New Angry Birds Star Wars Trailer Reveals R2-D2 and C3-PO Characters

We’re still a week away from he release date for this game and today Rovio teased us with another game play video.

As you can see in the video, both droid characters from the movies have been adapted for the new game. R2 was given a taser like ability, and C-3PO blows up. Neither ability is really all that close to what the characters do in the movies, but I suppose that is forgivable. These droids don’t actually do much besides stand there and talk, so if Rovio wanted to bring the iconic characters into the new game it would involve reinventing the characters.
