    The next Angry Birds game isn't based on a holiday. It's not a true sequel, either. Instead, it's a licensed game based on 20th Century Fox's upcoming animated film, Rio. This bizarre partnership makes some sense once you find out what the movie is actually about: A group of kidnapped birds join together in an attempt to escape and stop their captors once and for all. But we wonder -- will Angry Birds Rio feature pigs? And will the birds be just as suicidal as before?

    Rio hits theaters on April 15, but the licensed game will be available on "app stores worldwide" (presumably on both Android and iOS) in March.[/p]

    Wait, is this a new Angry Birds game? It's kinda hard to tell.


    Fuck, I can't believe it.

    Wow, this is the most ingenious gimmick I have ever witness, a game that doesn't represent the movie itself yet its advertise for that film (Rio).

    Basically, there will be a movie called Rio, so there will be the game version, Angry Birds Rio for the App store. It's like when they release a Harry Potter movie, they always have a game based on it released.

    Ohhhh so that's what that movie was about.

    I've seen adverts for it but I couldn't for the life of me figure out what the storyline of that 'Rio' movie was supposed to be. :/

    Except instead of making an angry birds clone theyre just having Rovio make an angry birds game for it! I like the idea actually.
