Star Wars Offers 'A New Hope' For Angry Birds Fans

Angry Birds Star Wars Edition release on Nov. 8
"Incoming! Bird in a slingshot!"

If you are an Angry Birds fan, then you are in for a treat. On Nov. 8, 2012, Angry Birds Star Wars will be released and the billion fans will have a new installment of the game combining two successful franchises.

Yes, there were over a billion downloads of the original Angry Birds, and the Star Wars version of Angry Birds will only bring more fans into the mix. And this new game is sure to not disappoint fans of either genre.

In fact, Angry Birds Star Wars has cool fan gear for fan boys.

Angry Birds Star Wars allows players to be Luke, Leia, Han Solo, Yoda, and Chewbacca in a fight against the Dark side as depicted in Star Wars: A New Hope. Rumor is that players can also be Darth Vader and play as the dark side against the rebellion.

This is Rovio Entertainment's first Angry Birds title that incorporates other content. This game will open many other forms of merchandise with Angry Birds Star Wars themes. Toys R Us will sell Halloween costumes, plush dolls, posters and other toys related to this game.

Colum Slevin, the Vice President of Studio Operations at Lucasfilm Ltd., said: "Both Star Wars and Angry Birds share the instant and irresistible appeal of hands-on fun...People seem to instinctively know what to do when handed a light saber or a bird in a slingshot, so this is a natural combination."

Peter Vesterbacka, the CMO of Rovio Entertainment shared, "The 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 a galaxy far, far away...As a big Star Wars fan myself, I'm really excited about this new universe. The Force is definitely strong with this one."

I anticipate this new Angry Birds game will be a blast!
