Just when you thought as an Angry Birds fan, you couldn’t get any more excited with the latest Angry Birds Star Wars II game set to come out in September, it seems that wasn’t enough for the makers, Rovio.
Rovio is seemingly attempting to keep the Angry Birds series going for longer than most had expected. Now, taking a turn for better or worse, the hit series has decided to go Go Karting, and if I was to take a guess, it might just pay off nicely.
Why do I have so much faith in it? Rovio has done a lot of searching on how exactly to expand the series. They didn’t simply say hey let’s go Go Karting, but instead it was during the searching when Red Bull stepped up and said “hey, maybe we can help you”. As an avid Formula 1 fan, any time Red Bull approaches you with anything to do with racing, it’s probably a good idea to take them up on it. After all, they have dominated the highest form of racing for nearly 5 years now, and it doesn’t look like ending any time soon. On top of that, they own the rights to whom is arguably the best driver in the world today, and thus, ever-increasing their overall popularity.
That’s all well and good, but what does that have to do with Karting? Karting is often the first stepping stone in a F1 career and many of the drivers started off there. Although much less powerful, the two types of craft do have a similar driving style. It’s a combination of events that seems impossible to fail.
