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.

Andy has been writing about games since 1999, when he nagged the Editors of his University newspaper so much they let him start a brand-new video games section. After that he worked in print mags for over 10 years before switching to the murky world of online editing, when he became Executive Editor on GamesRadar. Now he uses his ill-gotten power and influence to write endless, beard-stroking think-pieces on Destiny and Game of Thrones. Spoil the latest episode of the show, and he will cut you.
