Forging weapons upstages fowl flinging in the new Angry Birds Epic RPG

If you're a fan of flinging Angry Birds across the screen or racing them in go-carts on your favorite mobile device, Rovio's next installment looks to offer a new challenge. Angry Birds Epic is said to be a turn-based RPG with all the battle and armor building players can handle. Kotaku reports that making weapons, potions and other provisions with funds acquired during conquests or via in-app purchases will be a key part in the storyline. Details are scarce for now, but an in-progress version is said to hit iTunes in Australia and Canada this week with a global launch across iOS, Android and Windows Phone sometime in 2014.
