Today we’re extremely excited to announce the arrival of Angry Birds Star Wars II, launching on September 19 across app stores worldwide!
The new game will tackle the prequels, introducing a wide roster of never-before-seen Angry Birds Star Wars characters. The best part? You’ll get to play with over 30 of them!
At this point we will not comment on rumors or speculation that Jar Jar Binks will be in the game.
To compliment this wide lineup of characters, there will also be a line of over 30 collectable TELEPODS figures from Hasbro. Placing these figures onto your phone or tablet camera will scan your character of choice directly into the game, allowing you to select new characters on the fly.
The video below should give you a clearer idea about how TELEPODS work in Angry Birds Star Wars II, check it out:
Another first for the series is that you can choose your side! Players can choose to “Join the Pork Side”, and rumor has it that the emperor is recruiting (more on this soon!!)
There will, of course, be new toys, plush, books, apparel and more launching with the game on September 19. TELEPODS will be hitting stores in September, too, so keep an eye out and May The Birds Be With You!
Stay tuned for more news on Angry Birds Star Wars II over the coming weeks; we have some really cool reveals planned! Also, look out for Return of the Jedi in the original Angry Birds Star Wars!
