Rovio Entertainment has just announced a new Angry Birds version called Star Wars, but what’s more interesting for all Microsoft fanboys out there is that the new game will also be available on Windows 8 platforms.
Angry Birds Star Wars will thus be released in November on a record number of platforms, including iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8.
The collaboration between Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm Ltd. will allow Windows 8 users to take full advantage of the new operating system’s touch features, such as swiping and pinching.
“This is the best Angry Birds game we’ve ever done. It’s the best parts of Angry Birds with all new cutting-edge gameplay set in in a galaxy far, far away,” said Peter Vesterbacka, the Mighty Eagle and CMO of Rovio.
