Rovio dropped a few Angry Birds Star Wars II teasers late last week and those came along with the promise of some character introductions. The game is set for release on September 19th and Rovio has said it will include bird and pig versions of over 30 characters from the Star Wars universe. Rovio also promised that character introductions would begin today.
With that in mind, it looks like the Rovio YouTube account has four new videos. These are all on the short side, just 30 seconds each and are offering an introduction for Droideka, TIE Fighter Pilot, Zam Wesell and Emperor Palpatine. The first of the videos, the introduction for Droideka is sitting below.
We have also recently learned that Rovio would be releasing Angry Birds Star Wars II into the Google Play Store as well as the Amazon Appstore. The game will be priced at $0.99 and there will also be a second free version available for those who don’t mind some in-game advertisements. That said, the second of the introductions was for TIE Fighter Pilot and that can be seen just below.
This latest version of Angry Birds Star Wars is also brining a unique take in that you will be able to play as the other side. Rovio has said the “Join The Pork Side” bit is all about how you will be able to play as the piggies — which is a first for any of the games in the Angry Birds series. And next up is the introduction for Zam Wesell.
Anyway, with 30 total character introductions coming and only four released it looks like we have plenty more to watch for in the coming weeks. And aside from being able to play as one of the piggies, the other connection with this release comes with the TELEPODS tie-in. This will bring a real-world (toy) aspect to the game. The final introduction for this round is for Emperor Palpatine and that is sitting below.
