Okay, look, I know that many of you have probably had your fill of Angry Birds over the years, but it looks like more than a few of you still can’t get enough of the disgruntled fowl. Activision and Rovio Entertainment have announced that the console version of Angry Birds Trilogy has officially swooped past the one million units sold mark, a number that will only increase as the developer/publisher duo announce plans to bring the game to the Wii family of consoles later this year.
Angry Birds trilogy originally launched back in Sept. 2012 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo 3DS. The game proper included the three main titles in the series including the original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio. That amounted to around 700-plus levels of bird flinging action, complete with all new animations, HD graphics and interactive backgrounds.
Later in the year, the Anger Management DLC dropped, offering another 130 levels from previous Angry Birds updates, usually revolving around holiday themes.
To date, Angry Birds Trilogy has sold more than a million copies worldwide.
“Angry Birds’ proven formula for fun and addicting gameplay translated perfectly to the big screen and the consumer response has been overwhelming,” said Activision Publishing’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Jennifer Mirabelli.
Now that it’s been a big success on just about every other platform, it looks like Angry Birds Trilogy will be launching onto the Nintendo Wii and Wii U games consoles sometime later this year.
“The features specific to the Wii U are very intriguing to us, so we’re excited to release this version to fans,” said Rovio’s EVP of Games, Petri Jarvilehto.
Given the fact that the Wii U’s main feature is that giant touch screen on the controller, something the mobile-born Angry Birds franchise is intimately familiar with, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that that might be the “very intriguing” feature Jarvilehto was referencing.
