Rovio announces Angry Birds Star Wars II
Rovio has made a name for itself in the mobile gaming industry with the release of Angry Birds some years back, and they have not looked back since. Angry Birds has more or less appeared on all of the popular mobile gaming platforms, be they tablets or smartphones, and have reduced the efficiency of workers at the office as they tend to sneak in a few minutes of Angry Birds from time to time while the boss is not looking. In fact, Angry Birds has also come up with its different merchandise to earn even more money, while working with the Star Wars before, where that game proved to be quite the hit, so much so that it warranted a sequel to this franchise via an expansion known as Angry Birds Star Wars II, which will launch later this September 19th in app stores worldwide.
Angry Birds Star Wars II will offer something new and old at the same time, where it will follow the story of the three prequel Star Wars movies, with the inclusion of never-before-seen Angry Birds Star Wars characters. Yes sir, for the first time, you are able to, in Rovio parlance, choose to “Join the Pork Side” and don the role as one of the villainous porkers.
We do know that some of the character additions will include versions of young Anakin, Mace Windu and Darth Maul, and there is one more thing which will definitely draw the attention of most folks – Hasbro’s TELEPODS technology, where it delivers an additional interactive layer of gameplay and content to Angry Birds Star Wars II. New characters and super powers can be unlocked for players as you place one of the collectible TELEPODS physical characters from the Hasbro range on the phone or tablet camera, followed by a scanning process to literally see that character enter the game. More than thirty figures will be available at launch in September. This is getting ridiculous, don’t you think so? Still, I think it looks set to be a winner (with parents becoming all the poorer for it).
