In a galaxy far, far away Activision Publishing in conjunction with Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm are pleased to announce that Angry Birds Star Wars is kicking into hyper drive and be making it’s way onto consoles on the 29th of October complete with new levels, features and platform-unique design elements. It’ll be landing on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo 3DS.
Angry Birds Star Wars for consoles contains many of the engaging mechanics of previous Angry Birds titles, but Angry Birds Star Wars evolves the core game design and hilarious tone of previous entries in the series with new characters, challenges and environments that pay homage to the iconic hallmarks of the Star Wars universe. I mean, you’ve played the mobile version right? It’s hilarious.
The console title adds 20 never-before-seen exclusive levels as well as the existing 200 from the original Angry Birds Star Wars mobile game and, wait for it, for the first time ever, Angry Birds Star Wars will contain unique multiplayer modes. You can play alongside friends and family in local two-player co-op mode to achieve a combined high score or, if co-operation isn’t your thing, against them in competitive mode which allows up to four players to join in.
In addition, the game delivers achievements and trophies, leaderboards, high-definition graphics (on HD-compatible systems) as well as unlockable bonus levels, items and content.
