NetEnt recently released the roadmap for their third quarter, detailing the upcoming releases we should expect over the next three months. Now, although it comes out after NRVNA: THE NXT XPERIENCE, the first footage of When Pigs Fly has been released.
Set to launch on July 21st, When Pigs Fly features – you guessed it – pigs. However, these piggys aren’t anything like the Angry Birds characters or just pigs with wings: these pigs are astronauts and they’re going to space! The characters and animation style have been linked to the old 90’s cartoon Ren and Stimpy, plus the symbols are a little retro as well. That said, there is an undeniable futuristic vibe, so we’re particularly impressed at how NetEnt have managed to merge these two eras together.
Similarly to Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, When Pigs Fly has a unique layout. The first layour features one symbol in each outer reel, three on reels 2 and 5 and five on the middle reel, though this changes as you play. Overtime, you could very well end up with a 5×5 grid and there are 3125 ways to win! So, how and why does the layout transform? When you get re-spins, each opens up two new symbols on the reels whilst a counter on the side shows you how many re-spins you have left. Get a winning combo with your last re-spin and you’ll receive a further eight free spins to play with and fill in the layout. As far as NetEnt’s Q3 roadmap goes, we’re sure we’ll love all of it but for now we are more than excited for When Pigs Fly.
