After hyping it up for quite a bit of time, Rovio has finally released Angry Birds Star Wars II. This sequel to the Star Wars-infused spin-off looks to shake things up quite a bit. For starters, it’s based on the three prequels that were released after the original Star Wars Trilogy.
Another big change in this sequel is that you can now choose to play with the darkside — that is, you can play with the pigs! That gives you the ability to play as top villains such as Darth Maul, Darth Vader and more. In all, there are over 30 playable characters, the ability to bring those characters into your game by taking pictures of your telepod figurines, and more.
Angry Birds Star Wars was one of the most intriguing new directions explored by the franchise made by Rovio, and now it seems that the Finnish developer is back with Angry Birds Star Wars II.
The installment features new characters and a new storyline which will even let players choose their side, either go with the good birds or the bad piggies.
The game, like its predecessor, combines the bird-tossing action of the Angry Birds franchise with the powers, characters, and settings of Star Wars universe.
