In a surprising announcement, Konami has announced that they are bringing Star Wars: Force Collection – a licensed card battling game – to iOS and Android devices on September 4.
With a rich universe of over 200 characters and vehicles spanning all six Star Wars movies, and the promise of “global player events”, this free download looks like it could be very interesting indeed. Tomoyuki Tsuboi, President of Konami Digital Entertainment was on hand for a few words:
“Stating the obvious, Star Wars is an enormously successful franchise, and we saw great potential in the story to delight fans around the world with a deep game experience on mobile devices. Konami’s proven capabilities in mobile game development and publishing, particularly in the card battle genre, are the perfect fit for Star Wars, and we’re very pleased to bring this new experience to players around the globe.”
