Rovio is a well known game development studio that has a major hit under its belt. Angry Birds is no longer a game, its a franchise. Its even bigger than that, as Angry Birds has secured its place in the pop culture of today. There have been many editions of this amazing and addictive game. Its available for almost every platform out there, be it desktop or mobile. By the looks of it, Rovio has not yet called it a day on Angry Birds and it is feverishly working on improving the overall experience as well as offering more to its loyal user base.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, then again who isn’t?, then something really amazing is coming your way. At least it looks like it. On Tumblr today Rovio has teased what seems to be Angry Birds Star Wars edition. What do you think, is the battle between birds and the pigs that stole their eggs being transported to a galaxy far far away?
Rovio took to their official Tumblr page and posted a GIF that subtly reveals what the next Angry Birds edition is going to be. Before the release of this new edition takes place, Rovio will be releasing some toys first on October 8 at Toys R US in Times Square, New York City at 8 am EST. An announcement is expected to be made their around 10 am EST.
An independent news outlet has already confirmed that Rovio is indeed partnering up with the Star Wars brand to release an Angry Birds game that revolves around the popular franchise. An executive at Lucasfilm has already opened up about this partnership to said media outlet. While Star Wars is a brand and a franchise that is not going away anytime soon, it will surely help promoting it even more as Lucasfilm partners with Rovio to present its iconic Star Wars brand in a modern and fun way.
Rovio is said to release Angry Birds Star Wars edition on October 28. Hopefully we will have a bit more insight on this matter once the announcement takes place on October 8.
