The Activision-backed Angry Birds Trilogy
will not just be a quick cash-grab according to Rovio
executive vice president of games, Petri Järvilehto. The title will bring Angry Birds
, Angry Birds Seasons
and Angry Birds Rio
together on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and 3DS at the end of this year. The various console versions will make use of the new control schemes and will feature HD graphics.
Järvilehto said that the Trilogy will take advantage of the unique elements of each platform whether it uses the capabilities of the Kinect on Xbox 360, the Move on PlayStation 3, or the Stereoscopic 3D and Streetpass features of the Nintendo 3DS. Järvilehto said, “We are working hard to ensure that no matter what platform you choose to play on, you will always get the best possible game play experience.”Järvilehto mentioned and teased some other features from the Trilogy. “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.”
The Angry Birds franchise has been immensely successful since its launch in 2009. It has spawned a range of merchandise, a number of different games on different platforms, and even plans for a TV or film. The franchise has been so popular that Rovio has avoided releasing a new IP until today. The developer released the physics-based puzzle game,Amazing Alex
, on iOS and Android.Angry Birds Trilogy will be released this winter on Xbox, PlayStation 3 and 3DS and we are sure it is going to be another success story.
