Angry Birds Star Wars II Official Gameplay Trailer

In the midst of all the app updates that Rovio has released in the past 48 hours or so — Moon of Endor and Cosmic Crystals — Rovio has also released the official gameplay trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars II. We’re only 5 days away from the worldwide launch, and questions need answering!

In the trailer, we get a few good looks at different character abilities. If you’ve been following the SW2 Character Teasers that Rovio has been releasing, most are old news. But Darth Vader is a new one, and exceptionally powerful.

So many questions, so little time until the launch! Happy flinging, may the birds be with you, and don’t miss the Red’s Mighty Feathers update coming on Monday!

    Yes he is like Luke Skywalker Jedi but instead of swinging it back and forth he swings them all at once

    PS: Darth Vader is more crazier

    I just might have to go out and get the Vader Telepod just so I can use him whenever I want. It’s like cheating #VaderBomb

    Yes, Darth Vader looks like the most powerful character in ABSW2.

    Vader’s power is a little too powerful. Just a little.

    Say that after you’ve tried it. Personally, I might just join the pork side in the new app, especially if it nets higher scores!!!

    Yes I have to agree with you @truckdriver that the curiosity and game play fun just might cause me to join the pork side and play my first game or level using PUs with the telepods. Grievious’s power looks interesting.
    The new characters and their new powers or upgraded powers just keeps us coming back for more.

    Is there like a package where we buy all telepods together in one shot?

    No, sorry. To get all 32 figures you need to get

    6 Sets
    -Star Destroyer {Darth Vader(E), Emperor Palpatine , Anakin Skywalker Podracer, Padme Amidala(E), Luke Skywalker Jedi, Jedi Youngling(E), Captain Panaka(E), Zam Wesell(E), Stormtrooper, Droideka(E)}
    -Death Star Trench Run {Luke Skywalker Pilot, TIE Fighter Pilot(E)}
    -Endor Chase {Biker Scout(E), Luke Skywalker Endor}
    -Battle of Geonosis {Mace Windu, Battle Droid(E)}
    -Bounty Hunters {Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jango Fett(E)}
    -Duel with Count Dooku {Count Dooku(E), Anakin Skywalker Padawan}

    A carrying case
    -Darth Vader Pig {Chewbacca(E)}

    A multi-pack
    -Jedi VS Sith {Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn(E), Anakin Skywalker Padawan, Emperor Palpatine, Darth Maul(E), General Grievous}

    And 4 to 7 two packs (depending on how lucky one is to find packs where both figures are ones that they need.
    -18 figures randomly packaged. 7 are only in the two packs. {Anakin Skywalker Sith, Jar Jar Binks, R2-D2, Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Han Solo, C-3PO}

    (E)=Exclusive to that set

    Wow. that’s a lot of packs:)
    any idea where can we get these?

    just saw them on amazon

    Gee, that’s a lot of money to spend O_O

    You can buy it at the intenet (could be on amazon, ebay, etc.) or maybe there’s some at toy store nearby you.

    If not purchasing your telepods online, I suggest Target. I’ve already seen them advertised, and the prices seem reasonable enough. Wal-Mart will probably get into the action as well, as perhaps will other retailers, like Best Buy.

    Toys R Us has a coupon for 25% off these (and other Star Wars toys). Good through the 18th.

    It looks like we need to ready a stack of banknote to collect all…
    But never mine, I had curious about its technology and at least I may buy a basic pack to see how’s the Telepods works… :)

    In the trailer try slow down on the part where they show all characters when being telepoded and you’ll find a yellow pork side character( I think it is Battle Droid) and another Anakin Skywalker character.

    Can the Telepods be used in smartphones or we can use it on tablets only?

    I can’t believe that the Telepods only support to the limited Android devices(Sony Xperia also not included)…Is it also need depends on hardware to see it works or not…

    By Hudson8823

    Those power made me breathless!!just can’t wait it!!
    And cheers that finally the first Rovio games get the first launch in Windows Phone!!!

    By Hudson8823

    About the Telepods,
    Curiously I liked to know which technology do Telepods using?Augmented-Reality?QR-code?

    By CC Jolly (@cc-jolly)

    Very good question. I dont know :-(

    Rank: Boss Hog with 14125 points
    By Josm (@josm)

    @Hudson8823 @cc-jolly Micro QR-code

    Rank: Sling God with 32110 points
    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    It’s a QR code, and the small clear stand they are placed on contains a magnifying glass to enlarge the code for the front-facing camera.

    By Hugo Morales

    Will the Telepods works in a tablet with a 0.3 Megapixels front camera?

    By Hudson8823

    Well let see that all Android devices with front camera(Or ever Windows Phone) can support the Telepods or not, since Hasbro said the list is not finalized…It’s no fair because some lower-end devices such as Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus can be support but some higher-end such as Sony Xperia Z won’t be…

    Firstly, I sincerely congratulate Rovio on this historic milestone of ABSWII. As I recall, when ABSW first came out, there was a lot of excitement, but it is still shadowed by the excitement generated by THIS new release and unveiling. Congratulations Rovio.

    While I was watching this video, several aspects stood out to me, and I must say that the video (like all other videos), are done superbly.

    First, this video showcases some abilities by both the pork side and the birds. The idea of playing as both sides is unfortunately not original, as a similar concept has appeared in the King Pig levels. However, this is the first time that this idea has appeared on a large scale. So, bravo! I have been following Rovio’s characters reveal almost week by week, day by day, thus most of the reveals are not foreign to me. Thus it is in an air of disappointment and shock that I see old Darth flinged off his slingshot, and his ability is beyond my imagination. I would not give any spoilers here, but just know that with an army of Darths could three-star any level that Rovio throw at you.

    Secondly, the synchronisation of music and action is amazing, and FINALLY I could hear Angry Birds Duel of the Fates in its full glory! I like how they change the tempo and rhythm, but with no change in the key and the melody. How the composers built up the piece is epic!

    @amslimfordy what did I discover from the video was something new….when we see the characters on the slingshot or on the side of it….we see a oval shape type something along the character…what does that mean? well,rovio is well in gud providing the best to the players…the shapes has got a symbol,which describes the power of character
    for example
    emperor: the shape has got lightning symbol
    mace windu : a u turn shape describing about his boomerang lightdaber
    podracer anakin:a dot with a arrow to show the podracing ability
    Darth maul:a symbol of dual light sabers
    there r many more examples ….so the point is that rovio is helping players remember the character abilities by giving hints ……

    By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

    Looks like it indicates that character’s ability (lightsaber-weilding, shooting, etc.)
