Whether you’re a mobile gamer, have visited a department store or toy store in the last year or have even watched some TV, you’re bound to know what Angry Birds is – even if you haven’t actually played the game. Basically, for quite a while now, Angry Birds is everywhere you look, from plush toys and television debut’s, to mobile gaming and clothing for all ages. The Angry Birds craze has somewhat died down over the past few months, namely in part to the big new releases of 2014, although the game is still holding a steady place on the charts. What makes this game great is that not only is it addictive and heaps of fun to play, but it also makes its developers quite a hefty sum of cash.
You’d think that all this fame and glory would be enough, wouldn’t you? Well, you’d be wrong.
The latest news to hit the mobile gaming scene is that Rovio is planning to release an Angry Birds RPG (Role Playing Game) to iOS and Android devices later in the year. This RPG will also incorporate crafting systems, enabling users to uniquely personalise their individual characters in the game. While this is great news for players, it’s also great news for Rovio, as the crafting system encourages players to make in-app purchases to increase the strength of weaponry and armour, helping to support their already successful monetisation plan throughout their various apps.
As mentioned previously, the app so cleverly entitled “Angry Birds Epic” will be launched into the Apple and GooglePlay Stores later this year. Gamers in Australia and Canada, however, will be able to test out the full force of the angry birds in battle, with the game being released throughout these regions in the coming weeks.
