You may have thought it was only natural that one would play an Angry Birds Star Wars character on the light side of the Force. Rovio shows us in their latest title that it was not always that way though, as Angry Birds Star Wars II follows along with the events from the prequel movies and gives players the opportunity to feel the power of the Pork Side. That’s right, players can now select characters like Darth Maul, Darth Vader, General Grievous, or Emperor Palpatine as they battle to become a Sith Master. » Read the rest

Angry Birds Star Wars 2 is coming out soon, and Rovio is getting us excited by showing off the characters. Rovio has released a few teaser videos to show us four of the characters that will be in the game once its released on September 19. There are a total of 30 characters that are going to be in the game, and in addition, Star Wars 2 will be the first game of the franchise to allow users to play on the “Pork side.”
The game will be available in a free, ad supported version and a $0.99, ad-free version. You can check out the four videos after the break.
Rovio has finally debuted their game data-syncing solution on Android, called Rovio Accounts. The premise is simple; you create a Rovio account, and it backs up and restores your data across devices for some Rovio games. Unfortunately, there are some limitations in place. Rovio Accounts, as of right now, only supports syncing two games, including The Croods and the original Angry Birds game. Rovio’s other 7 mobile games don’t qualify yet. Hopefully we’ll see them in the future, but as of right now, you’re going to be limited just a bit.
Still, it’s a step in the right direction for cross-platform cloud syncing, which seems to be much more popular now than it used to be.
If you are an Angry Birds fan and a Star Wars fan than today is a great day for you. Actually September 19th will be an even better day. They teased it last week, and today they officially announced that Angry Birds Star Wars II on September 19. This new edition is going to cover the prequels and will introduce over 30 never-before-seen characters. Since the Angry Birds franchise is probably the most marketable mobile game ever, they also announced a line of over 30 collectable TELEPODS figures from Hasbro. If you place any of these figures on your phone or tablet camera, they will be scanned into the game. We have seen something similar from nabi utilizing NFC. Hit the break for a video showing you how it works.
Well would you look at that? Rovio went ahead and started teasing all of you Angry Birds stans out there with a clear, yet simple image of an Angry Bird in Star Wars gear. So if we deduce correctly– then Rovio clearly has an Angry Birds Star Wars follow-up in the making. Unfortunately, there’s no additional detail about what to expect from this new game, except that it will have a July 15th unveil date (peep the #July15 hashtag)— meaning we’re just days away from seeing this new game. Hopefully you folks can try to contain your excitement in the meantime.

The latest update for Angry Birds Seasons will be available next week and will be called Abra-Ca-Bacon, Rovio announced today. The game will feature 30 new levels for players to conquer, as well as six additional levels that will be unlockable as players progress through the game. The biggest change with Abra-Ca-Bacon will be the introduction of a new gameplay mechanic called Portals. Just as the name suggests, Portals are secret entrances that can suck objects in at one end, and spit them out at the other end. The Portals aren’t just limited to your Angry Birds, as they can also propel Bad Piggies, blocks and other environmental objects.
The update will be available for download on May 16. You can see the portals in action in Rovio’s promo trailer after the break.
Rovio’s games, including Angry Birds, have been an enormous hit in the mobile games market, but one inconvenience had been that game progress didn’t sync across devices. Rovio Accounts have been rolled out to fix this annoyance. Requiring only an email address, the new feature allows users to sync game progress on one device and continue playing where they left off on another device.
Rovio Accounts are currently extremely limited. They are available globally for The Croods and Angry Birds for iOS in only Finland and Poland. Rovio will continue rolling this feature out to other apps and regions, but for now, you’re going to have to wait if you want to sync your Angry Birds game in North America.
If you play The Croods, or Angry Birds in Finland or Poland, how is the new feature is working for you? Let us know below.
