Hear ye! Hear ye! A new Angry Birds approaches. Details basically couldn't be more vague at this point, as all we really know is this will be a totally new Angry Birds game, and it'll be landing on March 22nd along with an absolutely massive marketing blitz which will span a complete cross-platform launch, potentially an accompanying animated short, even more Angry Birds swag, and who knows what else.

For more information, keep an eye on the Angry Birds Space web site. Hopefully at some point in the next month it'll change to something other than an image of the moon.

    If there's some actual new type of gameplay involved, I'll be interested.
    If it's just yet another (fourth) skin to the same old game, then not so much.

      Don't get your hopes up.  Rovio seems pretty content to milk the AB craze for all it's worth.  I played AB for about an hour last year and got bored.

    I posted about this earlier in the week. It involves new power-ups, similar to the ones seen in the new Facebook version; laser guiding and freezing rock. Set on the alien world, you obviously also have to battle against new gravity.

    Ugh. I really enjoy Angry Birds but I really dislike having tons of app icons for essentially the same game. I wish they could have made one Angry Birds app and then used IAP for all these different games which are essentially level packs.

      Unfortunately IAP doesn't hog up yet another spot on the iTunes top 10 like this will.

      a) Folders
      b) You're seriously downloading TONS of different iterations of the exact same game, (that's about 2 years old). 

      WOW.

    I’ll guess that it has the same shooting mechanic, but different gravity: pigs on and around round planets that have their own trajectory-distorting gravity, rather than gravity that aims downward.

    We’ve seen other artillery-style games that work that way; maybe this is Angry Birds’ turn?
