Transformers Joining Star Wars as Next Angry Birds Expansion

Rovio and Hasbro are bringing Autobirds and Deceptihogs to the next Angry Birds game.

Rovio Entertainment has announced the next entry in its wildly successful puzzle game, Angry Birds. And this time it's all about the Autobirds against the Deceptihogs.

Rovio is teaming up with Hasbro to create Angry Birds: Transformers, which will mark the biggest partnership for the developer since it made Angry Birds: Star Wars.

Not much is known about Angry Birds: Transformers, but likely it will launch around the same time as Transformers 4 this summer. Rovio and Hasbro will also release a line of Autobird and Deceptihog toys along with the game. These toys will be Hasbro's "Telepods" which allow the figure to be transported directly into the game.

On the website, Rovio says that it is "coming soon to app stores," indicating that the game will be released on mobile platforms. The developer has also said that it will likely come to platforms beyond mobile.

I loved TF as a kid and up through the first Beast Wars series, but now hate it as it's unrecognizable.

I'm re-watching Beast War on Netflix as we speak. Love that series back in the late 90's.
