Frogmind Studios has unveiled a new Rumbler for its popular sports meets Angry Birds game, Rumble Stars. Alongside this upcoming new character, there have also been several balance changes that look to shake up the meta considerably.

The new Rumbler is called the Mighty Mole and players will be able to unlock him once they've managed to reach Sen Palace, 1st Division. His energy cost is 2 and on the field, he can tunnel underground to avoid income projectiles from opposing Rumblers. He doesn't shoot but will pass to his teammates. You can see a glimpse of this upcoming Rumbler in the video below.
