Behold, young Padawans, as Angry Birds Star Wars II is now live on the Store for Windows Phone 8 users—and it’s even a day early from the official September 19 launch date (beating out iOS and Android). What is even more fantastic? Those with a Lumia 520 or other 512 MB devices can get in on the action too.
The game weighs in at 32 MB and will cost you 99 cents (with a free trial). The epic saga continues in the follow up to the original Angry Birds Star Wars game, and we have to admit, it’s looking very fresh.
Featuring excellent HD graphics optimized for Windows Phone 8 and even optional in-app purchases (yes, they’re not going away), Angry Birds Star Wars II should keep many of you busy while in class, at work or avoiding your significant other (hey, we all do it).
So what’s new in version II? This edition of the game is focused on the god-awful prequel movies, but hey, that doesn’t mean it can’t be a fun game! It features the Pork Federation and you can even “Join the Pork Side” to play as “the fearsome Darth Maul, Emperor Palpatine” and more. And yes, Darth Maul has his patented double-lightsaber, which should be a blast to use in this game.
That’s actually hella cool.
You also get

For you, you can check out the trailer above to get an idea of the game or just head here to the Store to grab a free trial.
