Rovio Teases Star Wars Themed Angry Birds – Is it a Game or Toy Line?

This morning, Rovio is has many folks excited with the above image they released to their Twitter feed. As you can see, that bird is carrying a light saber, the favored weapon of the Jedi whom exist in the world of Star Wars. In the tweet, Rovio links to their Tumblr, which gives instructions for people to meet at Toys R Us at Times Square in New York on October 8th.

So, could Rovio be just making a toy line? I wouldn’t see them stopping there, as it wouldn’t shock me to see an add-on to Angry Birds Space, or possibly a whole new game called Angry Birds Star Wars. That would sell. We’re just days away fom Oct. 8, so we’ll keep you posted.

    What happened with the Eagles tie in and the Green Day co-op? Finish some stuff already.

    • No one wants some Green Day Angry Birds garbage lol

  • Greyhame

    Has George Lucas gone absolutely insane??

    It really has turned into what Mel Brooks satirized: “Star Wars, The Search for More Money”

          How about porting the old star wars games to android Mr.Lucas? I’d love me some Rogue Squadron or even the original trench run on my phone.
          Or the jedi games Like the speeder bike or Port the old super N or 64 star wars games, and make some more money off those again, I’d buy them all.

    • Blinky, the 3-eyed fish

      That would be “Spaceballs: The Search for More Money”

    ” a light saber, the favored weapon of the Jedi whom exist in the world of Star Wars.”

    Dude, you do not have to explain what a light saber is to us. Methinks you misunderestimate your reader base 😛
