Activision and Rovio have confirmed that the Angry Birds Trilogy for consoles is currently under development.
The trilogy will include the following: The Original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Season and the Angry Birds Rio. They will be excluding the Angry Birds Space on this release.
The game will be designed using one disk or one cartridge for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS.According to the IGN Online Store, it will be released December this year.
Petri Jarvilehto, Rovio’s executive vice president, told IGN that they will be developing “from the ground up” with HDTVs in mind. He also said that the release will feature cinematic cut scenes, and additional features unique to the console versions of the game. Moreover, it will be structured to display on HD TVs.
Jarvilehto confirmed that individual leaderboards will make an appearance on each level.
“The backgrounds have been animated, we’ve added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on,” Jarvilehto 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.”
More good news for Xbox 360 users for Rovio will offer Kinect support with this release of Angry Birds. Those who will use the PlayStation 3 version will have PS Move support. Nintendo’s StreetPass will also be facilitated on the upcoming release.
Angry Birds has always been popular since its arrival on iOS and Android devices. It continues to be on fire because of its unique gameplay style and mind-boggling creative puzzles. It is also available as a browser-based game and in a tailored version for Facebook.
Rovio and Activision continues to spread Angry Bird’s popularity not just on the PC, smart phones and tablet industries but also on the gaming console industry. If this would still be a success, then Angry Birds might get the title of being the most successful puzzle game being ported into different hardwares.
I still play Angry Birds even if it is now old and mainstream. (Still having fun knocking out those green pigs!Hell Yeah!).
