Just when you though that your life was over because Flappy Bird was taken out of the app store, Roxio steps in to save your day. Roxio has plans for a new game the company says is going to change up the Angry Birds franchise.
The New Poster
Angry Birds: Stella is going to feature a brand new character, a female bird by the name of Stella. And in a notable move by Roxio, Stella is said to be all about empowerment and inspiration and is supposedly set to tackle some real issues. Information is scant right now regarding the game, with Roxio releasing only two images as a teaser.
This is a bold move by Roxio–until now, their casual game series has mostly been silly, humorous, and very light. According to Angry Birds CEO Mikael Hed,
“Angry Birds Stella is breaking the mold by introducing strong, passionate characters who really stand for something, while adding plenty of action and reality into the mix.”
It is interesting to note that the company chooses a female character for this introduction, rather than a male character.
The header image shown above show a number of birds, with a very queen-like bird watching over the smaller avians. Is it possible that “Stella” will be an evil bird turned against the crew of feathered friends? Or is she the loving caretaker, simply watching out for them?
Very little other information has been provided about the release at this time.
