What Is Angry Birds Go? An Upcoming Kart Racer From Rovio And Red Bull, Of Course [Video]

Oh, hey, look, it’s another game from Rovio, the 800-pound gorilla avian in the gaming world, with more money and sales than pretty much everyone else, based on one intellectual property.

When Rovio mentions a new game, especially one based on Angry Birds, we listen.

As you can see from the above video, Rovio is talking about what looks to be a karting game, like Mario Kart. The Finnish gaming company is getting some help from Red Bull, which has already put out a few karting games on its own.

Now, Rovio may not have a great track record when it comes to games that aren’t the tried and true Angry Birds-style gaming mechanic (the brilliant but under-performing Max Adventure, for example), but the company did ok with Bad Piggies.

As Jared (as quoted by Eli, but that’s another story) over at TouchArcade says, “If you build your own kart à la Bad Piggies that could be hella tight.”

Angry Birds Go may be coming soon, so, as Kalle Kaivola from Rovio says in the video, “look out for some big news. Soon.” You know we’ll be keeping an eye on this one, as well.
