Rovio Entertainment is rolling out Angry Birds Friends , a new version of the blockbuster physics game franchise integrated with Facebook to support new social interactions.
Rovio Entertainment reported full-year 2012 revenues of $195 million, up from $97 million the previous year, fueled by continuing demand for its Angry Birds games as well as branded merchandise.
Comcast said it launched Angry Birds Toons, an on-demand channel that features short animated video clips based on the game produced by Rovio Entertainment. The 3-minute clips, which debuted on Sunday, are available on its video-on-demand platform, its Xfinity.com/tv online video portal and its Xfinity TV Player App for mobile devices, Comcast said.
Rovio Entertainment's long-awaited Angry Birds Toons is finally coming to a television near you--maybe. The 52-episode animated series, which fleshes out the saga of the blockbuster mobile game's title characters and the Bad Piggies who stole their eggs, will premiere March 16 on selected television networks overseas and expand a day later to some video-on-demand platforms, including Comcast's Xfinity on Demand in the U.S. More importantly, it will screen across every title in the Angry Birds franchise.
Rovio Entertainment is launching a video distribution channel spanning across all of its Angry Birds titles, enabling fans to view the company's new Angry Birds Toons animated series via smartphones and tablets.
Rovio Entertainment is making the original version of its blockbuster mobile game Angry Birds available as a free download from Apple's App Store.
A report based on mobile data traffic from carrier networks around the world shows that, for once, Angry Birds is not necessarily the most popular app on any given day.
Angry Birds maker Rovio Entertainment formed a new advertising division within the company, dubbed the Brand Advertising Partnership Team, that consists of high-level executives from Apple, MTV and Millennial Media.
Rovio's Angry Birds are everywhere, in almost every form factor you could imagine, and there is no doubt in my mind that somewhere along the line someone is buying a piece of Angry Birds merchandise without having a clue that it has anything to do with a mobile app. That's when you know you've got a brand with legs.
Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm Ltd.'s new Angry Birds Star Wars reached the top of Apple's App Store download chart within 2.5 hours of its Thursday launch, obliterating previous Rovio records.
