Angry Birds Headed To Space, NASA Willing To Help
Last week Rovio announced Angry Birds Space and it will be ready for hurling March 22nd. Some are crediting inspiration for the game on a tweet from NASA last year.
“We might be able to help you launch birds if you find pigs in space,” NASA wrote Rovio on Twitter in March 2011.
Less than a year later, and with a Space Act Agreement in hand, Rovio and NASA are now counting down to a cross-platform launch that Rovio says will go where no mobile game has gone before.
“We’ll launch simultaneously in mobile gaming, animation, retail and publishing,” Rovio stated. “Not only is this a first for us as an integrated entertainment company, but the first time this has ever been done for a mobile game!”
