New Angry Birds Star Wars trailer offers deeper look at game play

The November 8th release date for Angry Birds Star Wars is fast approaching and Rovio has teased us with another trailer. This one gives us a much better look at what the game play will be like (SPOILER: you fling birds at pigs) and shows us a few more characters than last week’s teaser. The biggest crossover in casual gaming history looks like it will have everything we’d hoped for: light sabers? check! chewbacca with a beak? check! borderline incestuous birds? check! OK, we still don’t know about that one but there IS a Luke and Leia.

Latest Angry Birds Star Wars teaser video from Rovio gives some gameplay hints

Fans of the Angry Birds franchise are no doubt aware that we are only a little over a week away from the release of the Angry Birds: Star Wars version on November 8th. Combining the two popular brands, Rovio is hoping it will have another hit on its hands.

In their latest video trailer, we get our first look at some of the gameplay unique to this version. The red bird, aka Luke Skywalker, is shown using a lightsaber to take out the piggies’ obstacles. Meanwhile, the Leia character, a pink bird, is shown shooting lasers on her arc of destruction. As far as locations, we see Tatooine and Hoth, which includes AT-AT walkers in action.
