‘Angry Birds’ Gets Its Version of ‘Mario Kart’ with ‘Angry Birds Go’

Game will be the first time the "Angry Birds" franchise veers away from slingshotting birds at buildings

Watch out Nintendo, “Mario Kart” may have a fierce new rival with “Angry Birds Go!”

Rovio, the maker of the wildly popular “Angry Birds” franchise, announced Wednesday that it will launch the game Dec. 11 as a free download for mobile devices. As is the case with most mobile games, additional levels and upgrades will be available for a fee.

The game is the latest spin-off for the “Angry Birds” franchise, after its “Star Wars” editions, “Bad Piggies” and one themed around Fox’s toon “Rio.”

But “Angry Birds Go” will be the first time the game veers away from slingshotting birds at buildings. This game’s birds and evil pigs will now kart around a track. See trailer below.
