National Geographic Releases Angry Birds Issue
Some might call it the death knell of the magazine industry, but the critically acclaimed monthly magazine series has just released an Angry Birds issue.
Well, National Geographic Kids has.The "Special Issue" is designed to take kids on an "exciting adventure," led by the titular Angry Birds as they explore the seven continents.
Meet bottlenose dolphins in North America, lions in Africa, giant pandas in Asia, and more. Readers also will get a personal tour of cool landmarks such as Machu Picchu and the Colosseum, meet people from fascinating cultures, and play fun games that have a global twist.
This is actually the second National Geographic publication to feature the Angry Birds franchise. The first was a book called "National Geographic Angry Birds: 50 Stories of the Fed Up, Feathered, and Furious," which was a book about getting to know all of the bird species featured in the Angry Birds franchise and featured a meshing of graphics from Rovio and photography from National Geographic.
So fear not National Geographic fans! Rovio has not tainted your beloved, critically acclaimed, existing-since-1888 publication. It's just an example of modern media interacting with a longstanding bastion of the print world. You can pick up the special issue on the National Geographic website.
