Just when fans thought Angry Birds couldn’t get any more awesome, they did. Angry Birds and Star Wars are teaming up for an all-out battle of greatness.
USA Today reports that Angry Birds Star Wars is set for release on November 8 for Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8. The characters from the popular launching game will take on the faces and personalities of those in the Star Wars Saga.
Paul Southern, VP of consumer products marketing for Lucasfilm Ltd. Informs, “They are not Angry Birds dressed up as Star Wars characters. They are characters in their own right."
"They've got personalities which are kind of similar,” he explains. According to the report, traditional red birds will resemble that of Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope; Princess Leia, Hon Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Chebacca will also be seen in the games new edition.
"You will see a pig-esque Vader and pig-esque stormtroopers," Southern informs.
MTV provided a list of “must see levels” which should be seen in a Angry Birds-Star Wars team up which include, “The Death Star,” “Hoth,” “Dagobath,” “Endor” as well as “Space Battles.”
