Rovio this morning took the wraps off of Angry Birds Star Wars II, the sequel to its hugely successful debut Star Wars game, which was released on November 8, 2012. This second game will feature content from the Prequel Trilogy and will be released on September 19, 2013. "The new game will tackle the prequels, introducing a wide roster of never-before-seen Angry Birds Star Wars characters," Rovio's blog post says. "The best part? You’ll get to play with over 30 of them!"
The blog post was mum on specific characters, but the game's Tumblr revealed that the fling-able pigs will include "a young pod-racing Anakin, Mace Windu, General Grievous, Darth Maul, and yes... even Jar Jar Binks!"
Rovio first teased a Prequel version of the game on Friday.
Check out Rovio's trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars II below.
