‘Angry Birds Star Wars 2’ Gets Battle of Naboo Update
Angry Birds Go! hit mobile platforms this week, taking the Angry Birds franchise in an entirely new direction with its downhill kart racing mechanics.
While the new game has been the focus of Rovio marketing for weeks now, the Angry Birds developer is still creating content for its more classic Angry Birds games at what seems to be a nearly constant pace. Rovio this month has released its first big update for Angry Birds Star Wars 2.
