Looking for the best place to experience Angry Birds Space when it lands on March 22? All signs point to the Samsung Galaxy Note, oddly enough. Rovio has revealed that the Galaxy Note version of its imminent spacefaring fowl-flinger will pack 30 levels for the fine cost of "free", according to Phandroid. Better yet, Galaxy Note-owners will get one exclusive level.
Rovio and Samsung showed as much this week during the South by Southwest (SxSW) event in Austin, Texas this week. More specifically, players that pick up the ambitious game through a Galaxy Note will score the Danger Zone content pack for free. The 30 levels packed in that update will be available to Angry Birds fans sans a Note as an in-game purchase.
Even better (or worse for those without a Note), the Danger Zone content pack also unlocks access to the Lazer Bird, which has special powers and shows off the Note's "beautiful display," according to Phandroid. (Note the name.) Check out what Angry Birds Space looks like on a Galaxy Note below:
Rovio is hooked up with a ton of partners for the upcoming release of Angry Birds Space, and it just added Samsung to that exhaustive list. When Angry Birds Space lands on Android, iOS, PC and Mac this March 22, it will also launch on Samsung's new Android-based Galaxy Note smartphone-meets-tablet device ... thing.
Samsung confirmed to PocketGamer that Rovio will create exclusive content for Angry Birds Space on the Galaxy Note. It will be interesting to see how Angry Birds Space plays out on the manufacturer's answer to the growing tablet craze. Flicking angry avian creatures with a stylus rather than your finger could make for an interesting sensation. (Alright, fine, we're just looking to give this silly device some benefit of the doubt here.)
At any rate, between this announcement and launch partners like NASA, Angry Birds Space looks to be the biggest release in the series yet, and the biggest release for Rovio ever. Based on previous performance of Angry Birds, though, we doubt the Finnish developer has much to worry about. Check the nod to every Battlestar Galactica fan's favorite robot in the trailer below:
