Angry Birds Star Wars 2 Is Coming

by on July 15, 2013

Just when you thought it was safe to go near a mobile device, comes the unsurprising news that Angry Birds Star Wars is getting a sequel, and it’s coming in September.

The obviously-named Angry Birds Star Wars 2 will be focusing on the prequel movies of the saga; so expect Anakin Skywalker to feature – Although Rovio have categorically not commenting on whether Jar Jar Binks will feature in the game, it seems like an inevitability at this point.

The new game will feature a roster of 30 playable characters, but the big deal is that in true Skylanders style, you’ll be able to buy all 30 of those characters in plastic form (through Hasbro’s TELEPODS line of toys); and use these physical figures in the game itself – Allow this video to demonstrate:

Parents: Your wallets are not safe. Rovio have also announced that the game will be accompanied by all the plushes, books, toys and clothes that you can expect from the Angry Birds mass marketing machine.

Angry Birds Star Wars 2 will be released on September 19th for all mobile devices (presumably iOS and Android-based).
