In case you haven’t heard of Flappy Bird, it’s a game that has recently taken the App Store and Google Play by storm — and is currently still first in the top charts.

And now, the game is coming to Windows Phone, likely landing some time this month (hat/tip WMPowerUser).

Flappy Bird is a game built by Vietnamese indie developer Dong Nguyen.
