Konami yesterday announced it will be releasing Star Wars: Force Collection on iOS and Android on September 4.

It’s going to be the first Star Wars digital card battle game, Konami said. Star Wars: Force Collection will challenge players to collect over over 230 character cards and discover special vehicle blueprints to create the ultimate Battle Formation comprised of the famous aircrafts like X-Wings, AT-ATs and Tie Fighters.

Once your deck is fully built, you’ll be set to challenge rivals in strategic battles, solve quests, participate in massive in-game events, level up among the Jedi or Sith Orders and more. Go past the fold for the full reveal…

The officially-licensed game takes place in the fabled Star Wars universe so expect not only the familiar villains from all six episodes of Star Wars movies, but also the official music and video.

According to a media release, there will be more than 230 heroes, villains and vehicles to choose from.

As players progress, their actions will determine whether they join and fight on the light or dark side of the Force during global player events.
