As per an announcement from Rovio, “Angry Birds Star Wars will be out on November 8. But don't worry, you'll be slinging birds and waving Lightsabers around in no time!”
Rovio has also announced that till the game is officially released on November 8 to iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, and Windows 8, it will dish out animations, comics, and fan art on its official Tumblr page to set the mood. The official gameplay trailer will be released on November 5, 2012.
After teasing it on the official Tumblr page of Angry Birds, Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm Ltd recently announced a new entertainment franchise collaboration titled Angry Birds Star Wars.
The game aims to combine all the fun of the classic Angry Birds and Angry Birds Space with the characters, stories, and settings of the epic space fantasy Star Wars.
From the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Death Star, the game and merchandise will feature the Angry Birds characters starring as the iconic heroes of the Star Wars saga.
“This is the best Angry Birds game we’ve ever done. It’s the best parts of Angry Birds with all new cutting-edge gameplay set in a galaxy far, far away,” said Peter Vesterbacka, the Mighty Eagle and CMO of Rovio. “As a big Star Wars fan myself, I’m really excited about this new universe. The Force is definitely strong with this one.”
“Both Star Wars and Angry Birds share the instant and irresistible appeal of hands-on fun,” said Colum Slevin, Vice President, Head of Studio Operations for Lucasfilm Ltd. “People seem to instinctively know what to do when handed a lightsaber or a bird in a slingshot, so this is a natural combination.”
The earlier announcement ends by stating that fans of the franchise can expect additional new videos, characters, and much more content to be revealed ahead of the game being launched.
