Rovio Confirms September 19th Release of ‘Angry Birds Star Wars II,’ Will Include Tie-In With Hasbro

Rovio and Lucasfilm have confirmed that a sequel to the popular Angry Birds Star Wars game will be launched around the world on September 19. The game will follow the story of the three prequel Star Wars movies.

TechCrunch:

Rovio’s Angry Birds Star Wars takes the same physics-based gameplay and puts it in a gravity-free environment, giving users new tricks and tools to destroy the piggies’ habitat and move on to other levels of destruction. With the sequel, Rovio will be launching brand new Angry Birds characters while slipping in a few new surprises.

Rovio will be supplying new ways for players to interact with the game, and will be combining its merchandising business with its mobile gaming business, with help from toy company Hasbro.

Hasbro will offer 30 different “telepods” available at the time of the launch of Angry Birds Star Wars II. Telepods, which are collectible figures of various characters, will allow users to scan the character into the game via their phone or tablet cameras.

Also notable in the new game is the ability to cross over to the “Pork Side,” by allowing players to play as the “bad guy” pigs. This concept pulls, (pulled pork?), from Rovio’s Bad Piggies game, which sees the player fighting on the side of all that is pork.

To be filed under “no big surprise,” Rovio will also be launching a new line of merchandise alongside the game, with the usual toys, apparel, accessories, books and such.

Rovio noted that the original Angry Birds Star Wars game has been downloaded over 100 million times since its launch in the App Store.
