A forthcoming update of Angry Birds could feature characters from The Simpsons, reports suggest.

Predictions that Homer, Bart et all will star in a future episode of Rovio’s casual gaming phenom stem from a ‘coming soon’ screen in the latest Angry Birds Space edition.

The teaser shows what appears to be a pink-glazed doughnut with sprinkles – the type of sugary carb-y treat favoured by Homer in the show – swaddled partly in wrapping paper to disguise it.

And the plot thickens. As the keen-eyed chaps at TechCrunch point out, games-maker Rovio has previously partnered with Fox, which owns The Simpsons, for an Angry Birds spinoff in collaboration with the Rio animated movie. That makes a future hook-up even more likely.

Seemingly sealing the deal is that, as the clip above testifies, Angry Birds homages have featured prominently on more than one occasion on The Simpsons, suggesting the two companies' working relationship is more than convivial.
