Officially official.

It's Angry Birds Star Wars 1 plus an additional 20 levels, and a new multiplayer mode. Doesn't sound like much.

ACTIVISION PUBLISHING, INC. AND ROVIO ENTERTAINMENT UNVEIL ANGRY BIRDSTM STAR WARS® FOR GAMING SYSTEMS

London, UK – 18th July, 2013 – May the flock be with you! Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), in conjunction with Rovio Entertainment Ltd. and Lucasfilm Ltd., today announced that the mobile gaming sensation, Angry Birds™ Star Wars®, is expected to release on gaming console systems for the first time on 29th October, 2013. Complete with new levels, features and platform-unique design elements, these new editions will be available for the Xbox 360® games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®Vita, Nintendo’s Wii™ and Wii U™ systems and Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system.

“Downloaded more than 100 million times since its release last year, Angry Birds Star Wars melds together two of the biggest names in pop-culture entertainment for an out of this galaxy gaming experience,” remarked Jami Laes, Executive Vice President of Games at Rovio Entertainment. “Angry Birds and Star Wars™ are franchises with millions of fans around the world and we’re excited to partner with Activision to bring the marriage of these beloved properties to gamers everywhere this holiday season.”

Iterating on many of the engaging mechanics of Angry Birds™ and Angry Birds™ Space, Angry Birds Star Wars evolves the core game design and hilarious tone of previous entries in the series with new characters, challenges and environments that pay homage to the iconic hallmarks of the Star Wars universe. This title adds 20 never-before-seen exclusive levels – in addition to the existing 200 from the original Angry Birds Star Wars mobile game – and for the first time ever, multiplayer modes. Play alongside family members or friends in two-player co-op mode to achieve a combined high score or against them (up to four players) in competitive mode. In addition, the game delivers achievements and trophies, leaderboards, high-definition graphics (on HD-compatible systems) as well as unlockable bonus levels, items and content.

Forty dollars.

FORTY DOLLARS.

For fucking Angry Birds.

I love how it's cheapest on 3DS and most expensive on Wii U.

I did enjoy the 3DS Angry Birds Trilogy, bought it for $20. Doubt I'll buy this unless I get it cheap or has lot's of stages.

Wii U doesn't get shafted this time, j/k.
Seriously, prices aside, they're even trying to sell physical copies?

Edit: I just saw they're charging $50 for the WiiU version, oh boy.

This is the same price set Angry Birds Trilogy had.

Despite this, it's the best selling third party 3DS game in the US. O_o

Guys Angry Birds Trilogy is the best selling 3rd party game on the 3DS, despite its insane price tag. Weirdly enough these overpriced versions sell pretty well.

At first I thought 'Angry Birds on Vita, that's okay I guess'... then I remembered Angry Birds Trilogy existed so this wasn't gonna be cheap on any console. :/

What a lineup, saleswise, for 3DS this end of the year:

Pokémon X & Y
Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
Mario Party 3DS
Sonic Lost World
Angry Birds Star Wars

The big guns, I can't contain them

What's horrible is that I'm not joking in putting it in there. I mean, not completely :lol

More seriously: why's 39.99 on Vita? And why is 49.99 on Wii U.
