After much speculation on whether Angry Birds Go would be an endless runner or kart racer, Rovio, via Redbull, has revealed the answer. The video above doesn’t show any in-game footage, but it does confirm what we’ve long thought: Angry Birds Go will be kart racer. Rovio’s tweet below spilled the beans.
We joined forces with @RedBull to let you all know that #AngryBirdsGo will be a kart racer!
To those of us who have followed Rovio for a long time this isn’t a huge surprise. In early interviews, Peter Vesterbacka — Rovio’s Mighty Eagle — was asked many times where Rovio would go next with Angry Birds. Most of the time his answer cited the evolution of Mario to Mario Kart.
Now, with that said, this does not in any way lessen our excitement for the game. I’m quite confident that Angry Birds Go will be a unique adaptation and carefully follow the story line that has been built through Angry Birds, Bad Piggies, and all of Rovio’s amazing animations.
Now we just need to see some gameplay… Stay tuned!
