Epic Angry Birds teaser channels Dark Souls Preview

When you think about Angry Birds, “epic” is probably not the first word that comes to mind, but that is the mood that developer Rovio Entertainment is going for in a recently released teaser for a new Angry Birds game.

As you can see in the video below, epic music plays in the background as the camera slowly shows a medieval suit of armor that looks like something out of Dark Souls, only to reveal the franchise’s signature red avian is hiding in its helmet.

Calling it “the most epic soft launch ever,” Rovio says the game will hit Australia and Canada first (territories where mobile developers often test their games before launching them worldwide), then other countries.

Rovio also recently announced another Angry Birds game starring a new character, Stella, set to release in fall 2014.
