All Articles: Angry Birds Trilogy
The brothers Mario are venturing back into the RPG world with today’s release of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for the 3DS.
Tuesday will see the release of a few titles on the complete opposite end of the gaming spectrum including the multiplayer heistfest Payday 2 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360) and the latest strategy game in the Europa Universalis series, Europa Universalis IV (PC).
The rest of this week’s new releases all star anthropomorphized animals…
- There’s the PC version of WayForward’s DuckTales Remastered. Downloadable console versions will also be available this week and special retail editions will be available next week.
- There’s the Wii and Wii U port of Angry Birds Trilogy.
- And there’s Phineas and Ferb: Quest For Cool Stuff, which will be available for the 3DS, DS, Wii, Wii U, and Xbox 360.
I guess, technically, Phineas and Ferb aren’t animals. But they sure are weird looking.
After releasing the game on the 3DS, PS3, and Xbox 360 last year, Activision plans to fling Angry Brids Trilogy onto the Wii U and Wii this August 13.
The Trilogy includes Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, and Angry Birds Rio, along with 40 hours of “bonus gameplay,” and 19 exclusive episodes. The Wii U version also includes high definition graphics, GamePad touchscreen controls, and Off-TV play.
Angry Birds Trilogy will be available for the Wii U and Wii on August 13.
The Angry Birds fly high regardless of what platform they’re on. Activision has revealed that their HD compilation of the first three games, Angry Birds Trilogy, has “soared” past one million copies sold worldwide. The 3DS, PS3, and Xbox 360 game was originally released in September. To celebrate (and in a quest for more money), Activision and Rovio have announced that Angry Birds Trilogy will be released on the Wii U and the Wii by the end of the year.
“It was certainly satisfying to see Angry Birds gameplay adapt so well to other platforms in 2012,” said Petri Jarvilehto, Executive Vice President of Games for Rovio. “The features specific to the Wii U are very intriguing to us, so we’re excited to release this version to fans.”
Those Wii U-specific features will likely involve the use of the Wii U GamePad to fling birds at those crafty swine.
Sony has added five games to the PlayStation Store and… you’ll never believe it… one of them is a PSP game!
Corpse Party: Book of Shadows comes to Sony’s other handheld and “expands and elaborates” on the 2011 horror game. If you like adventure games and you haven’t upgraded to a Vita yet (or even if you have), it might be one to check out. Also available this week is two very different PS3 games focused on total destruction.
DMC: Devil May Cry is a fast-paced prequel to Dante’s battle against the demonic hordes. There’s gunplay and swordplay and other playful methods of giving a boot to the face of the denizens of Hell. On the other hand, Angry Birds Trilogy is all about flinging fat birds at even fatter pigs and destroying their houses. And you don’t even have to huff or puff.
Finally this week is a pair of PS2 classics. The underrated (but loved by many) Siren and the underrated (but loved by many) Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.
The Fall is here! The Fall is here! Say it with me… the Fall is here! Your Fall gaming rush begins now and it begins with the release of the latest expansion to the biggest MMO on the planet, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.
This week also marks the beginning of the annual soccer riot between EA Sports and Konami as both companies plan to release the latest iteration of their flagship soccer titles. FIFA Soccer 13 will appear on the 3DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Vita, Wii, and Xbox 360 while Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 go for the goal on the PS2, PS3, PSP, and Xbox 360.
A very different kind of kicking takes place in Team Ninja’s Dead or Alive 5. The latest game in the fighting franchise will punch and kick its way to the PS3 and Xbox 360 this week.
Hit the jump for the complete list of this week’s new releases. (more…)
