I’ll be first to admit that a new addition to Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise is not something we’d usually rush to cover. However, when the trailer to Angry Birds Transformers looks like it’s ripped directly from a worn VHS and scored with NEW MUSIC FROM THE COMPOSER OF THE 1986 ANIMATED MOVIE, it’s hard to resist the masterful pulls of nostalgia. Watch!
Birds Disguised As Robots In Disguise. It’s just irresistible. As a bonus, here’s composers Vince DiCola and Kenny Meriedeth talking about their process for making the new track:
It’s such a shame that it’s taken Rovio to make something more faithful to the original material than the awful Hollywood efforts. The game, of course, isn’t going to play like this, and is bound to be riddled with in-app purchases, but this lovely call-out to fans of the Generation 1 models is enough to at least make me give it a try.
Angry Birds Transformers will be out for all your favourite mobile devices on October 15th.
