Iron Maiden And Angry Birds, Together At Last
This week in unexpected-but-adorable collaborations: Rovio Entertainment, the creators of the international smartphone phenomenon Angry Birds, have teamed up with metal legends/reason Kerrang! exists, Iron Maiden, for a special version of Angry Birds Evolution.
As one of the most recognisable figures in metal, Eddie, Maiden’s iconic mascot, will be a playable character as “Eddie The Bird” in Angry Birds Evolution this Halloween. That’s good fun!
“Our team is filled with massive Iron Maiden fans and Eddie was both our first choice & a natural fit in Angry Birds Evolution,” said Miika Tams, VP Games and Product Lead for Angry Birds Evolution, “It’s about time his status as a true rock icon was celebrated and we know that fans will love seeing Eddie The Bird raise hell on Bird Island!”
Players can crank up their Angry Birds Evolution team on October 18 during a special two week character event for a very metal Halloween. Players who successfully recruit what everyone’s calling Eddie The Bird to their team during that time will be able to keep him forever.
Check out the various iterations of Eddie-as-Angry-Bird below:
