Angry Birds coming to Facebook

7 Mar 2011

Popular video game Angry Birds is migrating to Facebook in April, Mikael Hed, CEO of the game’s developer, Rovio, has announced.

The game that consists of players hurtling angry birds at thieving green pigs is coming to the social networking site with “completely new aspects to it that just haven’t been experienced in any other platform,” Hed said.

Aspects of the game are expected to be more collaborative, and even “the pigs will have a more prominent role.”

Rovio has vowed to keep fans of the game up to date on all the latest Angry Birds news, including its coming to Facebook, if fans “like” the game’s Facebook page.

Angry Birds has flown its original coop since its inception as an iPhone game: It’s been ported to Android, Palm and Nokia; been spun in multiple versions; and become available on PCs, PSP/PS3 and Windows 7 Phone, and even inspired a movie and animated series. A 3D version is also in the works.
