Angry Birds Star Wars, the new game from Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm, is now available on iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone, and Windows 8. Along with the game, the company has also released a new trailer for the game and merchandise in select retailers worldwide.
“It’s a banner day for us,” said Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio Entertainment. “This is our best Angry Birds game yet, and we’re excited for our fans to finally meet Luke, Leia, and the rest of the gang! But it’s more than just a game launch: we think fans are going to just love the new animated trailer and the Angry Birds Star Wars products, sure to be a big hit this holiday season.”
The game follows a plucky group of Rebel Birds in their fight against the evil Imperial Pigs. Fans will use the Force, wield a lightsaber, and blast away Pigtroopers on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star -- where they’ll face off against the terrifying Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs.
“We can’t wait for fans around the world to experience the fun of launching the Angry Birds characters into the Star Wars universe,” said Colum Slevin, Vice President, Head of Studio Operations for Lucasfilm Ltd. “This is the kind of creative partnership that has helped Star Wars remain vibrant and beloved for over 35 years.”
Rovio claims that with more than 80 levels in locations such as Tatooine and the Pig Star, the game features hours of gameplay, all new gameplay mechanics, the ability to level up birds, free updates, plus lots of secrets and hidden features. Fans can also train in the 'Path of the Jedi' in-app purchase to become a Jedi Master.
Concurrently with the game launch, Rovio and Lucasfilm have also introduced tie-in merchandise and a new cinematic trailer, which retells the classic Star Wars cantina scene with Angry Birds Star Wars characters in the starring roles. Angry Birds Star Wars merchandise, ranging from Hasbro toys to apparel to plush toys, is available now from select retailers.
Rovio Entertainment released a new and extended gameplay trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars on iOS, Android, Windows 8, PC, and Mac yesterday. In this trailer, we can see a variety of Angry Birds in their new Star Wars avatar flaunting their skills with lightsabers. The Bad Piggies, as expected, are from the Dark Side, and they too wield lightsabers.
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.
