Rovio Announces Angry Birds Space

Rovio has just released a silly new teaser trailer for Angry Birds Space. Once again no gameplay is shown, but the video might be good for a laugh. The trailer indicates that Rovio will make an official announcement about this upcoming title on March 8, so stay tuned for more information. The game will be released on March 22, and Kotaku reports that the game will be available for iOS, Android, Mac, and PC.

Angry Birds Space has just been revealed in the most over-the-top, expensive way imaginable– with a zero-gravity demonstration aboard the International Space Station. The video concludes with the first gameplay footage of Angry Birds Space, which appears to play with gravity in all sorts of interesting ways.

Tell us what you think of the new trailer. Does Angry Birds Space look like fun to you? Does Rovio officially have too much money if they’re sending excess Angry Birds merchandise to space? We can’t wait to play this game, even if we’ll have to play it bound to the ground instead of free-floating like astronaut Don.

Rovio Mobile, creators of the world’s most popular iPhone game, Angry Birds, announced a new game on their blog today: Angry Birds Space. According to some reports, NASA is involved with the game as well. There’s a teaser trailer and a website, but neither has any significant details on how the game will look or play.

You can check out the teaser site here, which is barely more than a logo at this point. Engadget also reports that NASA and National Geographic will be involved with the launch of the game, but we’re not sure about how. More details on Rovio’s next game should come out around GDC in early March, and the game will launch for unspecified platforms on March 22.

What would you like to see in the next Angry Birds game? 3D graphics? Augmented reality? Online multiplayer? Or just more of the same fowl-flinging gameplay?
