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.”

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