angry-birds-star-wars-release-date-announcedRovio’s Angry Birds franchise debuted as a mobile game, although the game has since moved onto other platforms, such as for consoles and the PC. Well if you were planning on picking up a next-gen console like the Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for yourself, you might be interested to learn that Rovio will be releasing Angry Birds Star Wars (the first installment) for next-gen consoles in November which is also around the time where both consoles will be seeing their initial release. However for current-gen console gamers of the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3, PS VIta, Nintendo Wii, Wii U, and 3DS, the game is available starting from today.

For next-gen consoles, Angry Birds Star Wars will be taking advantage of several of the console’s features. The PlayStation 4 version of the game will rely on the DualShock 4’s touchpad, and will support the Move in single player and local multiplayer modes. As for the Xbox One, the game will feature exclusive timed challenges and will also play nicely with the new Kinect sensor that will be bundled together with the console. We’re not sure if these are the types of titles next-gen console gamers are looking forward to, but we guess it’s still an option for those who want to play a quick game or two.
