The next destination for Rovio's Angry Birds appears to be a galaxy far, far away. Today, Rovio launched a new Tumblr account with an image that depicts what appears to be a bird from the franchise donning a Star Wars-esque robe and wielding a lightsaber.

Eh...
Rovio isn't backing out anytime soon.
It was fun the first few times but this has gone beyond the joke, add more levels why do you need a new game every few months.

I haven't played Angry Piggies yet but It sounds and looks pretty good and most importantly "Different"
It appears to be a lot like Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts, one of my favorite games and Xbox games of all time!

I feel a volcano of anger and hate will erupt in this thread so I'm going to disappear while this does.

Let's hope this is something different, would hate to see Star Wars exploited by money grabbers.

I understand they don't want the title to die along with all of the other apps that have been and gone. But there's only so much you can do, this is getting old.

Haha indeed, It practically "rules" mobile gaming.
No original content just flinging a damn bird, every game!

It's not even an original game anyway, it's Crush the Castle with new backgrounds, sprites, and animations. Sure, that's half the game changed right there, but it's still not that original. I'd rather play Crush the Castle than this in the first place.

Angry Birds is likely more popular because of the cute birds and pigs though. redface.gif It is easier to market and merchandise cute things to a broader audience.

Indeed, they're mascots like Sonic and Mario, however they could at least add some "original" content, Angry Birds space is pretty cool and fun and different, the original was unique for It's self not noting crush the castle. But then there's the other Angry Birds games and a theme park, toys, accessories...

The Google Play Store has udders, and Rovio is yanking on them with extreme force.
Sure I can accept they're trying to make money and a living off of these games but the only original ones is the Original and Space.

I don't hate on the fact people enjoy it, they enjoy it and as long as the developers can produce this enjoyment their players and or customers are happy, I like a bit of Angry Birds too, It's kind of pointless fun to pass time but what's next? bring some originality into the concept, don't let the oil well run dry!

True, but nothing is original anymore.
Every game is based off another in one way or another. Be it in storyline, gameplay, characters, etc.
