Angry Birds Star Wars is kicking into hyperdrive on November 8, Rovio today revealed. According to USA Today, the game is coming to iOS, Android, and Windows 8 PCs. Along with the above video, Lucasfilm and Rovio released the below promotional image.
According to Lucasfilm licensing and consumer products marketing VP Paul Southern, the above characters aren’t just “Angry Birds dressed up as Star Wars characters,” but they do have “personalities which are kind of similar” to their counterparts. We can already imagine the names: Luke Skysquawker, Chewpecker… actually, that’s all we’ve got.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the game uses the physics of Angry Birds Space, but is set on recognizable locations from the Star Wars series. We may well learn more details after the Times Square reveal later today.
