'Angry Birds Trilogy' Sells 1 Million, Coming To Wii U This Year

After 1 million sales across PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS, Activision and Rovio today announced that the "Angry Birds Trilogy" will be soaring over to Wii and Wii U later this year.

"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, Inc.

The collection combines three of the franchise's most successful games – "Angry Birds," "Angry Birds Seasons" and "Angry Birds Rio" – which have been completely recreated in HD with refined controls, all-new animations and interactive backgrounds. 700+ levels with more than 150 hours of gameplay should be plenty to keep you busy.

"It was certainly satisfying to see Angry Birds gameplay adapt so well to other platforms in 2012," said Petri Järvilehto, EVP of Games for Rovio. "The features specific to the Wii U are very intriguing to us, so we’re excited to release this version to fans."

What exactly those specific features are hasn't been revealed, but considering Angry Birds was born on tablets and smartphones we wouldn't be surprised to see touch-controlled off-screen play on Wii U.
