Green Day has teamed up with video game developer Rovio to create a new musical episode for the ubiquitous ‘Angry Birds Friends’ mobile game franchise.
The ‘Angry Birds: Green Day Edition’ includes 10 never-before-seen themed levels and new “bad pig” characters inspired by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and his bandmates Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool.
The band recently posted an update on its Facebook account revealing that “Green Day [have] been hanging with Angry Birds Friends… stay tuned for more.” Accompanying the Facebook post was a link to greenday-game.angrybirds.com, which featured an image of a winged blue pig, a link to the ’Angry Birds Friends’ Facebook app and a trailer featuring video highlight of actual game play.
The new episodes feature content including the latest Green Day single ‘Oh Love’ and an exclusive new unlockable song titled ‘Troublemaker,’ with updates planned for later this fall providing even more exclusive content and levels. “We’re all fans of Angry Birds,” raves Armstrong in a press release. “It’s such an addictive game that when we first started playing it we couldn’t stop. Go Team Green!”
