Earlier this week our good friend Ina Fried from allthingsd was Tweeting from Finland. While over there she stopped by for a chat with Rovio Mobile’s CEO Mikael Hed. The face of Rovio Mobile is usually their marketing guy Peter Vestabacka, who goes by “Mighty Eagle”.
In the sit down with Hed, they talked about the success of Rovio Mobile and how their characters are licensed on everything from cat toys to balloons and even fruit snacks. Any way you measure it Angry Birds has been a huge success.
Most people don’t realize this but Angry Birds was 50+ games in the making. The mobile gaming giant began making games for the other big Finnish company Nokia. After mediocre success Angry Birds became their big break. How do you follow up Angry Birds? Who knows?
However Fried was able to get Hed to admit that they do have the follow game in development. Hed even suggested it would be ready in a couple of months.
We can’t wait right?
