Angry Birds Star Wars 2 gets Skylanders-like toys

Rovio and Lucasfilm have announced Angry Birds Star Wars 2 for iPhone and iPad. The game is based on the Star Wars prequel trilogy and will let players play as the birds or choose to "Join the Pork Side". In a first for the series, the title will launch alongside Skylanders-like toys, allowing users to scan over 30 characters directly into the game using a new line of collectable Telepods figures from Hasbro. Angry Birds Star Wars 2 will launch on the App Store on September 19. Rovio says its release will be accompanied by new plush toys, books, apparel and more.

Bundling Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio, the Angry Birds Trilogy is coming to Wii U this August. The game released on Xbox 360, PS3 and 3DS last year and quickly became a million-selling title. The Angry Birds series hit one billion downloads across all platforms in May 2012.

    Nintendo would make so much money if they started doing this for their Pokemon games.
