Rovio Releases C-3PO, R2-D2 Trailer for Angry Birds Space

Posted by Alan at 6:09 AM on November 1, 2012

Rovio began talking about their latest Angry Birds game several weeks ago.  Since then they have slowly teased the game out, first with a video that provided little clue of what was in store, then with one that finally displayed some game play and featured Luke and Leia.  Today the Finnish game studio has pushed out their latest offering and this one shows off more game play, but features C-3PO and R2-D2 birds.

We are exactly one week from launch and we can probably expect a few more trailers to pop up during those coming days.  The game, to probably nobody’s surprise, will greatly resemble Angry Birds Space, but only have themed birds and planets.  The game will initially launch on iOS and Android, but a version will be coming shortly for Windows Phone and also Windows 8.

The Star Wars franchise is certainly in need of a boost these days, especially when a site like Tech Crunch labels it as “falling apart”.  Perhaps it’s recent purchase by Disney and the Angry Birds juggernaut will be able to save it.
