Back on February 17th, we brought you the first teaser trailer for ROVIO’s next big game, Angry Birds Space. With ABS, ROVIO is looking to not just add a few new levels to the same old gameplay, with Space they are looking to utilize physics and gravity like nobody else.

With the help of NASA, ROVIO made a video with a real Astronaut within the International Space Station. This video gives players an idea of what it will be like when you “fling” a bird in zero gravity, including the gravitational pull from things like planetary bodies. After a little education, we are treated to a little gameplay footage thats supposed to look like its playing on a Galaxy Note from Samsung. The game looks fun and impressive. At the end of the video we are once again told that Angry Birds Space will release on iOS, Android, Mac and PC on March 22nd.
