To celebrate the launch of Angry Birds Space, Rovio and partners hosted a series of launch events for fans of the Angry Birds game in Beijing, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Seattle and Tokyo. In Hong Kong, the launching ceremony for the new game was held at Sky 100 — an observation deck on the 100th floor of Hong Kong’s tallest building. Yeah, it’s probably the best place for the birds to get ready to blasts off into space. Check out the awesomeness of the launch with a video and lots of pictures after the break !
Just walk straight through this corridor and you will see the birds and pigs ready to take off to the universe !
A giant poster featuring the new, even-angrier-looking red bird is pasted on the window of the indoor observation deck, looks cool !
At the top of 100 floor building, you can experience a 360 degree panoramic view of Hong Kong city at 393 metres above sea level.
Maxim’s Cake shop (a well-known bakery in Hong Kong) has a whole range of Angry Birds cakes, and fans are welcomed to have a bite of the cup cakes.

A journalist was so hungry that he couldn’t resist to eat the red birds (cup cake) on the spot !
The bakery shop has provided special cakes like this one that’s shaped like the new Super Red Bird. There’s another one that’s shaped like the new Laser Bird.
A box of new merchandise for Angry Birds Space which includes a plush, t-shirt featuring the Laser Bird, and a National Geographic Angry Birds Space book that mixes images of the bird characters with facts about space, the solar system and gravity.
Hong Kong media and Angry Birds fans are invited to attend the launching ceremony.

This is the first time we see an official Angry Birds capsule vending machine. The machine offers mini-keychains of the characters from the Angry Birds game, HKD$10 (US$1.29) for each key chain.
The new game support the new iPad retina screen, but Rovio only provide an Android tablet (Lenovo Thinkpad) for demo.
