Rovio is moving mobile games to a new era; an era where players will not just play a game with their smartphone, but one where they will make use of telepods to import characters into the game.
Telepods, as you know are action figures that let you introduce new characters into the game simply by holding the toy over the phone’s camera. Telepods were big in Angry Birds Star Wars II and Angry Birds Go! and will also be available in the upcoming Angry Birds Stella.
In keeping with that trend, the Finnish developers have announced their newest Angry Birds game called Angry Birds Transformers. The developers are working with Hasbro to create a new toy line and a set of licensed consumer products featuring the game characters Autobirds and Deceptihogs.
Rovio has not announced a release date yet for Angry Birds Transformers, but the telepods are definitely arriving later this year. Keep watching this space for more news and updates on the game as it happens.
