Long lost fans of Mario Kart, a potential new addiction has arrived on Android in the form of Angry Birds GO! Oh, and that exclamation isn’t because I’m overly excited, that’s simply how Rovio is spelling the game’s name. But yes, the kart-style racer from Rovio is here and available for free. (more…)
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. (more…)

Rovio is going to keep on milking this Star Wars cash cow, so we are about to go through another wave of intense teaser trailers and hyping for the upcoming release of Angry Birds Star Wars II. In the latest round of videos, Rovio invites us to “join the pork side,” with a special voice appearance from the one and only Ian McDiarmid.

This morning, Rovio announced the availability of their new cloud-based save system, Rovio Account, for Android and iOS.
