Angry Birds fans get ready for the newest addition of the popular game series. Angry Birds is moving from your mobile phone to your living room. Check out the newest addition of the Angry Birds Trilogy below.
Back at E3, Activision teased us with the fact that Angry Birds was coming to consoles. Now, we know it’s the Angry Birds Trilogy, and it’s “built from the ground up” for HDTVs, according to Rovio’s Executive Vice President of Games Petri Järvilehto.
“You can think of the game as the ultimate collector’s edition,” he said. “There are new cinematics, extras and other entertaining content. In addition all of the existing material has been uprezzed and re-treated for the high-resolution and big screen.”
Angry Birds Trilogy bundles the original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio on one disc or 3DS cartridge. Järvilehto wasn’t ready to say if players would get access to the free level packs iOS and Android players received, but he did say that there would now be individual leaderboards for each level.
“The backgrounds have been animated, we’ve added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on,” Järvilehto said. “We believe that there are a lot of people on the consoles who appreciate a great casual game play experience. This is a game that resonates across a wide audience on many platforms.”
Angry Birds Trilogy will support Microsoft Kinect, PlayStation Move and StreetPass on the 3DS. Järvilehto is happy to be bringing the birds to a brand new market this holiday.
“There have been so many fans asking to be able to play the game on their home console with their friends and family, and so far we haven’t been able to offer anything to them,” he said. “Now we’re finally able to have a great high quality experience on those platforms.”
