Rovio Teams Up With Hasbro to Launch an Angry Birds Transformers Mash-Up Nobody Wanted

Hot on the heels of its free RPG title Angry Birds Epic being released to the App Store, Rovio Entertainment announced today that Angry Birds Transformers is coming soon to iOS devices.

The Birds/Transformers mash-up will include tie-in products and "telepods", just like the last time Rovio teamed up with Hasbro for their Star Wars-themed game.
