Konami will soon launch a digital Star Wars card battle game for iOS called Star Wars: Force Collection. There will be cards for 230 of the characters and vehicles found in all six Star Wars films. The game will take players across the Star Wars galaxy on various missions, according to Konami:
Players will cross the Star Wars™ galaxy completing quests, fighting battles, and collecting powerful cards and upgrades. As players progress, their actions will determine whether they join and fight on the light or dark side of the Force during global player events.
Players will battle the game as well as other players. Defeating other players will allow you to level up your Battle Ranking by looting their blueprint pieces. Use these pieces to construct vehicles that give you an advantage during combat.
Star Wars: Force Collection will be released on September 4 as a free download. Will it be with you?
The latest in the Angry Birds series has become official, with Angry Birds Star Wars II catapulting our way on September 19. As expected from the earlier promo shot, the new game covers the prequel trilogy, and this time around is bringing Skylanders-esque figurines from Hasbro into play. The Telepods as they’re known, will be available to buy from toy stores, and by holding them over the camera on your iOS device you’ll be able to zap the character into the game. So, an out-of-app purchase, then.
We’re looking at about 30 new characters, and this time around you even get to choose which side of the force you want to play as; Jedi or Pork Side. Rovio isn’t disclosing whether or not Jar Jar Binks will be represented in some way, but frankly, if he isn’t, that’s a fail. Beyond announcing Star Wars II, Rovio also confirmed the Return of the Jedi themed update for the original Angry Birds Star Wars game will be dropping out of hyperspace sometime soon.
Whether you’re playing Pinball FX 2 on Xbox Live Arcade or Windows 8, Zen Pinball 2 on PlayStation Network or Mac, or Zen Pinball on iOS or Zen Pinball HD on Google Play, you’ll be able to supplement your virtual table collection with a trio of new Star Wars-themed tables later this month. These three tables will be available standalone on iOS and Google Play, or in the aforementioned games as DLC.
The first three tables offered are themed around Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett and the animated Clone Wars series, each with their own unique missions and layout – and in the case of Episode V, even has footage taken directly from the film that will display in the dot matrix window prior to every mission.
A total of 10 different Star Wars Pinball tables are planned. Zen Studios has yet to finalize pricing, but we’ll be sure to pass along that info as soon as it’s announced.
