‘Angry Birds Transformers’ Gets Basically the Best Trailer Ever, Launching October 15th

The mighty Angry Birds Empire announced their latest collaboration back in June, a mashup game with the Transformers brand of transforming alien robot vehicles. Not surprisingly, the game is called Angry Birds Transformers, but that initial announcement didn’t provide any further details. Then during Comic-Con in July, Rovio released a visually stunning CGI trailer for Angry Birds Transformers that–while still not revealing any gameplay–was incredibly cool to watch. This week, Rovio has released another new teaser trailer, this time going in an entirely opposite direction of that CGI trailer. This one is lo-fi and an homage to the classic ’80s Transformers cartoons. I love it.

Unfortunately, Rovio again fails to show off any gameplay for the Angry Birds Transformers game, but man did I enjoy that trailer anyway. Besides, I think we all know what the game is going to be like, right? It’ll be an Angry Birds game with Transformers characters, not totally unlike the Angry Birds Star Wars crossover games that have been a major hit. At the very least, Rovio did offer up a new bit of information with this latest trailer, and that’s that Angry Birds Transformers is set to launch on October 15th. If any more details arrive before then, we’ll be sure to let you know.
