Following on from the successful Angry Birds: Star Wars mash up, the next franchise to get feathered are those every popular robots in disguise, the Transformers.
The mobile game leaked out three months ago and now Rovio have officially confirmed the title. Although no details of the title have been given it appears the game will be based on Angry Birds Go!, the kart racing title, rather than original foul flinging escapades.
“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 both those who grew up with the brand in the 80’s, as well as fans of the brand today. People are going to love it!”
As well as the game there will be Telepod toys from Hasbro which feature the transforming birds plus a QR code that can be scanned into the game. Characters rumoured for the game include Soundwave as the Chef Pig, Bumblebee as the Yellow Bird, Optimus Prime as the red bird and the Moustached pig as Unicron.
