The popular mobile-phone game Angry Birds is once again helping a new payments product take flight, with the introduction of a prepaid card with designs based on the game's theme.

The card, from Kaiku Finance LLC, will be made available next year. The game's designer, Rovio Mobile Ltd., two years ago introduced a separate payment system of its own design to allow customers to make in-game purchases that would be added to their phone bill. That system, which is unrelated to the prepaid card, is called Bad Piggy Bank, named after the game's villains.
