Angry Birds Space was launched at the dizzyingly high Sky 100 Hong Kong Observation Deck recently - the highest celebration to publicise the new game, which also staged events in Beijing, Helsinki, Seattle and Tokyo.
Henri Holm, senior vice-president of Rovio Asia, said: "We needed to find a really special location for the worldwide launch of Angry Birds Space, and Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck has that wow factor as Hong Kong's tallest indoor observation deck.
"It's a wonderful platform for fans to experience the fun of Angry Birds Space first-hand.
"We decided to hold the launch in Hong Kong as there are many fans of Angry Birds in the city."
The latest instalment in this game sees the return of all our favourite feathered friends, and six new birds that will be flung out into the far regions of the universe to pound pigs into meteor dust.
From floating through space in zero gravity, to using the gravitational pull of nearby planets to set up spectacular trick shots, Angry Birds Space takes the game to a totally new level.
The new game's additional birds come with new superpowers - plus there is a whole galaxy of new levels and stages that players can enjoy.
Angry Birds Space is available now for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices, as well as the Mac and PC, with PC retail copies to follow shortly.
