New mining episode of Angry Birds on its way

It takes a lot to upstage Apple’s WWDC keynote, but plucky games developer Rovio is certainly having a crack at stealing some of Steve Job’s thunder. The publisher has announced on Twitter that a new mining-themed chapter of Angry Birds is on its way, releasing this official preview video.

Angry Birds Mine and Dine is set “in the dark, damp underbelly of the Angry Birds World”. As you can see from the video, the gameplay is the same as the original, except this time there are mining hats, stalactites, trolleys and picks scattered across the levels.

Rovio confirmed on Twitter that Mine and Dine will be an additional episode in the Angry Birds series rather than a new chapter within Angry Birds Seasons. Mine and Dine will be released for iOS, Android and Symbian (sorry Windows Phone users, you’ll have to keep waiting!)
