Angry Birds Rio: For 20th Century Fox, A Bird in the Hand is Worth Two in the Bush

January 31, 2011 - Written By Cameron Summerson
It was only a matter of time before the phenomenal success of Angry Birds was taken to a new level. That’s exactly what happened this week when Rovio announced their collaboration with 20th Century Fox for a version of Angry Birds, based on the upcoming family film, Rio.

If you’re not familiar with Rio, it’s a story about a domestic bird that never learned to fly, who will inevitably go on a life-changing journey with friends, encountering the ups and downs along the way; so a Rio themed version of Angry Birds only makes sense.

The preview trailer for Angry Birds Rio is more of a teaser, with no actual gameplay exposed, but I’m sure that we can expect the same bird-flinging fun that we’ve all came to love since Angry Birds was released.

The game will feature 45 new levels and is set for release in March of 2011, shortly before the April 15th date set for the film.
