The casual-gaming juggernaut that is Angry Birds is set to combine with the undying power of Star Wars.  Rovio has announced Angry Birds Star Wars will arrive on iOS, Android, and Windows 8 PCs on November 8th.  The game will use the same gravitational physics as Angry Birds Space, but the birds will now be wearing the look of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and the other rebel forces, while the pigs will be represented by Darth Vader, storm troopers, and the Empire.  There will also be other tweaks like changes to the music and settings.  According to USA Today, “With Angry Birds Star Wars, merchandise sales will likely kick into hyperdrive. Clothing, toys and action figures will appear in stores about a week before the game becomes available.”

This will be the second Angry Birds-film crossover.  The popular video game tied in with last year’s Rio, which made sense because both properties feature birds.  Now, Angry Birds appears free to crossover with whatever property it wishes.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Angry Birds Battleship Potemkin.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars.

    Wow. So they’re selling a sell-out version of a sold-out brand of the most sold-out mobile gaming franchise on the planet? Please keep this as far away from me as possible.

    • Pocketses

      You keep using that word…

      I do not think it means even a fraction of what you think it means…

      Not defending this game, but please, tell me how the angry birds franchise “sold out” in any way?

      Get over yourself.

      Um. Do you not see the ungodly amount merchandise, cartoons, in-app purchases, Angry Birds “this” and Angry Birds “that” around you? They’ve practically taken over the mobile gaming world with they’re pathetic excuse for a marketable franchise based off an incredibly simplistic and tired game formula. All they had to do was release a sequel or two over the course of the past five years. They didn’t need to add a $1.00 eagle that BEATS THE F–KING LEVELS FOR YOU. They didn’t need to make an incredibly stupid cartoon out of empty and poorly animated characters. They didn’t need to make a movie tie-in, or a Green Day tie-in, or any of this other nonsense. The world doesn’t need another Guitar Hero or Star Wars. Now they’ve joined forces to build the biggest sell-out creation of all time. I can’t roll my eyes back far enough. Oh, and go f-ck yourself Pocketses. Telling me to get over myself. You’re just as big a tool if you don’t see what’s going on here.

        Except that none of what you’ve listed is actually selling out. This isn’t some indie underground hit that took off after years of struggling to get off the ground, and then sold it’s self out like a whore to all comers. This thing is doing exactly what it was made to do. It’s not a sell-out in any way, shape or form. It’s a marketing gold mine, and they’re doing exactly what they want it to.

        Personally, I hate the term Sell-out in a manner that I cannot explain, because it only enrages me. The term is flat-out retarded. Bands don’t sell out when they make a different style of music, director’s don’t sell out when they make it big and make big-budget films. And video games sure as shit don’t even have to CAPABILITY to sell out…

        It’s a phantom, ignorant hipster term that needs to be abolished out of a desperate need to get rid of the sheer stupidity spewing out from this world.

        Oh, and thank god I went back and read your ignorant rant through one more time. Didn’t even see you tell me to go fuck myself. That’s fine, I’ll go and do that. “If you don’t really see what’s going on!”

        Like there’s some horrible child-torture going on…as if this were some propaganda machine created by the government to brainwash young children to respect the establishment more than their parents.

        What “is really going on” is that a company (something that, by pure definition, is out to make money) is making money off of their own intellectual property, and someone on the internet is so horribly offended by it happening that he has to spew vitriol about it and concoct some ridiculous world in which a video game and movie property has the capability to “sell-out”

        So yeah…get over yourself.
