Angry Birds Trilogy Slingshots Onto PS3, Xbox 360 and 3DS

AngryBirdsTrilogy

Although no longer at the peak of its popularity, the Angry Birds craze is spreading its wings and slingshot-launching onto PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS in a retail bundle titled Angry Birds Trilogy. Nope, there’s no Vita version (not that’s been announced at least), which seems odd since it’s a better fit for Angry Birds than the other platforms.

Anyhow…

Rovio’s bird-flinging physics puzzle game is being published by Activision (add another franchise everyone likes to hate on as “overrated” to their stable) and rebuilt from the ground-up for consoles by Dead Nation and Super Stardust developer Housemarque.

As indicated by the title, Angry Birds Trilogy will contain three games: Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angy Birds Rio. For some reason Angry Birds Space was left out, probably because calling the compilation ‘Angy Birds Tetralogy’ wouldn’t have sounded as cool. Trilogies are hip. Everyone loves a trilogy.

This triple-pack of Angry Birds madness will feature motion control support (PlayStation Move on PS3 and Kinect on Xbox 360), StreetPass and 3D functionality on the 3DS, enhanced HD graphics, updated level environments, and other features still to be announced.

Angry Birds Trilogy will be out in time for the holidays, retailing for $40 on consoles and $30 on the 3DS. Those prices sound extremely inflated considering these games are free or dirt-cheap on mobile devices, but hopefully there’s additional content to justify the rate hike.
