KONAMI-developed Star Wars™: Force Collection hits France and Germany as Chewbacca-themed Contra mini-game celebrates Star Wars™ Day
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. today releases a fully localized version of its popular STAR WARS: FORCE COLLECTION iOS title for French and German users. The new skew also boasts a Chewbacca-themed mini-game based on KONAMI’s popular Contra franchise for the card-collecting title for existing players.
STAR WARS: FORCE COLLECTION allows users to play as a legendary Jedi Master or as an evil Sith Lord, within an epic battle between the Dark and Light sides of The Force. Using a card-based format, players are charged with assembling a team of favourite characters and vehicles from STAR WARS Episodes I-VI. Players have access to over 300 cards, each featuring instantly recognisable heroes, villains and technology, and must use them tactically to defeat their CPU or human opponent. Cards can be enhanced and produce formation attacks to counter specific threats.
The new Chewbacca stage coincides with the global ‘Star Wars Day’ celebrations, and captures all the fast-paced platforming action of the much-loved series. The free minigame sees Chewbacca battling Stormtroopers across four levels that range from the forests of Endor to the treacherous halls of an Imperial facility to help the cause of the Rebel Alliance. The bonus stage is available after completing the tutorial for STAR WARS: FORCE COLLECTION, and completion of its four stages is rewarded with a special trophy.
Users also benefit from the additional cards and a Super Star Destroyer Boss Event to further expand the STAR WARS: FORCE COLLECTION experience. The new iteration also introduces iconic cards for the iconic C-3PO and R2-D2 Droids™, adding to the existing 300+ heroes, villains, and vehicles available for use in a winning deck– and to take on the powerful Super Star Destroyer in the new Boss Event.
