The teaming up of two incredibly popular multi-media franchises has arrived in the App Store today, with the release of Angry Birds Star Wars. The game represents a collaboration between Rovio and Lucasfilm, and follows the adventures of a plucky band of Rebel birds in their fight against the evil Imperial Pigs. Fans get to use the Force, wield a Lightsaber, and blast away Pigtroopers as they travel the galaxy, from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star, where they’ll come face to face with Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs!
The game boasts more than 80 levels, with all-new gameplay mechanics, the ability to level up birds, free updates, and lots of secrets and goodies to find. You can also train as a Jedi Master via the in-app purchase, “Path of the Jedi.”“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.”
“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.”
