Angry Birds Stella: Rovio releases first teaser image of new game
Five new birds are promised to debut in 'a big new adventure'
Thursday 13 February 2014
Although its Flappy Bird that has been grabbing headlines for the past couple of weeks, the original avian-based smartphone titan is most definitely Angry Birds. Now, developers Rovio has released the first teasers for “a big new adventure”.
The standard line-up of characters in the series haven’t really changed (apart from some new additions and modified birds for the Star Wars tie-in) but this latest teaser is promising five new birds to play with.
The new game will be called Angry Birds Stella and will focus on the eponymous, pink-tinged bird along with her “group of friends” and “some interesting (fr)enemies”.
Rovio are promising the new title will “open a door to a part of the Angry Birds universe you've never seen before” but apart from this vague description there’s really no other details on offer.
Will this be more tower-tumbling fun? An RPG based around a 'leaving the nest' metaphor? Or perhaps a convoluted tribute to Tennessee Williams' classic play A Streetcar Named Desire?
The publisher’s last big release was a free-to-play kart racing game named ‘Angry Birds Go!’ which received mixed reviews from critics and all told, Rovio has created 10 spin off titles from the original smash-hit. How much longer can they continue to re-label the same product? Perhaps 'Stella' will provide new direction.
