An Angry Birds Tumblr went online recently with a single post on it reading, "Welcome to the Angry Birds Tumblr page. Over the next few weeks we’ll have behind-the-scenes content, animations, comics, and much, much more. But what will this all be about exactly?! Here’s a clue…"

From the sounds of it, all this is going to be revealed at Times Square in New York City on October 8th at 10am EST. It seems too soon for a Bad Piggies spin-off, although what's immediately jumping out at me is some Star Wars space ship building thing, borrowing some of the floaty physics and planetoid orbiting gimmicks from Angry Birds Space. Maybe? What do you guys think this is all about?

    I just wish we had some decent Star Wars games, or old retro games like Dark Forces and Rogue Squadron could do well on iOS. Complete lack of decent Star Wars games, big shame.

    • Chefbot

      I'm still kinda disappointed that Battlefront 3 was axed.

    • Rickard Olsson

      Couldn't agree more!

  • Tommy141

    Maybe it's just a new planet in Angry Birds Space? It does seem like something more though...

  • Deamon34

    As long as Lucas Arts isn't involved it should be good.

  • Deixa

    Sick of angry birds. I deleted them all only kept seasons.

  • zergslayer69

    Looks like I can 3 star every level now, just force push the level over. Or use Jedi mind tricks on the pigs to make them blow themselves up.

  • ImJPaul

    Welp. I'm not complaining. Sounds like a very entertaining combination. They've only gone uphill since the start.

  • cesarperrin

    You underestimate the power of the Pork Side.

  • xepiczx

    Not really looking forward to this

  • Eegah

    hey is this the place where I can complain about how mainstream angry birds is and ride my fixie and drink fair trade and listen to toro y moi

  • Professionalbum

    I'm truly enjoying Bad Piggies. I guess they have to continue the usual formula to appeal the causal gamer-meh.

    Again, poor reporting from Mr Eli here. On the Tumblr post's last line, it clearly says "HINT: Head to Toys R Us at 8am EST!"

    It is safe to assume that with Toys r US in the pic, this is going to be some kind of merchandize, figurine or some other form of a physical game.

    • NoahDavid

      What do you expect? There's a reason he's not writing for the NY Times.

  • Austin Riddle

    Angry Birds is $hit, there I said it.

  • Isaacquartz

    I don't think we should expect anything game related. It's probably some merchandizing stuff. BTW, Bad Piggies is great. Cannot wait for more levels.

  • B.utthead

    *sigh*
    I'm sick of this mobile game. It's so overrated and it's conquering the world.
    Sucks it is blending with mayor franchises.

  • Nate

    George Lucas will be randomly inserting various CGI Angry Birds into the next super-special Blu-Ray edition of the Star Wars movies, obviously.

  • Jeremy8778

    Anyone know what happened to StarWars battle of the Hoth? I still have a copy but I see it's no longer available.
