Rovio Releases First GamePlay Video for ‘Angry Birds: Star Wars’

Rovio has been teasing us for several weeks now about their newest addition to the Angry Birds franchise, posting teaser video and teaser video. Today they finally showed us a tiny bit of what the game will look like:

As you can see Rovio has created at least 2 new bird characters based on Luke and Leia Skywalker. Clearly Rovio has tied this game into the Star Wars mythos; one character shoots some kind of blaster while the other has a lightsaber. And if you look closely you’ll see that the pigs have been dressed up as Imperial troopers and Tusken raiders in levels reminiscent of Hoth and Tatooine.
