Bad Piggies trailer shows the pigs are hams; Rovio's new game set to debut on September 27th
the slingshot has been retired from this game which will launch on September 27th in the App Store and Google Play Store and will eventually be offered in the Windows Phone Marketplace. Rovio has said that its goals go beyond developing hit games and wants to be the next Disney. Thanks to the popularity of the Angry Birds series, Rovio has been able to license the characters for everything from candy to comforters to lunch boxes. It is a strategy that sets Rovio apart from other successful app creators like Zynga. Of course, Zynga's successful games aren't filled with characters that translate well as a stuffed pillow.
Last year, Angry Birds generated more than $100 million in revenue for its developer. While that might be hard to top in 2012, a full-length feature film is due out which should attract both the kids and those grown-ups who have been playing the games on their handsets. And who knows? Perhaps next year at this time we will be talking about the "Bad Piggies" Broadway show.
Unfortunately, Yahoo! Games has the exclusive on the trailer (we told you Rovio's corporate idol is Disney!) so to view it, click on this link.
