Angry Birds Fight gameplay

Get ready for battle Japanese-style, says Rovio. Angry Birds Fight mashes up Angry Birds characters with Japanese cultural elements in this match-three puzzler with RPG elements. It's the first title in the Angry Birds series to properly implement real-time player vs player action.

"Fighters start the game with a race against the clock to match as many panels as possible to power up birds for the fight against other players around the world. They can then equip themselves with the ultimate battle tools to get the edge when they come under attack. It’s fight or flight as players can also explore uncharted islands where they face unexpected battles with rogue challengers, and have to battle to stay in the game," says Rovio.

See more details on Angry Birds Fight gameplay in the trailer below.
