Last week's Angry Birds-related teaser video hints at an upcoming turn-based mobile role-playing game from series creator Rovio, Kotaku reports.

Angry Birds Epic will feature an in-depth item-crafting component and a story-driven campaign when it hits the iOS App Store, Google Play, and the Windows Phone 8 storefront this year. An early version of Angry Birds Epic will arrive in the Canadian and Australian App Stores later this week, giving Rovio the opportunity to test game balance and online functionality prior to its worldwide release.
