HELSINKI (AFP) - The latest instalment of the Angry Birds video game series from Finnish game maker Rovio topped download rankings on Thursday on its release in several Western countries.

Angry Birds Star Wars II was the most downloaded application from AppStores in several countries, including the United States (US), France and Germany, according to download market analysts App Annie.

In China, where Rovio has announced plans for a major expansion, the game was the fourth most popular.

Earlier in September Rovio also launched a line of toys made by US toy giant Hasbro, which allow players to "teleport" characters into the video game world using web cameras on mobile phones and tablets.
