3,000 Walmart stores will be advertising Angry Birds Space in a in-store promotion throughout their stores for the very first time. Several game clues will be hidden in selected limited edition Angry Birds Space merchandise starting on the 25th March.
Walmart is in the process of developing an Angry Birds Facebook page, which will be opened tomorrow. Fans who choose to ‘Like’ the page will have access to one of four ‘Golden Eggsteroid‘ clues, which will unlock secret levels from within the game.
“We wanted to give our fans a unique retail extension to Angry Birds Space that rewards them for their eagle eyes,” said Peter Vesterbacka, chief marketing officer and Mighty Eagle of Rovio Entertainment.
“Only Walmart can deliver the reach across America for this type of programm and we wish our fans luck as they seek out our hidden clues.”
