Angry Birds flying furiously onto Wii U

Angry Birds Trilogy is coming to Wii U this August--great news if you're one of the seven people in the world yet to experience Rovio's ubiquitous puzzle game. The Trilogy includes Angry Birds, AB Seasons and AB Rio; and this Wii U version will come with exclusive new levels.

Rovio confirmed the game's release via a YouTube video, which you can watch below. The Wii U version will have Gamepad and TV swap capabilities, touch screen controls, and online leaderboards. Pretty much what you'd expect.

You'll be able to pick up Angry Birds Trilogy for Wii U on 13 August in the US, and 16 August in the UK. No details on price yet, but the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions sell for $30 / £25. That's quite a hefty price-tag for what is--essentially--a trio of $0.99 / 79p mobile games.

    People buying a game for (probably) $30 when AB is now free on iPhones. Is it any wonder that this industry is in trouble? Well at least it will have touch screen unlike the 360 the free iPhone version has.

    While I can't bring myself to excuse the kind of moronic buying behaviour that allows this sort of profiteering to occur, I have to say that any idiots who shell out 15-30 times the cash they would on other platforms deserve everything they get. And I'm assuming they get herpes.
