Rovio gives a bit more details about 'Angry Birds Space'

Last week, Rovio announced via a "teaser" trailer that the next version of the blockbuster mobile game 'Angry Birds' will be based on space. Angry Birds Space will launch on March 22nd, presumably for Android, iOS and PC (if not for all platforms).
Today, Rovio North America general manager Andrew Stalbow has given a bit more detail into the game, claiming the game will prominently feature "zero gravity levels and slow-motion puzzles."

Furthermore, the company announced two big brand partnerships, NASA and National Geographic: "Science and education are very important to us, and we're very excited to have NASA and National Geographic as launch partners on Angry Birds Space."

Rovio recently launched Angry Birds for Facebook, and the game already has 840,000 daily active users. Overall, the game in all its iterations has been downloaded over 600 million times.
