Rovio has announced that a new version of Angry Birds, inspired by Rio (an upcoming animated feature film), will hit the App Store this coming March.
The news appeared on Rovio’s blog, yesterday.
In Angry Birds Rio, the original Angry Birds are kidnapped and taken to the magical city of Rio, where they eventually escape their captors and set out to to save their friends, Blu and Jewel – two rare macaws and the stars of the upcoming Fox motion picture, Rio. Angry Birds Rio will pair the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the highly-anticipated film.
Angry Birds Rio will feature “45 dedicated levels,” and new levels will reportedly be added “via app updates.” Rovio adds: “the game will be available for download on smart phones and tablets worldwide,” hinting at a native iPad version of the game.
