In fact, it seems to be even more popular according to the latest numbers announced by Rovio. According to Rovio, their latest Angry Birds Space netted 10 million downloads in less than three day. That’s quite an accomplishment, and to put things into perspective, it took Angry Birds Rio ten days to reach 10 million downloads.

Samsung and Rovio were on hand at SXSW today to give people an early hands-on with the upcoming Angry Birds Space. This next iteration of Angry Birds aims to turn the series upside down with out-of-this-world levels and gravity challenged gameplay.

It’s also a chance for Rovio and Samsung to announce the exclusive Angry Birds content coming to the Galaxy Note once the game is released.
