Rovio has just released a teaser website of its new game Angry Birds Heikki. It seems the new game is a spinoff of the Finnish game developer’s highly popular Angry Birds franchise, which is looks to focus more on racing.
Typing ‘heikki.angrybirds.com’ on your browser will take you to the teaser image. Taking a look at the page source shows the phrase, “Where’s Heikki’s F1 racing helmet gone?! The Angry Birds have a hunch!”
If you’re not familiar with the name Heikki, the name refers to Heikki Kovalainen, a Finnish F1 driver. This suggests that an Angry Birds racing game is coming on the 18th of June 2012.
Does this mean that Rovio will be releasing a racing game like Nintendo’s Mario Kart? Honestly, this has been overdone for ages. It’s also possible that the teaser website is referring to version of Angry Birds sponsoring the Formula 1 driver rather than a full-blown sequel to Angry Birds. After all, Rovio has just recently launched Angry Birds Space. We’ll just have to wait and see until Rovio launches the game for devices such as the Apple iPhone 4S and the Samsung Galaxy S3 next month to know for sure.
