Cancel the restaurant. Rovio is taking its hit game to Facebook on February 14th.

Is there anywhere left for Angry Birds to go after more than 700 million downloads on every conceivable format?

Well, yes. The big one. Facebook.

Peter Vesterbacka, Rovio's self-styled Mighty Eagle has told Penn-Olsen that the company will hold a formal launch in Jakarta, Indonesia, to confirm its Facebook move.

The location consolidates the firm's desire to target emerging markets, a drive that began with a partnership last year with Nokia to pre-load the game on the handset maker's Asha low-cost smartphones.

Rovio's ultimate aim is a billion downloads.

The Facebook game will support social features and offer virtual items for 99 cents.
