We saw the teaser a few days back, and well, it looks like we now have confirmation and a release date. Simply put, Angry Birds Star Wars is coming. And coming fairly soon. The game will be available beginning on November 8th. Similar to previous Angry Birds games, the Star Wars edition will be available for iOS and Android devices as well as computers. Otherwise, the teaser video (as seen below) is short and sweet and does not reveal all that much in terms of what we can expect. In speaking with USA Today, Paul Southern who is the vice president of licensing and consumer products marketing for Lucasfilm Ltd stated that these “are not Angry Birds dressed up as Star Wars characters” and instead they are characters with personalities that are “kind of similar.” Otherwise, some of the other teasing noted that some of the characters will be Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Regardless, this sounds like another version of Angry Birds that will be a top seller. Now we just have to see whether or not the Star Wars version can top the Bad Piggies game in terms of hours to the number one position in the iOS App Store.
