By now it should be clear to anyone that Rovio is ready to cash in on any opportunity to keep their money-printing Angry Birds franchise in the public mind … and what better example of how best to do that than the 35-year old Star Wars franchise?
On November 8th Rovio will be releasing a Star Wars themed Angry Birds game for iOS and Android. Not many details yet, just this little snippet:
It doesn’t stop there though, we’ll have a whole host of toys, animations and other Angry Birds Star Wars goodness to enjoy! So, watch the video a few times, follow our Tumblr page and check back every day – this is just the beginning.
May the birds be with you
Here is the teaser trailer:
There are also a number of tie-ins planned in terms of toys, plushies and costumes! Will it never end?!?
What do you think? Shameless and crass? Will you buy it anyway?
