Angry Birds Rio has been a wild success across all its available platforms. In the count, both paid and free versions are included, PC World notes. Rio’s success is a hopeful outlook for mobile games, proving that a series approach is great marketing as well. Rovio has no plans of letting up, with update editions for Rio already scheduled through this year.
Universal Studios is turning to Android for some marketing prosperity as well. It’s commissioned Gameloft to develop the official game for its upcoming flick Fast Five. The action-thriller, to be released April 29, is the latest installment from the Fast and the Furious franchise. With Gameloft’s existing line-up of mobile games, which include high-speed racers and first-person shooters, you can expect the forthcoming game to be equally exciting.
