Angry Birds Rio: movie tie-in game gets March release date
First iPhone game/movie crossover inbound, but has Rovio sold out?
Rovio has signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to produce a version of Angry Birds to tie in with the upcoming film Rio, a 3D animation about a parrot named Blu. The game will play similarly to the Angry Birds we know and love, but with a few characters and twists from the film thrown in.
The Rio edition will be available to download from March across various platforms, with Peter Vesterbacka of Rovio claiming that the deal will bring “massive global visibility,” adding that it will be “as if we had made our own movie.”
