Rovio Launches Angry Birds Star Wars II
Last week we reported that Rovio was to launch a new game today. The picture we showed you had a Darth Vader shadow and that was there for a very good reason. The new game they announced today was Angry Birds Star Wars II.
The game will feature new levels, enemies, and birds with different powers. The most interesting new feature is the “Telepods” toy by Hasbro that you can use with the game. Telepods are little Angry Birds figures on a stand. Put the bird on the stand, tap it on the screen, and it will put that bird in the game. The Telepods page says it the best:
“TELEPODS lets you teleport your figures into the new ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS II app!”
There are over 30 teleport-able figures to collect. You can buy one for yourself when the app comes out. They will be available where toys are sold. As for the app, it will be coming to the App Store as well as the Google Play Store on September 19. Just like all of the other Angry Birds games, the iPhone version should be $0.99 and the HD iPad version should be $1.99. The Telepods price is currently unknown.
