It appears that some kind of Star Wars and Angry Birds crossover is in the works. Rovio launched a new Angry Birds tumblr account today, with this sneaky *.gif.
What is the black bird doing with that cloak and lightsaber? Apparently the world will find out on Monday morning, with an announcement live from New York. The text reads: "Times Square, New York, October 8th, 10am EST. HINT: Head to Toys R Us at 8am EST!"
It's pretty clearly Star Wars, but as to whether it's a new game, a set of toys, or something else altogether, well, we'll just have to wait until next week to know.
