Now what could this be? Barely weeks after releasing the Angry Birds spinoff game, called “Bad Piggies”, Rovio (via its Angry Birds Tumblr page), released an animated .gif file – and little else. It did mention that over the next few weeks the page will be updated with “behind-the-scenes content, animations, comics, and much, much more”.
Also, it teased a date and time, and even a location, probably meaning that this apparent Star Wars crossover will be launched at Times Square, New York later tonight – at the Toys R Us store located there.
*Update: It looks like it won’t be a new Angry Birds game, as the Idle Hands blog has revealed a whole set of Star Wars – Angry Birds mashup merchandises, such as the Star Wars Angry Birds Jenga Death Star, Star Wars Early Angry Birds Figure Pack, and a new line of plushies and even costumes.
