Angry Birds fans out there have exciting news today. We already mentioned that the Space version of the projectile game will be released on 22 March 2012. It has been launched for several platforms like Android, iOS, Mac and PC.

Rovio will surely be hoping that the new game is as successful as the previous one. The original version of Angry Birds has crossed 700 million downloads on all platforms. All the app stores have three games in the series that are close to 1 billion downloads.
The highlight is that this is the first time that all are available on day one. It's massive with books, candy, toys and all right from launch day itself. Even the Hollywood movies wont have this.
