Rovio announces an epic sequel: Angry Birds: Star Wars 2, will introduce collectible 'telepod' figures
As promised, Rovio has just announced a sequel to its massive hit title – Angry Birds: Star Wars on its blog.

Set to launch on September 19, the next iteration of probably-the-most-successful-mobile-game-ever will continue the Star Wars saga and feature over 30 “never-before-seen” characters from its universe. The cherry on top? Rovio has pretty much confirmed that beloved Jar Jar Binks will rank among them:

“At this point we will not comment on rumors or speculation that Jar Jar Binks will be in the game. “

Speaking of characters, the Disney-wannabe has taken its merchandising effort to the next level – collectible 'telepod' figures will be available from Hasbro Rovio says that placing the telepod on top of a smartphone's or a tablet's camera will prompt the app to scan it directly into the game. Pretty awesome stuff.

We may soon have a winner at our hands, for the Finnish-based company has taken a cue from its Bad Piggies spinoff – Angry Birds: Star Wars 2 will also allow you to choose your side!

Without any further ado, treat yourself to a Chewie-smashing-Darth Vader type action in the video below:

I loved Angry Bird then I got bored of it. Surprised how many still go and play these installments. Bad Piggies was good fun though, refreshing.

When playing AB you realise it well how small are still smartphones' screens. Hardly ever you can see the very target your shots have to hit. In my opinion flexible screens will open new stage of smartphone gaming. Now even 6'' is too little to talk about great experience and impressions...
