Rovio, the creators of Angry birds has announced Angry Birds Star Wars II game, a sequel to the first Angry Birds Star Wars that was released in November last year. The new Angry Birds Star Wars game will follow the story of the three prequel Star Wars movies and would also bring new Angry Birds Star Wars characters including versions of young Anakin, Mace Windu, Darth Maul and more. There are 30 playable characters, most of which remains as a secret. This would also bring the ability to choose your side so that you can play as one of the villainous pigs.
This brings a new feature called TELEPODS that would let the players unlock new characters by placing one of the collectible TELEPODS physical characters from the Hasbro line on the phone or tablet camera and scanning it into the game. Players can choose which character they want to use in the app by “teleporting” their physical character into the game.
Over thirty such figures will be available at launch in September. Hasbro TELEPODS would arrive in retail by September for the game launch and would be showcased at the San Diego Comic-con in July.
Rovio says that app would be available to download at the app stores worldwide. Hope the app would be available on Android, iOS and Windows Phone 8 devices at the launch.
