In the band's latest effort to "take the brand to places where no band has gone before", band member Gene Simmons has revealed that its in talks with Angry Birds maker Rovio with regards to a collaboration.

"We're talking with Angry Birds, KISS and Angry Birds, which will become a deal," he said, also confirming that discussions with "Sony games" are also in progress.

Without actually confirming any titles, Simmons said: "We are really trying to take it in areas that haven't been done before and have stayed out of the marketplace because the ideas simply weren't exciting enough. So while the gaming world is waiting for the KISS games that are going to explode, we're busy taking the brand to places where no band has gone before."

But Simmons says they are, despite possible misconceptions, conscious of retaining the brand values of the band. "Unless the deal is right and unless the content is exciting to our fans, we don't do it," he told Industry Gamers.

"Hello Kitty is one of the biggest brands on planet Earth. Now there's KISS Hello Kitty, which we've already launched in 90 countries," he noted earlier in the exact same interview.

Hmm...
