“We can already sense a great disturbance in The Force”, Rovio writes. “And app stores worldwide”.

Gamers can also discover two unlockable levels and, as a bonus, enjoy the pink bird which stars as Princess Leia who, according to the game, has “an ATTRACTIVE new power”.

More from Rovio:

It is a dark time for the Rebellion. Evading the dreaded Imperial Starfleet, a group of freedom fighters has established a new secret base on the remote ice world of Hoth.

Unfortunately the evil Lord Vader discovers their hideout, and the desperate Rebel birds must escape the AT-ATs and Pigtroopers hot on their trail.

But the Rebels have an ace up their sleeve with the debut of PRINCESS LEIA and her attractive new power!

A pair of Hoth screenies for you.

And this is a Hoth teaser.
