EA really do like to surprise people.

On the Simpsons Tapped Out Facebook page just today, they announced a launch of the game on Android and included a link to the Google Play store – for the US at least. However, there is no Origin login for the time being – your only friend is the Other Springfield.

Expect it to arrive over the next few days and weeks in other markets.

Update: Just added to the official Facebook page (at http://www.facebook.com/TheSimpsonsTappedOut) is this:

Hey everyone, if you don’t see The Simpsons: Tapped Out on Google Play in your country yet, we will be rolling it out to you very soon!
