game using the phone or tablet’s camera to scan a QR code.
Rovio has announced a new game called “Angry Birds Go.” The game is similar to Super Mario Kart. Angry Birds Go is a 3D racing game that has upgradeable vehicles and characters with super powers. This game will support Hasbro Telepods just like Angry Birds Star Wars II. This way you can scan physical toys to bring them on the virtual race track. Angry Birds Go is arriving on December 11th on Android, iOS, Windows Phone 8, and BlackBerry 10.
When Rovio releases the “Angry Birds Star Wars II” game, players will be able to unlock characters by playing with toys. Hasbro’s Telepod toys will work with Rovio’s Angry Birds Star Wars II game. Each of the playsets will have action figures that work independently or can be scanned into the game. Each Telepod figure is about an inch high and depict Angry Birds versions of Star Wars characters.
