Angry Birds Star Wars II Coming This September


If you like Angry Birds, Star Wars, or Angry Birds Star Wars, there is good news for you. The Angry Birds Star Wars II is launching on September 19 across app stores worldwide. If you have always wanted to give in to the dark side, you can now. Only, its called the Pork side in the game.

The new game will tackle the prequels, and introduce a new roster of Angry Birds Star Wars characters. You’ll get to play with over 30 of them, as a matter of fact!

There will also be a line of over 30 telepods figures from Hasbro, says Rovio. 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.
