Let's force choke some birds

Angry Birds Star Wars 2 was due to launch tomorrow, but since there's just not enough chaos with updating to iOS 7 right now, Rovio thought they'd kick off their latest physics game across Android, iOS, and Windows Phone today.

You'll find a lot of the characters form the original Angry Birds: Star Wars game, plus many more. 

Gameplay-wise, there are quite a few new features, like being able to pick to play on the Pork side, a tie in with real-world Telepod models, and not to mention a ton of new levels based on settings from the beloved movies.

Although I always found the cross-licensing for Angry Birds: Star Wars a little tacky, but from a business standpoint, it's hard to argue with the merchandising potential. 

The download link's above - give it a shot and let us know what you think!

You forget Android users care not for iOS release dates. Nor should they be imposed on by them.... and the vis versa is also true

You forget that not everyone uses just Android or just iOS. Some of us use both.... and Widows and BB.
In short I do care what is going on with iOS.

That's correct. The little figures each have a small QR code sticker on the bottom and they sit on a clear plastic tower/base that has some magnification capability.

My 5-year old son is thrilled. He's been waiting for this for months.

Wow, an application that's launched cross platoform a day ahead of launch. I'm so used to app launches on iOS only, and just waiting for the original, of course, Rovio is one of the best for this. Anyway, I just DL'd. As a point of caution, it looks like there are a bunch of Angry Bird Star Wars II apps out there, but only two Rovio offical ones, a free app and a $0.99 app. I'd stay clear of non-Rovio ones.

Cheers, it don't show up when I searched the play store in Canada, but I could get it when I clicked on your link, nice one :-) !

As normal, I get the game, play a few levels, get upset, and uninstall. All in 10 mins. Damn you Rovio
