This is one Angry Birds spinoff I can get behind as Rovio announces plans to launch an tie-in with Star Wars, a movie icon that needs no introduction. Launching worldwide on November 8th, the game “will combine all the fun of the classic Angry Birds and Angry Birds Space with the characters, stories and settings of the epic space fantasy, Star Wars.”
“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.
In addition to the game itself, Angry Bird Star Wars fans will see merchandising ranging from Halloween costumes, apparel, action figures, and collectible plush toys available at retailers beginning October 28th.
Rovio’s press release indicates more videos, characters and other exciting content will be revealed in the coming weeks.
