Yesterday the ‘Nest was abuzz with speculation about what Rovio’s #newangrybirds teasers on Twitter were all about. Today, we have confirmation that the Pink Bird, aka Stella, is getting her own — likely female-focused — franchise.
“Best Friends Forever …. Most of the Time”
That’s the tagline for Angry Birds Stella that is displayed on the new stella.angrybirds.com landing page. Per the press release, “Angry Birds Stella is all about inspiration, empowerment and other real issues, without forgetting entertainment and quirky fun.”
This is more than just a game or update, it’s a whole new franchise. “Angry Birds Stella will bring fans a wide range of entertainment across multiple media, such as games, animation, toys, books and other retail products for many years to come.”
So what does this mean for us super flingers? Well, the press release does mention ‘games’, but it’s hard to say for sure what type of games they are referring to. I would definitely be surprised if this spinoff didn’t include a new mobile game however. But as we all know, not all mobile games are created equal, so let’s hope it’s something we can all enjoy as a community!
I for one am excited to see what’s to come. How about you? Let us know below.
