Insanely popular mobile game Angry Birds is trying to take over another insanely popular (and lucrative) gaming platform: Facebook. The company had announced the game previously and have now confirmed it will launch in May.This is interesting because the game dynamics of Angry Birds are completely different from Facebook games. Will players get the same instinctive rush of pleasure “flicking” birds at pigs with a mouse as they do on a touchscreen? Or will the game simply use the characters for a completely different kind of gameplay?

Rovio CEO Mikael Hed will only say that Angry Birds on Facebook will have “completely new aspects to it that just haven’t been experienced in any other platform,” and that the game will leverage Facebook’s “collaborative nature.”

Along with its very popular plush toys, this smart strategy of taking a beloved brand to so many platforms is further indicative of why the best potential acquirer for Rovio is Disney →
