Angry Birds Trilogy is a compilation of Angry Birds games and episodes for the Nintendo 3DS, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PlayStation 3 by Rovio Entertainment and Activision. It bundles Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio on one disc or 3DS cartridge. It also includes various gameplay updates. It costs U.S. $29.99 on the Nintendo 3DS as of July 12th, 2012.
Rovio has said:
- "The backgrounds have been animated, we’ve added lighting modes, reactive backgrounds, the list goes on and on. We believe that there are a lot of people on the consoles who appreciate a great casual gameplay experience. This is a game that resonates across a wide audience on many platforms.'"
- "There are new cinematics, extras, and other entertaining content."
The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Angry Birds Trilogy are currently released. The release date for the 3DS version is October 2012 on Gamefaqs, but the same date as the other two versions on Gamestop.com. In February 2013, Rovio Entertainment announced that the game will be released on the Wii and Wii U later this year due to selling more than a million copies. It will be released on those consoles on August 13, 2013. Also, Angry Birds Star Wars will be released on PS3, Xbox 360, PSVita, 3DS, Wii and Wii U on October 29, 2013.
Aside from the backgrounds being changed in terms of animation, some other features were added to the backgrounds, such as Dandelions in Poached Eggs' first background. The birds' sprites have a thick outline, but they don't have smooth movement, they continue with their one-sprite expressions.
