Apple this week released a new Twitter account dedicated to App Store games. The @AppStoreGames account has already hosted an "AppStoreChat" with The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and has promised to tweet exclusive looks at the "hottest" games every Monday. Apple's old @AppStore account will now only cover apps released to the App Store.

As you probably already know, Angry Birds 2 landed on the Apple App Store this week. The game has already manged to nab 5 million downloads, according to Rovio Entertainment.
