Rovio’s Executive Vice President of Games Petri Järvilehto has revealed that the Angry Birds game for consoles teased back at E3, is actually taking the form of the Trilogy so far, which has been “built from the ground up” for HDTVs.
“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 newly reworked trilogy bundles the original Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio on one disc or 3DS cartridge. Oddly enough though it doesn’t seem to be arriving on the PS Vita for now.
“The backgrounds have been animated, we’ve added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on,” Järvilehto said. “We believe that there are a lot of people on the consoles who appreciate a great casual game play experience. This is a game that resonates across a wide audience on many platforms.”
Angry Birds Trilogy will support Microsoft Kinect, PlayStation Move and StreetPass on the 3DS.
“There have been so many fans asking to be able to play the game on their home console with their friends and family, and so far we haven’t been able to offer anything to them,” he said. “Now we’re finally able to have a great high quality experience on those platforms.”
