New Angry Birds Star Wars II coming in September includes telepods.
Rovio released the first trailer for the upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars II game. It will be released on September 19th and now has telepods in addition to new story elements. Telepods are physical characters you can buy at toy stores and then teleport into the game. There will be a line of over 30 collectable TELEPODS figures from Hasbro. 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.
