Angry Birds Space Coming To A Smartphone Near You
Game studio Rovio announced on Friday that they would be unleashing the newest edition to the popular Angry Birds franchise.
The new game, Angry Birds Space, will be launched on March 22, and will be available across multiple platforms.
"Not only is this a first for us as an integrated entertainment company, but the first time this has ever been done for a mobile game," the company said in a blog post.
A report by SlashGear notes that the March 22 date also coincides with the launch of Samsung's Galaxy S III.
Samsung has been partnering with Rovio through its television line by integrating some Angry Bird games, as well as its cartoon show, in the company's SmartTV market place.
Rovio said that the new game will be the biggest game launch since the original Angry Birds launched.
