New Angry Birds game confirmed
Latest title is a tie-in with Formula One driver Heikki Kovalainen
Rovio, the maker of the green-pig-bashing series that recently passed its billionth download, has just confirmed a release date for its latest Angry Birds title - a tie-in with Finnish F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen.
A teaser page for Angry Birds Heikki - which is expected to be web-based rather than a smartphone app - shows that it will be released on Monday 18 June.
Kovalainen - a self-confessed Angry Birds fan - has spent the current Formula One season zipping round race tracks while wearing an Angry Birds helmet, after his "merchandising and webgame partership" with Rovio was announced back in March.
However, click to share the news on Facebook and your post is auto-populated with the text "Where's Heikki's F1 racing helmet gone?! The Angry Birds have a hunch!" We're guessing that means a themed Angry Birds game - such as Angry Birds Rio - with the helmet taking the place of the Angry Birds' eggs.
Then again - a Mario-Kart-style racer populated by the characters from the Angry Birds universe - now that would be worth playing.
Thousands of people queued outside the store and took part in a 10-second countdown before the doors opened and cheering fans were escorted in by staff.
