character-optimusprimeWe got some news straight out of the "Sure, why not" department of the TouchArcade command center this morning on Rovio's latest co-branding initiative. Following closely in the footsteps of both Angry Birds Star Wars [Free] and Angry Birds Star Wars II [Free] is Angry Birds Transformers.

Revealed through a vague teaser site, not a whole lot of details are available yet other than the game is "coming soon." Knowing what we know about Angry Birds games though, I'm guessing it'll be available on every platform imaginable.

Additionally, Angry Birds Star Wars launched at 99¢, so it's entirely possible that the Transformers-themed game sees a similar initial price point- like most Angry Birds games. It'll be interesting to see what kind of Transformers flavor Rovio manages to injects in to the Angry Birds formula, but, like all Angry Birds games, I'm sure it'll be fun.

    Sure, why not? eh. But why? Why are they ruining pure and innocent classics of our youth one by one, regressing each of them to total jokes? I mean what in hell the connection between transforming robots from another planet and round puffy birds? Both can fly?

    But I guess it can't be as bad as those things they dare to call "live action movies" with a brutal evil killing machine Optimus and wee humans who can save the day when huge robots with massive guns and immense technology cannot.

    They keep their mind at "Bay".

    • Eli Hodapp

      ...And here I am just looking forward to playing a fun video game. I had no idea Rovio was going to go back in time and alter the 1980's Transformers series your nostalgia was based on. 🙁

      • James

        If people didn't have opinions like his comment sections wouldn't even exist.
        Plenty people have stuff to say about where Transformers has gone.
        Not that I disagree with you in the slightest but,
        What's the point of making equally if not more snarky comments about your users opinions? What site does that?

      • Eli Hodapp

        It's a valid question though, isn't it? If you've got beloved memories of Transformers stuff as a kid, how does this change any of that? People on the internet just seem to really enjoy being upset about things that are new or different. Things evolve and change over time. The 80's Transformers cartoon will always exist exactly as it always had.

      • James

        I get what your saying. But you know what I'm saying.
        Honestly Bay probably has a lot to do with why TF are relevant today.
        My point wasn't about the content.

        Nice steal Uncle Riley!

      • Stormourner

        the spammers thinks they could fool us easily

      • jaggi

        Don't forget that "the people of the internet" is your audience / client base.

      • jaggi

        *on the internet 🙂

      • ElisBiggestFan

        Everything Eli says is correct. His opinion is all that matters and those who disagree are fools! Eli is life.

      • Alexythimia23

        What planet are you morons from? Eli never attacked any of you with snarky comments as yours are all worse, at least his are said with wit and humour. I mean come on that first post about how it ruined transformers, lmao get a life, the problem is YOU, why cant you face that things change and people do spinoffs, im all for opinions but as soon as someone makes a dickhead comment and gets the appropriate response from the moderator, you get all the other sheep jumping on the "eli is an egomaniac" wagon, its so easy for you emotional drama queens to blow things out of proportion, just get a life or go away as your right you wont be missed, touch arcade is getting bigger and bigger and im sure they can do without any of the incendiary sensitive tunnel vision morons like yourselves. Put yourself in their shoes and imagine the amount of jackasses they have to put up with maybe then you will think before you write stupid comments that deserve a brazen response. P.s only aimed at the minority on here fortunatley lmao

      • Eli Hodapp

        A few commenters have a serious chip on their shoulder around here towards anyone who writes for TouchArcade. It's weird. Legit everyone anything says is parsed as some kind of verbal assault. For an opinion-driven site, people sure don't like our opinions. Again, really weird.

      • Chungston

        But Eli, they have ruined our childhood by releasing this game we don't even have to buy. Oh the tragedy.

      • Cookies

        It's attitudes like this that put chips on shoulders Eli. Occasionally your responses are clearly well thought out and make perfect sense, but so often it's just a crap defense or silly excuse for having an opinion (which you really don't have to make). If you're going to run 'an opinion-driven site,' you kind of have to get used to people disagreeing with you and not take it as some kind of assault any time someone says something. Replying with snark and irony just makes things worse.

      • Eli Hodapp

        I'm not, it's just amusing to me.

      • NinjaKitteh

        You run the site, perhaps growing up might be a better course of action as opposed to sinking to other people's levels that you claim to have an issue with. You know, it's called being an adult.

      • MrSpud

        This site does that apparently, the comment section is becoming heavily moderated and pretty much anyone who doesn't agree with the writers and have something negative to say will have their comments deleted, it didn't use to be that way.

        I don't get the snarky 'put you back in your place' comments either, very arrogant if you ask me. Plus it's easy to have the last word when you can edit the comments to your liking. I give up really, it's just not like it used to be, this site is big now and so are the egos. I just come here for the games... peace.

      • Goggles789

        Word up. Lots of "put you back in your place" style comments going around from the mods. Leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I keep coming back for reviews and game news, but I just keep getting put off by the overall ego boost of this site. There isn't anything really exciting coming out, anyway. I won't be missed as a visitor, here. 🙂

      • MonkeyChunks

        Nothing wrong with criticizing something that people may think has become stale and repetitive. That is also something that creates innovation. People post comments, they want to see who agrees and what others are saying. This gives people a picture of opinion about certain products, services, etc.
        Why would you be unhappy about that?

    • Onikage725

      You mad, bro?

    • RoboWarrior

      Considering how fun Angry Birds Star Wars is, I not too worried that this game would be bad at all except after Epic not too sure.

    • Illuminerdy

      Pure, innocent classics of our youth? A show made to sell a toy? You don't read much, huh?

  • Stormourner

    autobirds!! transform and rollout!!!

    • Cookies

      If this is not the eventual tag line of the game, Rovio clearly don't pay enough attention to comments on reviewing sites, because it totally should be.

  • Arch Deluxe

    I started playing Angry Birds Epic and I'm enjoying it. But it's a simple rpg and not one of their typical catapult games that have become tiresome.

  • Mirkwood

    Sure, why not.

    There's no point in questioning Rovio anymore

  • ODMay

    My guess: the birds gonna be transformers and once we slingshot them through the air, we have to tap them to make them transform to use their special powers.

  • cody53982

    This game would be good with the rpg element

  • Ya Boy TwoKay‼️

    I enjoyed the Star Wars angry birds but I don't like the real star wars…but on the other hand, I love transformers so I'm getting this ASAP!

    • ElisBiggestFan

      You sound like a blast...

    Daily "did you know this about Eli Hodapp":

    Did you know Eli likes to use his balsam BEFORE shampoo?

  • B30

    They could team up with Disney, again (Marvel, Mickey Mouse, Pirates of the Carribean – the list goes on and on and on ...).

    • Stormourner

      they could make angry wonderland XD

  • speedyph
  • yearoftherat

    First Angry Birds, then Angry Birds Rio, Angry Birds Seasons, Angry Birds Space, Star Wars..blah, blah blah. Rovio is running out of ideas. They need to find some new developers that will bring some fresh new innovative games to the table.

    • nini

      I wouldn't say they're running out of ideas, new ideas involving a new franchise they're plum out of sure but then you don't kill the goose that's laying golden eggs because you're bored with the eggs it makes.

    • Arcite

      If people are still buying it, why not?

  • Jake7905

    As long as Michael Bay isn't involved with this game, I'm OK with it.

    • Stormourner

      I hope mr. bay is involved with the game ;P

  • Press2Play

    Next how to train your angry birds.

  • thiagovscoelho

    There's something very weird about that title, and it bugs me heavily.

  • defunct32

    Lol, since you guys want innovation, it'll be the other way around; Transformer transforming into Angry Birds and it plays just like any other Angry Birds with lots of IAPs and more.

  • rewind

    I guarantee you it'll be free. The last two Angry Birds titles (although they aren't the normal bird-launching games) have been free.

  • hellscaretaker

    Nothing like milking the cash cow is there????

    • Stormourner


  • spokentruths772

    Instead of ANOTHER angry birds game why not make a tiny thief sequel that game is alot of fun way better than these freaking overrated birds smh rovio

  • Goose

    Right in the childhood.

  • Goggles789

    Tried Angry Birds Epic and it was just nauseatingly obnoxious. Can probably expect the same from this. Angry Birds has gone downhill.

  • DuckyShot out?

  • Blodia

    Coming soon: Angry Birds Brokeback Mountain.

  • wazza99999

    Aren't Rovio in danger of going the same way as Travellers Tales with the Lego games? The same game in a different guise and now beginning to show a complete lack of imagination. The 1st couple of Lego games were ok but quickly became tiresome for me and the same is happening with Angry Birds in my opinion. Just saying.

  • kenazdeonlanggam

    Convince Roviomobile and hasbro to make angry birds transformers a free app

    The same price as and angry birds go!

  • Kane

    RovioBots vs. Deceptipigs, sure why not?

  • bored2death

    Whaaat!?! whaaat is this??? Can they make an angry spider birds one? Or how about xbirds pigs of future past? Or GTANGRYBIRDS!Bird age inquisition? Bird effect 3? Birds creed? Watch birds. Teenage mutant ninja birds. Or how about an mmo? GUILD-BIRDS 2 or world of bird craft ? The possibilities are ever so endless...

    • Chungston

      I like your spirit. You are right. Exciting times for us video gamers!!

  • bestkevin

    Angry birds Star Wars and now Transformers. What next?? Lord of the Rings??

    • Kane

      My monies on - Harry Potter

  • Devok

    Why transformers, not Harry potter, lord of the rings, the hobbit, or the muppets, many mangy movies to choose from, even high school musical.

  • iPhallex

    I can't wait for Angry Birds Retirement.

  • oooooomonkey

    Ermahgerd I will buy this as it's been absolutely ages since I played an angry birds game and I love transformers 😀

  • MonkeyChunks

    I don't know why, but Angry Birds trying to extend its life with partnerships with franchises, and corresponding in-game gimmicks is starting to become annoying. Star Wars, Rio 1, Rio 2, and now Transformers most likely because of the upcoming movie.
    If people like these pop culture themes that's ok I guess. It's just difficult to imagine how many repetitive levels some people are willing to play.
    Maybe there way more transformers fans than I'd like to think.
