You can play as the pigs!

Rovio's tease from last week has been unveiled and it's pretty much what we expected: Angry Birds Star Wars II. Releasing September 19 for mobile devices, this sequel will span the three prequel movies and even incorporate physical toys inside the game. Oh, those smart, devious jerks!

It all starts with around 30 individual "Telepods," each representing a character that can be scanned into Angry Birds Star Wars II using your phone or tablet's camera. These are coming from Hasbro in September and knowing how well Star Wars has done with merchandising in the past, this is surely going to be only the beginning of what's in store for us.

I don't get the widespread outrage over so called "casual," simple-minded games. I can spend an afternoon plugging away at the most time-consuming and complex RPG imaginable, and if Angry Birds is thrown in every now and then, so be it. Yes, I'm reviewing an Angry Birds game. Deal with it.
