A new instalment in the Angry Birds franchise has been named.
Although Rovio hasn't said anything concrete about Angry Birds Stella, which is due out this autumn, it certainly sounds like a radical departure from the titles of old.
Here's the description in full:
Get ready to meet Stella and her friends! Stella may be pink, but she's definitely one of the Angry Birds, a fierce and a feisty character with a great group of friends. Of course no story is complete without some interesting (fr)enemies!
Angry Birds Stella will open a door to a part of the Angry Birds universe you've never seen before! There will be plenty of fun and adventure, but the bunch of passionate pals will also have to deal with some serious issues in order to protect their friendship and the environment they live in. Luckily, Stella and her friends are good at finding creative solutions!
The adventures of Stella and her friends will debut in the fall of this year.”
As is inevitably the way with all modern Rovio releases, the dev then goes on to detail the numerous licenced spin-offs that will accompany the release including animations, books and toys.
