Angry Birds Star Wars video shows off gameplay

Lightsaber-wielding avians take on porcine Stormtroopers in new trailer

Rovio's Angry Birds juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down, with Angry Birds Star Wars flapping onto iOS, Android Windows Phone, PC and Mac on November 8th.

Perhaps surprisingly, Angry Birds Star Wars isn't an update of Angry Birds Space, instead adding Star Wars costumes and new abilities to the original game.

Those curious to see what new physics-based challenges Star Wars has brought to the world of Angry Birds can check out the video below – in which Luke Skywalker hacks apart buildings with a lightsaber, and Princess Leia uses some sort of tractor beam to bring down an AT-AT walker.
