Rovio unveils the first trailer for Angry Birds Transformers
Just in time for the start of Comic-Con in San Diego, Rovio has introduced the first trailer for its upcoming mashup Angry Birds Transformers. Even though it doesn’t feature any actual game play, the trailer is pretty awesome. Click here if you can’t see it. The game was originally announced back in June to coincide with the latest Transformers movie, “Transformers: Age of Extinction.” And Forbes was recently able to find out a little more about the actual game itself:
The game focuses on the battle for Piggy Island where Angry Birds Transformers fight for the curiously named Egg Spark. Each of the classic Angry Bird characters will be matched to an equivalent from the Transformers series. This may sound like a bit of a stretch but the designers at Rovio have been hard at work to make sense of this mash-up.As with some of its recent games like Angry Birds Go! and Angry Birds Star Wars II, players will also be able to use the standalone Telpod toys to bring the figures directly into the game. The game should hit the App Store sometime this fall. While some might think the Angry Birds craze is past its prime, combining the birds and bad piggies with Transformers actually sounds pretty fun. I’m looking forward to playing the game when it arrives. Another Rovio title, Angry Birds Stella is slated to arrive in September. As we reported a few weeks ago, that game will focus on the pink bird and her friends.
