Angry Birds Star Wars is set to release on Nov. 8 for iOs, Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8. However, the game is not the only product coming from the collaboration. Rovio is preparing to make an aggressive retail push for Angry Birds Star Wars by releasing merchandise such as action figures, apparel, board games, collectible plush toys and even Halloween costumes. According to Rovio, products will be available at retailers starting Oct. 28 but commenters on Gaming Illustrated have already noticed items featuring the Angry Birds Star Wars name on store shelves. The game is the fifth installment in the Angry Birds game series. The original Angry Birds game launched in 2009 and quickly went on to become a major hit on the casual gaming market. The game and its successful spin-offs have been downloaded over a billion times. Rovio has maintained success while mobile competitor Zynga has struggled. That success has prompted more development from Rovio. The company released Amazing Alex in July and Angry Birds spin-off Bad Piggies as a separate property last month.
More information regarding Angry Birds Star Wars is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
