Will you join the Pork Side?

Can't get enough Angry Birds in your gaming diet? We find that hard to believe, but just in case, Rovio is planning to launch Angry Birds Star Wars II on September 19, 2013. The upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars title will take on the prequels, a path that opens the door to over 30 new characters, all of which you'll be able to play, Rovio says. And new to this edition, you'll have the option of joining the Pork Side.

There will be new levels, challenges, and abilities, of course, but also a toy tie-in that you can use with your phone or tablet.

"To compliment this wide lineup of characters, there will also be a line of over 30 collectable Telepods figures from Hasbro," Rovio said . "Placing these figures onto your phone or tablet camera will scan your character of choice directly into the game, allowing you to select new characters on the fly."

Might Jar Jar Binks may an appearance? Rovio at this point says it's declining to comment on rumors or speculation that he'll be in the game, so your guess is as good as ours.
