Rovio to Release 'Angry Birds Go' Kart Racing Game




Rovio is planning to debut a new game in its Angry Birds series, entitled Angry Birds Go. Created in partnership with RedBull, the game was first teased in mid-June with a website that featured a bird dashing down a pathway.

Angry Birds Go is unlike Rovio's standard Angry Birds games, which focus on physics-based puzzles solved by flinging birds at various structures. Instead, the game appears to be a kart racing game. As noted by our sister site TouchArcade, Redbull has a multitude of racing games in the App Store already.

The specific game mechanics are unclear, but it does appear that players will race karts against each other. While the video teaser does not mention a specific release date, it does say "All will be revealed soon!"

Rovio is going to milk every last cent they can out of that franchise.

I do think it will be shown, be iOS 7 only (doesn't Game Center have a new multiplayer mode coming? Can't remember) and be an iOS 7 "launch" title.

So now we've got Angry Birds Go, Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Space, Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Star Wars 2, Angry Birds Friends, and the spinoff Bad Piggies. I think it's time for a break.

As does every successful franchise, not really a Rovio phenomenon.

As an Angry Birds fan (perhaps not devotee) and someone who generally likes karting games, I'm quite happy for them to milk every last cent from the franchise they can.

Personally, I think better that than yet another sequel to some stupid FPS mindless violent crap blood sport game featuring overly steroid enhanced men running around in combat gear armed to the hilt with weapons shooting everything in sight, but I digress.

I'm probably as bored with the Angry Birds franchise as everyone else but at least put yourself in their shoes...wouldn't you milk it for everything it's worth?

I know I would

Mario > Mario Kart

Donkey Kong > Diddy Kong Racing
Crash Bandicoot > Crash Team Racing
Rayman > Rayman M
etc.

... and now Angry Birds > Angry Birds racing ... a logic move ... sounds like a boring concept. But who knows it could turn out to be a great kart racer.

I was just making an observation. It will be funny in ten or so years when Angry Birds becomes a relic of our times laughed at by our children

You must have a cloned ripoff. The original isn't bloody at all.

I'm holding out for Angry Birds NFL Blitz:

Cardinals, Eagles, Falcons, Ravens, and Seahawks vs. the 80's era Redskins, AKA "The Hogs".

In the old days every smart marketer knew that diluting a great brand with too many product lines or variations was bad for business and it often signaled the death or end of the brand.

Today, most every business has forgotten that, except, more than others, Apple.

They only make racing games because it appeals to everybody, especially when they have characters they all know and love. It could be terrible, but little kids will still ask for it, and parents will buy it for them.

And when you're in a group, it's the easiest party game because you can do 4+ players.

I despise Angry Birds, the worst game in history in my book. For some reason I can't stand it, I've tried multiple times, no kidding.

But because this is a Go' Kart game I might actually enjoy it.. We'll see..

I know. I'm so angry

On a serious note, really, how much more milk does this cow have ?
