This morning, Rovio launched a massive gameplay trailer for the upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars II game. Inside the trailer, we get a great look at how each of the characters will perform, as well as some interesting additions such as the NFC-powered Telepods. If you have been part of the Skylanders craze that is currently sweeping this nation’s youth, then parents, you will know exactly what you are in for.
The game is set to be launched September 19 on all platforms and markets.
Rovio is going to keep on milking this Star Wars cash cow, so we are about to go through another wave of intense teaser trailers and hyping for the upcoming release of Angry Birds Star Wars II. In the latest round of videos, Rovio invites us to “join the pork side,” with a special voice appearance from the one and only Ian McDiarmid. If the name doesn’t sound familiar, he’s the actor that played the OG emperor in the original trilogy. (more…)
This morning, Rovio announced the availability of their new cloud-based save system, Rovio Account, for Android and iOS.

This also allows for multiple accounts on the same device, that way you don’t have to worry about overwriting anyone else’s data. (more…)
Rovio teased it at the end of last week, but it’s now official – Angry Birds Star Wars 2 will launch September 19. It’ll include new characters, the opportunity to choose the “Pork Side,” and a way to teleport figurine characters into the game to customize your lineup. So yeah, it’s another Angry Birds, if you are still into that sort of thing. (more…)

Have the Amazon Appstore installed on your Android device? Well, if not and you want some awesome Angry Birds Star Wars action for free, you best get on that.

When Rovio isn’t busy updating Angry Birds Star Wars with new bird characters or spending time making Bad Piggies fun to play, they are completely swept up in hypebeasting a new game. The newest of such is being labeled (by Rovio, mind you) “the evolution of Angry Birds.” It’s called Angry Birds Go! and from what little we have seen so far, we have our money on some type of Mario Kart-like racing game.
