Rovio's kart racer 'Angry Birds Go!' is getting multiplayer next spring

The Mario Kart-like Angry Birds Go! will be updated with an important new mode in 2014.

Angry Birds Go! launched last week on tablets and smartphones, and our reviewer Matt Swider enjoyed it despite some flaws.

But the single-player game would surely benefit from the inclusion of multiplayer modes, a staple for kart racers since Super Mario Kart debuted on the Super Nintendo more than 20 years ago.

Luckily Rovio has confirmed that multiplayer is coming—"Who wants to see multiplayer in Angry Birds Go!?" the developer asked on Facebook. "It's coming in spring!"

It remains to be seen whether players will stay interested in the solo play long enough for that to matter, but we're guessing the answer will be yes.
