Rovio has just released an "Epic" trailer for an as-yet unnamed Angry Birds game. And, by the looks of things, the world-conquering franchise is about to step into the realms of fantasy.
The video itself (see below) opens on a handsomely rendered suit of armour. The camera rises up the suit while a bombastic, Skyrim-esque choir and the sound of swords clashing swell in the background. Once the camera reaches the helmet, the pops open to reveal the Red Bird sitting inside.
Given the fantasy theme of the teaser, it wouldn't be huge leap to suggest that the Angry Birds are going a bit sword-and-sorcery for their next adventure.
In fact, as Angry Birds Nest spotted, if you pause Rovio's New Year / New Tricks video at just the right moment, you can clearly see a stencil of the birds wielding bows and swords. One of them is even wearing Gandalf-style hat.
However, though we don't know much, we do know that the game will be soft-launched in Canada and Australia before rolling out globally. As soon as the game goes live, we'll let you know.
