But new version of title won't be coming out anytime soon

Flappy Bird returning to the App Store

Mobile sensation Flappy Bird is to return to the App Store, says the game’s creator.

When asked by a fan on Twitter whether the hit title would be available for download again one day, Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen said "Yes. But not soon".

He later clarified that the new Flappy Bird would not be the same as the original, but "a better one".

The hugely popular mobile title was pulled from the App Store and Google Play last month despite topping the App Store downloads chart following intense scrutiny of the title.

Nguyen claimed he did not pull the game due to legal reasons.

"I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore," he tweeted.

He added: "It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore. I also don’t sell ‘Flappy Bird’, please don’t ask. And I still make games."
