Weird collaboration news: Finland’s Rovio Entertainment (creator of Angry Birds) and Green Day have teamed up to launch a new musical episode for Angry Birds Friends. The episode features 10 never-before-seen themed levels, as well as all new bad pig characters inspired by band members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool. Fans can also access specially created content, including Green Day’s latest single Oh Love, and an exclusive song Troublemaker. This is the first time Rovio has offered an innovative blend of music, video, and gameplay. Updates for the Green Day episode, coming later this fall, will provide even more exclusive content and levels.
“We’re all fans of Angry Birds,” said Armstrong. “It’s such an addictive game that when we first started playing it we couldn’t stop. Go Team Green!”
“We are beyond excited,” commented Rovio CMO and Mighty Eagle Peter Vesterbacka. “Two amazing brands working together on a one-of-a-kind collaboration – we can’t wait for our fans to explore this new Green Day world.”
