Angry Birds Space will crash into 3DS, maybe even PlayStation Vita

In fact, Finnish developer Rovio wants this version of Angry Birds to be on "all the screens," according to what company CMO (and Mighty Eagle) Peter Vesterbacka told Joystiq. This isn't terribly surprising considering it's a wonder that previous iterations didn't make it to your dishwasher. But this would make for yet another first for the franchise: appearance on a Nintendo device.

"With all our games, we're going for all the screens: Smartphones, tablets, TVs, the web, so we really want to bring Space to all the screens as well," Vesterbacka told Joystiq at this week's SXSW Interactive in Austin, TX. "As always, we have limited resources, so we can only do iOS, Android, PC and Mac for the launch, but the other platforms will follow shortly after."
And while Angry Birds Space is officially slated for 3DS, so is the entire existing catalog of Angry Birds adventures as promised. Better yet, Rovio has considered bringing Angry Birds Space to Sony's PS Vita, but that's ultimately up to Sony. (Though, Sony would be downright silly to pass this one up.)

"We'll have our games on the 3DS pretty soon. The Vita we haven't decided what to do about yet, but of course we want to be on all the screens, so let's see how the Vita does in the market," Vesterbacka said. "And of course, always when working with these console guys it's not that we can decide, it's really if Sony wants to have Angry Birds on Vita. It's more up to them than to us."
