Angry Birds Go! Racing Game Launching On November 11th For iOS And Android

Posted by:

Rovio's Angry Birds brand is steadily evolving into a name that's as recognizable as legendary video game franchises such as Mario and Pokemon. In fact, the game is so popular that a soft drink based on the Angry Birds brand happens to be the best selling drink in Finland, allowing it to race ahead of giants like Coke and Pepsi.

Now, the company will be launching a new game called Angry Birds Go!, a 3D kart racing title. Its similar to the popular Mario Kart game with Angry Birds characters added into the mix. Rovio has announced that the game will be launched worldwide for iOS and Android on November 11th. Windows 8 and BB10 users can expect a version as well.

The game promises to be an action packed down hill racer with various tracks, upgradeable karts and several character specific powers. Here's a bonus, like Angry Birds Star Wars 2, this game title will also support Hasbro's Telepods, meaning that you can scan physical toys to bring them on to the virtual race track.

Ever since the success of its original Angry Birds game, Rovio has been leveraging the popularity of its Angry Birds franchise to collaborate with other brands in order to create some exciting games. Angry Birds Rio was based on the 20th Century Fox animated film, Rio. And more recently, the company came out with two games based on a collaboration with Lucas Arts : Angry Birds Star Wars and Angry Birds Star Wars 2.
