Rovio has started teasing a new Angry Birds game, tweeting the above image out from its official Twitter account yesterday. Along with the photo, the game-maker says that a “big adventure with new birds” is coming soon and added the hashtag #NewAngryBirds.
The consensus here is that Rovio is finally going to introduce new characters to its franchise, after using the same birds and pigs in many of its popular Angry Birds titles. The ‘big adventure’ comment also suggests that this isn’t going to be its typical bird-slinger…
Here’s the tweet (via MacRumors):

Rovio released a handful of new Angry Birds game last year, including the kart-racer Angry Birds Go! and Angry Birds Star Wars II. It also enhanced its franchise by introducing interactive TELEPODS! action figures and its very own Accounts cloud-syncing service.
There’s no word yet on when this new Birds title will be available, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we have more info. I know a lot of people are probably rolling their eyes at yet another Angry Birds game, but I’m interested to see if Rovio can strike gold again.
After teasing its brand new Angry Birds “adventure” game on Twitter, Finnish games maker Rovio today formally announced that a new game named Angry Birds Stella is arriving this Fall. The game has been named after its protagonist, the pink, female Stella thing described as a “fierce and a feisty character with a great group of friends”.
Angry Birds Stella will open a door to a part of the Angry Birds universe “you’ve never seen before,” the blurb promises. If a media release is an indication, Angry Birds Stella will indeed combine the familiar bird-slinging action with some new adventure elements. I’ve included some additional information below the fold…
Angry Birds Stella will open a door to a part of the Angry Birds universe you’ve never seen before!
There will be plenty of fun and adventure, but the bunch of passionate pals will also have to deal with some serious issues in order to protect their friendship and the environment they live in.
Luckily, Stella and her friends are good at finding creative solutions!
The release, a full-on assault across various platforms, will span all Rovio’s offerings, so expect a ton of merchandize as Rovio’s properties include not only games, but animations, books, toys and more.
