Next week is going to be a very busy one for new game releases, and while Assassin’s Creed IV and Battlefield 4 are likely to get the most attention, Angry Birds Star Wars also releases for consoles and handhelds. If it happens to repeat the success of the Angry Birds Trilogy, expect Star Wars to eventually become a million seller.
Shortly after the original announcement for Angry Birds Star Wars, Gamefly put up a listing for PS4/Xbox One versions of the game, a sentiment mirrored by an ESRB rating of next-gen versions for the title:
This is a puzzle-action game based on characters from the Star Wars franchise. Players use a slingshot to lob “cartoony” birds at pigs scattered among wooden, stone, and glass structures. Some birds also slash at structures with light sabers, or shoot at structures with laser/blaster pistols. One bird is able to summon a spaceship that shoots several lasers at the structure before flying away. In one scene, a large mucus-like substance appears between a window and a character’s nose.
This wouldn’t be the first time that Activision released an Angry Birds title on other systems after launch, as the Angry Birds Trilogy recently released on the PlayStation Vita for a full $39.99, a year after it came out for PS3, Xbox 360 and 3DS.
We’ll let you know if Activision confirms Angry Birds Star Wars for next-gen consoles.
