The Angry Birds Space website and video teasers doesn’t offer a lot of information yet, other than the release date and the Neil Armstrong-inspired slogan, “One small fling for a bird, one quantum leap for birdkind.”
Angry Birds is launching into outer space with the latest version of Rovio Mobile’s popular strategy puzzle game.”Angry Birds Space” will blast off on March 22 with NASA along for the ride. The space agency seems to have even inspired the game, appropriately enough through a tweet.
“We might be able to help you launch birds if you find pigs in space,” NASA wrote Rovio on Twitter in March 2011.
“Sounds good!” the Finnish game developer said in reply. “It might happen in the not too distant future…”
Less than a year later and with a Space Act Agreement in hand, Rovio and NASA are now counting down to a cross platform launch that Rovio says will go where no mobile game has gone before.
Rovio said it would release more details about Angry Birds Space in early March but shared with Yahoo! Games that the game would introduce some new types of birds while bringing back some from the earlier games now enhanced with “super powers.”
“You’ll be lobbing birds on entirely new planets,” Yahoo! Games Ben Silverman wrote, adding that players will have to contend with zero gravity and new gameplay elements such as slow-motion puzzles and “lightspeed” destruction.
