When Angry Birds forayed into space, we saw some pretty interesting stunts: a takeover of the Seattle Space Needle, a National Geographic book and of course a NASA scientist who explained the physics of these aerodynamic birds (and pigs) in space.
Now, Angry Birds has its sights on Mars. Parent company Rovio has partnered up with NASA (such a good sport) to offer a Curiosity-themed episode within Angry Birds Space. A description of what to expect:
“We’re huge NASA fans, and we were all cheering the Mars Curiosity rover as it touched down,” said Peter Vesterbacka, chief marketing officer of Rovio Entertainment. “So, working together on the Mars update was a perfect fit.”
Minus the animation, the footage from the teaser video is actual NASA footage of the red planet. The update for both iOS and Android devices is available now.
