It looks like Rovio teaming up with Activision for Angry Birds Trilogy is paying off for both of them. Activision this morning revealed that more than 1 million copies of the game have been sold worldwide on the Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo 3DS. So with that success, they are looking to move onto the Wii and Wii U sometime this year. We're still sort of confused by there not being a PS Vita version in the works, but hey, maybe one day if sales pick up.
Read on for the announcement with more details.
Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc., and Rovio Entertainment today announced that Angry Birds™ Trilogy has soared past one million units sold worldwide. Released in September 2012 on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft with Kinect for Xbox 360 compatibility, the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system with full PlayStation Move support, and the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system, Angry Birds Trilogy won fans over by combining Rovio’s three legendary mobile titles, Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio, along with new content, levels and features. Building on this success, Activision and Rovio will release Angry Birds Trilogy for Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U systems in 2013.
“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.
"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.”
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-favorite puzzles like Wreck the Halls and Birdday Party.
