Buckle up Angry Birds fans, as we may soon see those angry little birds dueling with those villainous pigs with a lightsaber. Rovio has posted a tweet on Twitter promoting the “Next big thing” with an animated image of a Star Wars themed Angry Birds, with a red bird dressed up as a Jedi and wielding a lightsaber.
Rovio states that “Times Square, New York, October 8th, 10am EST” is the place and time when things will apparently be announced, but there’s no saying if this will be a new Angry Birds game or just toys based on the franchise, but we’ll be hopeful and lean on the former.
Hang tight for more news on this. Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader may soon come back reincarnated as a bird and pig. The Force is strong with this one.
