As you can guess, this time around you won’t be playing as the birds but you’ll finally get to see how the other half lives by playing as the pigs. In an announcement earlier this morning Rovio said that this game will “turn the franchise on its head with all-new never before seen gameplay.”
Aside from that statement, Rovio is being rather vague about the actual mechanics of the game so we’ll have to wait to see how that pans out.
They also announced that it’s slated to be released by the end of the month on September 27th for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, your Android Device and Mac. Soon after the launch you’ll also be able to pig it up on the Windows Phone and PC.
Be on the lookout for a new onslaught of merchandise like plushies, t-shirts, shower curtains, and dog toys as well.
