Rovio Entertainment has released the first trailer for The Croods. Rovio is known for creating the very popular Angry Birds and Bad Piggies franchise that has also spawned a blockbuster crossover with the Star Wars universe.
The Croods is a FarmVille building / management type game featuring a family of cavemen. Users must help the Croods survive the Stone Age by hunting, gathering and fending off "never-seen-before creatures".
Move over Furby! Rovio Entertainment is preparing to announce what will surely be one of the hottest selling holiday toys this year. Rovio and Lucasfilm will unveil an Angry Birds / Star Wars toy line at 10:00AM ET in Times Square, New York City. An image of a Star Wars themed Angry Birds Jenga Death Star was leaked this weekend. Various sources have also reported that a Star Wars themed Angry Birds game for iOS and Android devices is in development.
Little is known about the game, but we do know the red bird will be Luke Skywalker. I assume the Angry Birds will be battling pigs dressed as Stormtroopers on planets like Tatooine and Hoth. Rovio will also be making the big announcement at the Toys R Us Times Square location, making me wonder if the toy lineup will be a Jeffrey the Giraffe exclusive?
The Angry Birds franchise is going to a galaxy far, far away. Rovio Entertainment hinted about the next Angry Birds tie-in on their official Tumblr page on Friday.
Welcome to the Angry Birds Tumblr page. Over the next few weeks we’ll have behind-the-scenes content, animations, comics, and much, much more. But what will this all be about exactly?! Here’s a clue…
Rovio will unveil the upcoming Star Wars crossover on October 8 at the Toys R Us Times Square location in New York City. It's unclear if Rovio is releasing an entire new Star Wars themed game or something else altogether.
Rovio Entertainment is attempting to freshen up their popular Angry Birds franchise by releasing Bad Piggies on September 27. The new game for iOS, Android and Mac devices tells the other side of the Angry Birds' story by allowing fans to play as the pigs.
"There's a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we've been constantly asked: what about the pigs' side of the story?" said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. "Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes."
