Angry Birds Go! Seems To Be An Effective Blend Of Mario Kart And MotorStorm

When Nintendo first detailed Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS, it looked as though the game was taking a leaf out of MotorStorm’s book, introducing elements like shortcuts, off-roading and air-time.

 

Ultimately, however, Mario Kart 7 isn’t really all that different from its predecessors, and the Blue Shell is as annoying as ever. Luckily, it looks like Angry Birds developer Rovio aren’t as scared of spicing the kart-racing genre up a little more.

 

Above is a trailer for Angry Birds Go!, a kart racer headed to iOS, Android, Windows Phone 8 and Blackberry 10, that seems to blend the best of Mario Kart and MotorStorm into a single game. There are upgradable karts, gliding, off-roading, air-time, and a general sense of speed and freedom that’s been sorely lacking in Mario Kart games.

 

Yes, it’s a phone game, but Rovio did eventually bring Angry Birds to consoles, so it would make complete sense for this game to be brought over as well. Angry Birds Go! is slated for release on the aforementioned devices on December 11th.

    Say what you want, but I’m interested. However, phone game, not happening, EVER.

      I think the only interesting thing about it is that it’s a phone game. No really high quality kart racers on mobile.

    You think Rovio will be done milking a franchise anytime this decade?

    Just this morning I was at a Toys ‘R Us and saw “Angry Birds Go!” toys and I was like “o.O Why are they in vehicles?” The timing of this announcement is uncanny.

    It’s pretty scary how fast this series has rooted and spread itself around the world like a wild vine.

  • Kintaro

    Well…now we just have to wait until they release angry birds soccer, angry birds tennis and angry birds rpg; we need more games like these -_-

    This should’ve been named something like Road Rage. You know, because those birds are angry.
