Angry Birds Star Wars flying onto consoles this fall

After recently announcing that the Angry Birds Trilogy would be coming to the Nintendo Wii and Wii U, Rovio has announced today that Angry Birds Star Wars will be making its way to a slew of consoles this fall. Previously available for smartphones, tablets, PC, and Mac, the game will be headed to the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, PS Vita, and the 3DS starting on October 29.

Angry Birds Star Wars is the latest game from Rovio to make a console debut. The Angry Birds series has seen a lot of traffic on mobile devices, as well as desktop platforms, but a console presence hasn't been anything too exciting, and it looks like Rovio wants to change that with this sci-fi crossover.

Perhaps one of the biggest benefits that console gamers will have when they buy the game is the inclusion of 20 new levels exclusive to the console version, as well as new two-player co-operative mode and two-to-four player multiplayer modes — something that the mobile versions and desktop version don't have, sadly.

The announcement follows the recent unveiling of Angry Birds Star Wars II, which is the sequel to the original game that is heading to consoles. The second game in the series will be released on September 19, and will take on the Star Wars prequel. The game will also come with a set of new figurines called Telepods that players can collect and use in the game to unlock special powers and such.
