Now in the Store: Angry Birds Star Wars

These are the birds you’re looking for. Angry Birds Star Wars, Rovio’s highly-anticipated mash up between pigs and Princess Leia, launched worldwide today—including for Windows Phone 8. Grab it now.

The game, which costs 99 cents in the Store and requires Windows Phone 8, reimagines Angry Birds characters as the Star Wars cast, with a storyline straight from the beloved space opera—from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star. Your task: Dodge Imperial Pigtroopers, laser turrets, sand people, and the dark side the Force on the way to the ultimate showdown against Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs.

The Millennium Falcon definitely takes on a whole new meaning here.

The game features more than 80 levels (including bonus ones), iconic Star Wars locales, and familiar weaponry: Lightsabers, Blasters, and Jedi powers. (Check out the fun trailer Rovio created for a taste.)

  

Best of all, Rovio also promises future free updates: “This is only the beginning of the epic saga.”

May the birds be with you.
