Angry Birds GO! Arrives December 10, Actually Looks Kind of Awesome

angry birds go

Angry Birds GO!, the Mario Kart-esque title from Rovio, will officially arrive December 11. The game will be free, as are most Angry Birds titles, and features “high-octane downhill racing, upgradable karts, tons of characters with unique special powers and a fully rendered 3D world.”

The gameplay trailer below really does remind us of Mario Kart in a way, but also upgraded thanks to better graphics and the ability to upgrade karts or pick-up super powers. There are also at least 12 different characters to choose from, though I couldn’t tell you off hand who I would go for, but still know to this day that Yoshi was my boy on Mario Kart.

Mark your calendars, Angry Birds may be back in your life at least for a minute or two.

    i wonder if “down hill racing” means you won’t have to worry about gas/brake…? that could be a good control scheme for mobile.

  • Mark Mann

  • Karan Das

    Can’t wait to play this on a Motomaker Verizon Moto X…… Hopefully I won’t have to wait more than a month….

    Yoshi for sure, in Mario Kart and Mario Golf. He’s always the most balanced player.

  • Dan Lopez

    Looks great but will my VZW Nexus handle it? That is the question. Clinging on to my unlimited.

  • Shane Redman

    What do you do when you hit a wall on how to innovate your character brand??? Make a Go-Kart game (ie Mario, Sonic)

    And sonic racing always confused me….he’s friggin Sonic the Hedgehog, can’t he just get out and run?!

      Same with Mario and Sonic at the Olympics.

    Awesome! Angry Birds Go does look pretty fun! Another game I’m looking forward to now.

    And not sure what Mario Kart character I always went with, but something tells me it was the classic Mario. Honestly haven’t played a Mario Kart game in years. Think the last one was on my DS. It’s definitely been awhile.

    umm when is the real Mario Kart going to come out for Wii U??
    nevermind – spring 2014??? w.t.f.

    I feel like the Wii U is fastly becoming this console generation’s dreamcast.

    looks great

  • Joshua Bailey

    Looks cool. On another note…who else is pretty disappointed about the lack of news on 4.4 and N5/N10 today. My bank account has been waiting here patiently for both devices.

      i’m with you, it’s kind of sad that I actually check on news about hourly for any updates. Just needs to be announced/available already.

      On topic this game actually looks fun to me as well.

      Also Bowser was my mario kart character of choice… slow acceleration but once you got good and got him going he was a speed demon

        Every site and their mothers kept saying Oct 15th Google Event and Announcements. Now I know what a BB fan feels like waiting for BBM

  • William Ku

    this makes me interested in angry birds again.

  • SA_NYC

    So…tired…of…Angry…Birds…

    • Peer Linder

      but this looks like kind of fun :-)

      • WestFiasco

        It really does, i expect it to last longer on my device than the others

    • Josh Flowers

      …and…zombies

      • SA_NYC

        Agreed. I consider both sharks jumped.

      • EvanTheGamer

        Zombies will NEVER get old.

        Also, I bet you’d be the first one to get eaten alive for your disrespect.

  • palomosan

    Looks good, specially if you’re able to use the powers of each bird during the race.
