Back in June the developers behind Angry Birds, Rovio, teased a brand new game like nothing they’ve released before called Angry Birds GO! This wasn’t your typical game flinging birds at bricks or in space, instead it hinted at some sort of racing or endless runner title. Well, today they’re back with a neat little teaser, but we don’t have a release date yet.
Rovio jumpstarted the mobile gaming world more than almost any game to date. Getting millions and millions of people playing Angry Birds. Even my grandma enjoys it from time to time. While I’ve personally grown tired of the bird-flinging fun, I’d love to see what else they can come up with, and that is Angry Birds GO.
From the sound (and looks) of things this brand new mobile game will be all about racing. At first many thought it could be an endless runner, and Rovio teases about that in the video released this afternoon. However, they don’t want to follow in Temple Run footsteps, they want to burn rubber down their own road. So here it is, the new teaser trailer.
It doesn’t appear to offer too many details, or a look at any game footage, unless we saw a race track at the beginning. Instead it appears we might be using birds to assemble our own Go Kart (I’m thinking Little Rascals) and those familiar Angry Birds (and their goofy noises) will be in the driver seat banking around corners, collecting power-up for upgrades, and tapping that boost button for blazing fast speeds.
I don’t know about you guys but if Rovio can make something as classic, original, and fun as the original Mario Kart, I’m all for it. As long as I can shoot birds down the track and take out enemies I’ll be happy. Stay tuned as they claim we’ll be learning more shortly.
