Rovio Entertainment announced that a race-themed title is coming for Angry Birds fans. The title will be born out of a deal signed by Rovio with Formula One driver Heikki Kovalainen. The deal had Kovalainen wearing an Angry Birds-themed helmet during the Australian Grand Prix.
It looks like Rovio will take advantage of this deal with Kovalainen to launch an Angry Birds racing-themed title by spring together with a co-branded merchandising line. Kovalainen was also said to be working on a few levels for the racing game.
"We're so excited to be working with Heikki on this, the first partnership of its kind in F1, the helmet looks amazing, and we think people are really going to enjoy the webgame and merchandise," said Harri Koponen, executive vice president of products at Rovio.
