“Angry Birds Star Wars” sees the angry avian flock take on the role of iconic Star Wars characters like Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, while the herd of nasty pigs step into the Empire’s shoes. Now, Rovio has released the first trailer showing off gameplay from the upcoming mobile crossover!
The trailer kicks off with the Luke Skywalker (played by the red bird) showing off his lightsaber skills to Leia (played by the pink bird) who is less than entertained. From there it’s right into the game as we get our first look at the crossover characters in action!
Woah! Looks like red bird is finally getting a power thanks to Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber! The pink bird also had and interesting ability going on, as it appears she used some sort of eyeball tractor beam to pull that AT-AT’s leg out from under it.
Interestingly, the red and pink birds introduced the trailer and they are also the only ones who got any gameplay time. Maybe the next trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars will feature two other characters? We’ll just have to wait and see, but I’m feeling fairly confident that we can expect it.
“Angry Birds Star Wars” enters our galaxy on November 8th
