Rovio Entertainment’s flying fighters Angry Birds managed to pass the one million units sold mark with the launch of the Angry Birds Trilogy a couple of months ago.
“Angry Birds’ proven formula for fun and addicting gameplay translated perfectly to the big screen and the consumer response has been overwhelming,” said Jennifer Mirabelli, VP of Sales and Marketing for Activision Publishing.
Released in September 2012, Angry Birds Trilogy has been made available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the Nintendo 3DS, and includes the original Angry Birds, the seasonal Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio, which is based on the animated film Rio.
Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U will also be able to play the game soon, as the title will launch on both consoles later this year.
“It was certainly satisfying to see Angry Birds gameplay adapt so well to other platforms in 2012. The features specific to the Wii U are very intriguing to us, so we’re excited to release this version to fans,” said Petri Järvilehto, EVP of Games for Rovio.
According to Rovio, “completely recreated in striking HD with refined controls, gamers can play Angry Birds Trilogy with all-new animations and interactive backgrounds through 700+ levels with more than 150 hours of addictive gameplay. Angry Birds Trilogy: Anger Management, the recently released DLC pack, features even more content with 130 fan-favourite puzzles like Wreck the Halls and Birdday Party.”
