Rovio teases ‘Escape from Hoth’ update for Angry Birds Star Wars on Twitter

After the huge success of the lightsaber-wielding Angry Birds Star Wars, Rovio has teased the gaming faithful with an image on the official Angry Birds Twitter account. The image shows an artist’s rendering of the Millennium Falcon whizzing down a dark tunnel, which may point towards the update’s focus on the Escape from Hoth scenario featured in the second movie of the original Star Wars trilogy – The Empire Strikes Back.

The image was tweeted with the accompanying hashtags #ComingSoon and #EscapeFromHoth.  Launched last November on multiple-platforms, Angry Birds Star Wars has been a huge success for Rovio and topped the iTunes charts in the US just two and a half hours of its launch.
