The collaboration has been confirmed and a release date has been set! Angry Birds. Star Wars. $$$$$! November 8th!
George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars, and Rovio, the creators of Angry Birds, have a lot in common. For instance, both really love money. That's why the two have decided to team up and release Angry Birds: Star Wars, a veritable dream team of sci-fi universe and iPhone game that absolutely no one was clamoring for, but everyone will buy.
"I think fans are really going to like the advancements we made for this sequel," said Bill Rovio, the president of Rovio. "For instance, now, when you fire birds at pigs from slingshots, the birds will be dressed like Star Wars characters." Amazing.
"The pigs will also be dressed as Star Wars characters," added Rovio, very satisfied with himself.
The game is due out on November 8th for iOS, Android, and computers, meaning everyone will have a chance to give Rovio and Lucas their money. "We really felt that was important," Rovio told us.
Whatever the motivation, fans of Angry Birds and Star Wars alike will probably enjoy the game. That is, unless the meddling of George Lucas becomes too much to bear.
"This is my game," said Lucas, who plans to visit the homes and workplaces of gamers and, if he doesn't like the way they played through certain levels, snatch their phones and go back and replay the levels for them. "I want to make sure each playthrough stays true to my artistic vision."
In our Bleeding Cool moment of the day, The Outhouse would like to point out that we predicted this game last week. Here's a youtube trailer for the Angry Birds: Star Wars.
The Outhouse is sponsored this week by Late Nite Draw.
