First gameplay video of Angry Birds Star Wars

By , Oct 29, 2012

A new Star Wars-themed Angry Birds game, part of a broad merchandizing partnership with toy maker Hasbro, is due November 8. It’s currently marketed under an SEO-optimized Angry Birds Star Wars moniker and we previously showed you the original teaser and a trailer featuring Princess Leia. Today, Finnish developer Rovio is out with another amusing video depicting romance in the making between Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.

It also lets us in on gameplay action and mechanics. Looks like birds-slinging remains the focus of the game. This upcoming puzzler will introduce a host of crazy and officially licensed Star Wars-themed characters, each with its own personality and skills. I love how one of the birds is waving Lightsabers to penetrate the thick walls…

Not sure about you, but the game looks fun, if this trailer is anything to go by.

I’m a huge fan of Star Wars so my judgement is perhaps slanted a bit.

What do you think?

Is Angry Birds Star Wars a welcome addition to the lineup or should Rovio stop milking the franchise for all its worth?

    Maybe Rocio is exaggerating with the Angry Birds franchise, but I’m also a Star Wars fan, so maybe I’ll take a look. Hopefully there will be no Jar-Jar binks bird :-/

    “Finnish developer Rovio is out with another amusing video depicting romance in the making between Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia.” —This right here doesn’t make any sense. Any star wars fan knows that they are brother and sister. Incest much?

      Angry Birds Incest. A game the whole family can play.

    Looks dumb. I hate angry birds.

    • Thorasgard

      Why are you so filled with hate and anger?

    My kids will hound me until I buy it. For the phone and iPad. It will sell. Have you seen all the angry birds Halloween costumes ?

    If Rovio released a title called Angry Birds Classic, they would sell millions.
