Rovio today announced a new version of its popular Angry Birds game after hinting about it yesterday on Twitter. The upcoming Angry Birds Stella features the "fierce and feisty" female lead character, Stella, along with her "friends and (fr)enemies."

Angry Birds Stella will open a door to a part of the Angry Birds universe you've never seen before! There will be plenty of fun and adventure, but the bunch of passionate pals will also have to deal with some serious issues in order to protect their friendship and the environment they live in. Luckily, Stella and her friends are good at finding creative solutions!

Angry Birds Stella is expected to launch sometime this fall on iOS, as Rovio is also expected to tie-in animations, books, toys and more with its new title.

Rovio has rocketed to success on the back of the original Angry Birds title for the iPhone, bringing the game to other platforms and producing a line of Angry Birds-branded merchandising.

Besides Angry Birds, Rovio has also released other titles such as Bad Piggies [Direct Link] and Amazing Alex [Direct Link] games.

Dear Rovio

1. The Fonz only jumped the shark once. Step away from the bike.

2. You've gone to the well a few too many times. That's mud in the bucket in case you didn't know.

3. The birds aren't angry anymore. They're just tired.

None of the comments above have anything to do with women. Rovio has simply run out of idea. <- Not plural.

edit: Reason077 correctly pointed out to me that Arthur Fonzarelli actually jumped the shark on waterskis. Good catch and so much for my revisionist history.

Why all the negativity? If you don't like it, don't buy it. Also, it's too early to know what new aspects may be introduced to the gameplay.

How many versions of Call of Duty have there been already, and more to follow?

If you have a hit piece of software, you run with it...

Has anyone said about Apple 'Come on chaps, this computer and phone thing, you've done it enough now - stop making those and only sell something totally new and untested.'

No, you come up with other ideas whilst still selling and modifying what has proven to be successful already, this just makes sense, surely?
