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.
