Angry Birds Star Wars II Coming, Has Darth Maul Pig




Angry Birds Star Wars II is coming, and will be inspired by the three Star Wars movie prequels, Rovio Entertainment announced this morning. The game will be available on September 19th for mobile devices worldwide.


New to the game will be a “Join the Pork Side” feature that lets you play as the antagonistic pigs in the game. The game will feature characters based on Darth Maul, Mace Windu, young Anakin Skywalker and more.


The game will also be compatible with Hasbro’s Telepods technology, which will allow one to unlock in-game features by placing actual collectible figurines that you can purchase in front of your mobile device’s camera.
