Disney is teaming up with NimbleBit, the developer behind free-to-play hits like Tiny Tower, Pocket Planes, and Pocket Trains to release a new title called Star Wars: Tiny Death Star.

As noted by our sister site TouchArcade, the game appears to combine Tiny Tower-style gameplay with the Star Wars universe. In Tiny Tower, the goal was to build up a tower filled with various businesses, collecting and managing resources to continue to expand.

The Empire needs your help! In collaboration with LucasArts and Tiny Tower creators NimbleBit, Disney Mobile introduces Star Wars™: Tiny Death Star™, a new game for mobile devices. Live life on the dark side and join Emperor Palpatine and Darth Vader on a mission to attract Galactic bitizens, run intergalactic businesses, and build an all-new Death Star. Construct unique Star Wars themed locations to attract iconic characters and species to your space station in this 8-bit style game. Star Wars: Tiny Death Star will soon be available worldwide.

Though there is no prospective release date included with the game’s announcement, Disney says that it is coming soon, which could mean within the next week or two. Like other NimbleBit and Disney games, it will likely be free-to-play.

Tiny Tower isn't even a game - it's a "press buttons and wait" freemium app. The art direction and stuff is wonderful, but holy smokes is this thing a waste of time.

I'm a big Star Wars fan and will no doubt get it, but who is the dude on the far right front row supposed to be? Not entirely sure who is behind R2D2 either! Is it a 2nd Ewok?

I'm guessing an Ugnaught since he's on the "bad" side of the image.

How about Star Trek? I'm tired of Angry Birds, but I would be all over a Star Trek version. Same with "Pocket Trek" if NimbleBit would release it.

I'd be content with just an update to Tiny Tower with some new places. :)
