Angry Birds Star Wars II Announcement

So not only are Rovio hoping to catch lightning in a bottle twice with another mash up of birds and pigs in a galaxy far far away, but the upcoming September sequel to this well reviewed extension of the Angry Birds franchise introduces a bit of a twist; Rovio are taking on Skylanders.

This means toys. It also mean platforms upon which to place these toys. They're called 'telepods', but they function the same way as the Skylanders portals. Buy the licensed toys, use the telepods to transport them into the upcoming game. It's a shrewd marketing ploy, but only time will tell if it's at all successful. In the meantime, have a look at the trailer. It's got a wookie bird.

It seems like a great sequel, save for the telepods. Hopefully, we won't be forced to buy these telepods in order to complete the game.
