Rovio is planning to release the much anticipated Bad Piggies game for Android and iOS on September 27. Windows Phone and Windows 8 platforms will get the Angry Birds spin-off shortly after, according to the official presser. The new game will be a departure from the previous titles in the Angry Birds series, as players will finally be able to play as the pigs – “with all new, never-before-seen gameplay – and not a slingshot in sight!”
“There’s a lot of empathy towards the lovable enemies from the Angry Birds games, and we’ve been constantly asked: what about the pigs’ side of the story?” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “Bad Piggies gives you the chance to play as the second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe, and explore this rich world through their green eyes.”
“We’ve had a lot of fun creating a totally new and unique gameplay experience,” said Petri Järvilehto, EVP Games at Rovio. “There’s so much more to these pigs than what is seen in the Angry Birds games, and Bad Piggies is the first glimpse into what’s going on in the imaginative and ingenious minds of the pigs.”
