Angry Birds won't, can't be stopped until the entire universe is under their control. Fitting then that they've now announced Angry Bird Star Wars II, in which all those outstanding Star Wars characters are transformed into birds for you to throw at Darth Vader pig. Also, the franchise is introducing Telepods, a Skylander-style feature that transports toys/figurines into the game. This, along with more levels, stories, and more, to be released September 19 on mobile devices.
Angry Birds Star Wars II will focus on the prequel stories of the Star Wars universe, introducing characters like Anakin, Mace Windu, General Grievous, Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks. Yet for some odd reason the announcement trailer focuses in Chewbacca and Darth Vader. Ah well, it's marketing for an Angry Birds game. It doesn't have to be smart or even accurate. Just give them the bag of money already.
Landing in "app stores worldwide" on September 19, Angry Birds Star Wars II will introduce more than 30 characters. Each of which is likely to have their very own figure available for purchase in stores worldwide. To get an early look at Angry Birds Star Wars II and its new Telepod technology check out the trailer below.
