Angry Birds Star Wars Heading To Consoles in October

Activision Publishing, in conjunction with Rovio and Lucasfilm, has announced that Angry Birds Star Wars, is expected to release on gaming console systems for the first time on 29th October, 2013.

Complete with new levels, features and platform-unique design elements, these new editions will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, Nintendo's Wii and Wii U systems and Nintendo 3DS hand-held system.

"Downloaded more than 100 million times since its release last year, Angry Birds Star Wars melds together two of the biggest names in pop-culture entertainment for an out of this galaxy gaming experience," remarked Jami Laes, Executive Vice President of Games at Rovio Entertainment. "Angry Birds and Star Wars are franchises with millions of fans around the world and we're excited to partner with Activision to bring the marriage of these beloved properties to gamers everywhere this holiday season."

Iterating on many of the engaging mechanics of Angry Birds and Angry Birds Space, 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. This title adds 20 never-before-seen exclusive levels – in addition to the existing 200 from the original Angry Birds Star Wars mobile game – and for the first time ever, multiplayer modes. Play alongside family members or friends in two-player co-op mode to achieve a combined high score or against them (up to four players) in competitive mode. 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.
