Thumb 2 AngryBirdsGO  1

Rovio has announced its racing game Angry Birds Go! (which looks to be inspired by Nintendo’s classic Super Mario Kart) will launch on December 11.

The game will be built from the ground up as a free-to-play title, with a whole host of modes and features included from the get-go. In Angry Birds Go! you can feel the rush as you fling down the track and go head-to-head in a fast and furious race to the finish line! Look out for treacherous roads, mischievous opponents and unique special powers to put the race leader behind the pack. Plus you can go from homemade soapbox car to a super-fly car by upgrading your ride. It’s all there, along with crazy stunt and air tracks, and many fun and surprising game modes. The game will be out on iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10.

Below is the official trailer:

The free game will also feature Hasbro’s TELEPODS, so existing users will be able to teleport their favourite karts into the game. Anyone looking forward to this? It could just be another smash hit from Rovio.

    Looks good from the video. We’ll have to wait and see how much it actually costs to “fully” enjoy the game.

  • Yeah it does look like it could be a lot of fun. Most likely those who want to buy power ups etc will do so, while ‘free’ players get slaughtered.

    This looks great! I love kart racers, and since I haven’t owned a Nintendo system since the NES, I’ve been missing out on some of the best! I have two wishes for this game though: 1- don’t make it suck for adult gamers who don’t want to buy silly physical add-ons. And 2- I’m hoping it will be made compatible to control with coming iOS controllers (hell I’m wishing for that to be true for most iOS games, but for a kart racer, even more so!)
