Angry Birds: Star Wars
I don't know whether to be excited or sad for this reboot of the popular mobile game Angry Birds. Let's face it, when tackling such an inconic franchise like Star Wars, it's hit or miss. Here's what was said in the press release:
From the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Death Star – the game and merchandise will feature the Angry Birds characters starring as the iconic heroes of the beloved Saga.
“This is the best Angry Birds game we’ve ever done. It’s the best parts of Angry Birds with all new cutting-edge gameplay set in in a galaxy far, far away,” said Peter Vesterbacka, the Mighty Eagle and CMO of Rovio. “As a big Star Wars fan myself, I’m really excited about this new universe. The Force is definitely strong with this one.”
In addition to the game, this fall will also see the unveiling of a massive retail launch for Angry Birds Star Wars. Merchandise ranging from Halloween costumes and apparel to action figures and collectible plush toys will be available at select retailers, starting October 28.
The game will be available on pretty much all available plateforms: iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Mac, Windows 8 and Windows Phone. Look for it as of November 8th.
