Angry Birds Rio isn’t the movie we’d been hearing about – it’s a crossover with a movie, delivering another 45 levels to Angry Birders in two months, says the game’s maker. The pigs don’t figure to appear.
The premise of Rio, as nearly every animated feature’s premise goes these days, is a stranger-in-a-strange-land tale involving a couple of macaws who go to Rio de Janeiro to find a long lost relation, and end up captured by animal smugglers. The rest of the story involves the birds’ escape and their journey of self-discovery.
Angry Birds Rio hooks into that by, as this trailer implies, compelling the birds to free captives from the animal smugglers. No eggs – no pigs. Unless we find out they’re in cahoots with the smugglers later. “Angry Birds Rio will pair the physics-based gameplay of the original game with unique twists based on the highly-anticipated film,” says Rovio. Additional levels will come sometime after Angry Birds Rio’s release.
