Angry Birds Star Wars..It’s here! “May the Force be with you.”
Fire up your Lightsaber..Angry Birds Star Wars looks like the best of the franchise yet. It took less than three hours to soar to the top of the US iOS App Store. The new game features a whole bunch of new bird characters each wielding a unique weapon. The Han Solo bird for example is armed with a three-shot space gun. The game also features iconic Star Wars locations, 80 immersive levels, “hours and hours” of gameplay, fresh mechanics, and new level-up capabilities for birds.
“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!
With more than 80 levels in iconic locations like Tatooine and the Pig Star, the game features hours and hours of engaging gameplay, all new gameplay mechanics, the ability to level up birds, free updates, plus lots of secrets and hidden goodies. Fans can also train in the “Path of the Jedi” in-app purchase to become a Jedi Master.
