    The folks at Rovio have given us a plethora of different versions of their Angry Birds games, including a couple of Star Wars variants. Just when we thought they couldn't take the series any further, they prove us wrong. In fact, this latest version isn't a bird-flinging game anymore. Instead those crazy aerial Aves are heading into JRPG territory.

    The next game in the series will be called Angry Birds: Epic and it is a turn-based RPG. It supposedly even has an extensive crafting system, including armor, potions, and weapons. Say what?

    It will be soft-launching in an early form in Australia and Canada this week. It will launch globally in a more finished version later this year.

    Birds are not mammals, they're aves or avians.

    I knew it didn't look right. Thanks for the biology lesson... I Googled the best classification for birds and updated my post. I actually like the way this word looks in the sentence anyway... it's more poetic ;)
