'Ultimate collector's edition' of Angry Birds flocks to consoles soon

It's called Angry Birds Trilogy, and IGN reports that it crams the first three games in Rovio's record-setting franchise--Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds Rio--into one Xbox 360 DVD, one PS3 Blu-ray or one 3DS cartridge. According to Rovio executive VP of Games Petri Järvilehto, this version of the games was "built from the ground up" for HDTVs (and we imagine the 3DS).

"You can think of the game as the ultimate collector's edition," Järvilehto told IGN. "There are new cinematics, extras and other entertaining content. In addition all of the existing material has been uprezzed and re-treated for the high-resolution and big screen."

It appears that Activision is somehow in on the massive project--most likely as a publisher, although no release date has been announced for Angry Birds Trilogy. What we do know is that the game will feature support for Microsoft's Kinect motion controller for Xbox 360, Sony's Move motion controller for PS3 and StreetPass, the social feature within Nintendo's 3DS. Oh, and it'll look damn good doing it.

"The backgrounds have been animated, we've added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on," Järvilehto told IGN. "We believe that there are a lot of people on the consoles who appreciate a great casual game play experience. This is a game that resonates across a wide audience on many platforms." The takeover will soon be complete.
