Rovio has released six different Angry Birds games–most recently Bad Piggies–but none of them have excited me as much as the Star Wars one, ‘cuz I’m geeky. The new game Angry Birds Star Wars (ABSW)is coming out on November 8, 2012. We’ve heard the game will have players take Star Wars characters, such as Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, place them in a catapult, and shoot them toward structures built by the evil Empire. Now we can see it for ourselves in this gameplay trailer, below.
Okay, there’s not much gameplay in this brief trailer. But what little there is shows us what an awesome combination Angry Birds and Star Wars will be.
You know how in previous AB games, you pull back the catapult and send your bird flying through the air until it strikes? In ABSW, there’s more to gameplay than that: The Luke Skywalker bird also deploys a lightsaber (!) and Leia uses a blaster to do some damage to the Imperial piggies.
It looks like great fun. I can’t wait to destroy the Empire. With birds.
Check it out.
