Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise continues to expand. We’ve already seen the company launch themed games such as Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Space and Angry Birds Rio.
Rovio, in partnership with Hasbro, is a new title coming soon that will potentially appeal to the millions of Transformers fans is “Angry Birds Transformers.” The two companies will come together and release “a mobile game, consumer licensed goods and a product line from Hasbro.” The game will be available on all major mobile platforms sometime ‘later this year,’ but little is known about the actual gameplay. Taking a look at the teaser poster on its site, Angry Birds Transformers will see various bird-related characters such as Optimus Prime, Megatron and Bumblebee.
“We’re really excited to combine the iconic Transformers universe with the quirky world of Angry Birds” said Blanca Juti, Chief Marketing Officer of Rovio. “This mash-up is going to appeal to those who grew up with the brand in the 80s, as well as fans of the brand today. People are going to love it!”
