Everton football club fans are not best pleased about the hideous new Angry Birds logo on their players' sleeves.
Rovio, the developer of Angry Birds, has today confirmed plans to lay off 110 staff and close one of its studios.
This just in: Angry Birds Star Wars 2 has an actual actor from the original Star Wars trilogy lending their vocal talent to the game - and amazingly it's not Mark Hamill.
UPDATE# 2 Angry Birds Star Wars 2's scannable figurines will simply be based on QR codes.
Kotaku got a sneak peek at the figurines at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, where it revealed that the bottoms of each figurine contian a tiny QR code enlarged by a magnetic base. As a result, there's nothing stopping people from scanning, distributing, and printing these codes. Of course, figurines are cooler than little slips of paper with lots of black squares, but simply getting their extra content will likely be achievable without shelling out extra cash.
UPDATE: Just days after the announcement of Angry Birds Star Wars 2, developer Rovio has announced a boxed PC and console release for the game's galactic predecessor.
