Angry Birds Star Wars was released last week and gamers are loving it. Many critics and fans feel that it’s the best Angry Birds game ever. This has people speculating that there will be future Angry Birds games based on popular movies, TV shows, and comic books, similar to how there are several LEGO titles that use the same core game mechanics and embellish them based on licenses. What mashups would you like to see in the future? Let’s play create your own Angry Birds!
Personally, I’d love to see classic movies used in absurd ways. I’m thinking Angry Birds Casablanca, Angry Birds Gone With the Wind, and Angry Birds Singin’ in the Rain. That probably won’t happen. If anything, future crossovers will be similar to the LEGO games — popular licenses of movies and comic books. Am cry.
What’s the Angry Birds game swimming around in your head? Do you want to see Angry Birds DC Comics? Maybe you’re up for Angry Birds Lord of the Rings? Leave a comment below with your Angry Birds concoction (please!).
