Star Wars Angry Birds hinted at by Rovio
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
Rovio’s recent spinoff of the Angry Birds series, Bad Piggies, proved the studio still has what it takes to top the mobile gaming charts.
Yesterday the studiotweeted a mysterious picture encouraging followers to check back today for a hint. The image gave few clues outside of the fact it was probably a fowl covered in some kind of blanket or robe. A follow-up photo and a link to the new Angry Birds Tumblr page sheds a lot of light (no pun intended) on what’s coming soon.
The animated image on the Tumblr page shows a figure wearing a Star Wars robe and holding a light saber. When the saber is activated, the light illuminates the character’s face, revealing it is indeed a member of the Angry Bird gang. A note below the image reads: Times Square, New York, October 8th, 10 a.m. EST. Furthermore, a “hint” suggests you should head to Toys R Us at 8 a.m. EST.
So yet another Angry Birds game is in the works? Lets wait and find out.
