If you're one of the six people left on the planet who hasn't yet played an Angry Birds game, you're going to be offered yet another chance to get your poultry on. Yesterday, Activision confirmed that it's working with Rovio to publish a high-definition version of Angry Birds for the Nintendo 3DS, the Xbox 360, and the PlayStation 3.
The game, which bundles Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio, is appropriately called the Angry Birds Trilogy, and is, surprisingly, slated for a retail release. The Nintendo 3DS version of the game will reportedly sell for $29.99 USD, even though all three games combined on the iPad would cost about $6 USD.
However, Rovio Executive Vice President Petri Järvilehto promises that console gamers can expect lots of cool new content for their money. "You can think of the game as the ultimate collector's edition," he told IGN. "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.
"The backgrounds have been animated, we've added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on. We believe that there are a lot of people on the consoles who appreciate a great casual game play experience."
No word yet on when Angry Birds Trilogy will throw itself onto store shelves, but a Holiday 2012 release is logical. Think you'll pick up the game, or are you simply not interested in a physical relationship with the birds?
