Rovio has already partnered with Lucasfilm Ltd. to develop the new Angry Birds Star Wars. The game will have the Angry Birds cast dressed up as Star Wars characters with game set against storylines and settings of the iconic space opera. It is almost clear that the Angry Birds Star Wars game idea stemmed from Angry Birds Space, which Rovio developed in collaboration with NASA. “Star Wars” is an American science fiction film series created by George Lucas.
Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio said “This is the best Angry Birds game we’ve ever done. It’s the best part of Angry Birds with all new cutting-edge gameplay set in in a galaxy far, far away. As a big ‘Star Wars’ fan myself, I’m really excited about this new universe. The Force is definitely strong with this one.”
Colum Slevin, Vice President & Head of Studio Operations for Lucasfilm Ltd. said, “People seem to instinctively know what to do when handed a lightsaber or a bird in a slingshot, so this is a natural combination.”
Their recently launched game Bad Piggies became very popular within a very short period of time. Angry Birds Star Wars is the fifth game of Angry Bird series preceded by “Angry Birds Space,” “Angry Birds Seasons,” “Angry Bird Rio” and “Angry Birds”. Rovio also published a 21 seconds short video with the announcement of the new game. Lets have a look at the video.
