We know you’re all eagerly anticipating the release of the new mashup from Rovio and George Lucas and wondering how exactly the combination of…well, Angry Birds will fit with the atmosphere of the Star Wars universe. Well, Rovio has just released the first gameplay video of Angry Birds Star Wars, and we’re liking what we seeing.
It seems that the game will stay true to the mechanics of the Angry Birds series while introducing new gameplay elements and powers for the individual birds. Some birds will have the power to slice through structures using their lightsabers while other birds will be able to use the force to collapse structures before bowling them over. You can try out the game for yourself when it officially drops on November 8 this week.
