Rovio has gotten into the habit of launching each new Angry Birds game with a host of marketing tie-ins backing it up, so the idea of a fresh toy line powered by Hasbro's Telepods technology seems like a good fit. According to the official press release, players will be able to choose which characters and super powers they bring into battle by placing special action figures on a portal connected to their mobile device. More than 30 figures will be available at launch.
Fans will get to try out the tech at San Diego Comic-Con later this week.
Angry Birds Star Wars II will launch on September 19 across app stores worldwide.
