With the recent surprise update of the Classic Angry Birds game with 15 new Flock Favorites levels, Rovio has begun the next evolution of the franchise, according to an announcement on Rovio.com. They teased that Flock Favorites is one of three updates, with a power meter stating “The Revolution has started!”
While it would seem like a safe bet to assume that Angry Birds Stella and Angry Birds Transformers will likely be the next two “big things” mentioned, Rovio are masters at the surprise curveball, so it could also imply two new updates to the Classic Angry Birds game. Time will tell. You can read their release here.
Speaking of Angry Birds Stella and Angry Birds Transformers, several new pieces of information have been released, just one week prior to the San Diego Comic Con 2014 reveal of the trailers for both games.
Angry Birds Stella
The Angry Birds Rio 2 update, Timber Tumble, included a link to the updated Stella page on angrybirds.com. The page now lets you explore all the line’s characters, personalities and special moves. Don’t forget to explore the Stella Pinterest page, showcasing some amazing Stella artwork by Rovio.
Toys R Us has also listed three Stella Telepods toys on their site with a September 1, 2014 release date. It is likely that this will be the date of the game’s release as well. Check them out here:
- Angry Birds Stella Telepods Piggy Palace Playset Game – $19.99
- Angry Birds Stella Telepods Tree House Playset Game – $29.99
- Angry Birds Stella Telepods Birds Rock Together Collection – $19.99
Angry Birds Transformers
Another, in a long line of leaks regarding the line, Seibertron.com reports that Toys R Us also posted some Angry Birds Transformers Telepod toys, but promptly pulled the listings. They mirrored the toy images in their report here.
Additionally, Forbes.com, GameInformer.com and FamilyGamer TV bring new images of the same products and more, including prices, a video showcasing each toy, and new Rovio artwork for the line. From their reports — and in the video above — we learn that the Telepods DO transform, it appears that most will be available as Toys R Us exclusives, and the toy release date is October 1, 2014, again, the likely release date of the game.
As usual, we’ll bring you more updates as they become available.
