Rovio has been teasing us for about a month now with yet another new Angry Birds title – Angry Birds Star Wars. The game is an almost inevitable mash-up between the smash hit mobile game and one of the most famous science fiction films of all time, and features (as you'd expect) light-saber wielding, force manipulating, laser-shooting birds. They are, of course, angrier than ever and they'll be battling more thieving pigs in more Star Wars-inspired environments than we care to count. Of course all the classic birds have been re-costumed and outfitted with appropriate accessories to remind us of Star Wars characters from Han and Chewie to Darth Vader, Luke, Leia, and even C-3PO, among others.
In Rovio's latest Angry Birds entry, you can expect to enjoy gameplay dynamics from both the game's land-locked and space-bound variants, with gravity, timing, and mastery of new weapons of course serving as keys to success.
Of course there's also a heavy focus on new Star Wars-related elements. In a live hangout just before launch, the Angry Birds team promised that Star Wars comes as close to canon as possible "within the Angry Birds universe."
If you've played through previous Angry Birds games, you pretty much know what you're getting with Angry Birds Star Wars – the gameplay style that has made the series incredibly popular, along with some fresh (classic?) Star Wars gameplay twists and storyline elements.
Whether you're a fan of Angry Birds, Star Wars, or (ideally) both, Star Wars is worth checking out. Just hit the widget of your choice below – the regular version is ad supported, but can be rid of said ads for a $0.99 in-app purchase, while the ad-free HD version will run you $2.99.
