Topic: Whatever Happened to Angry Birds?

One thing that has been bugging me for the past few weeks when looking at Nintendo's weekly downloads is a lack of Angry Birds or any info regarding it. I know it's been announced for both WiiWare and DSiWare, but where is it? It's been released on several platforms so far (including the PSP from the PSN Store), but since the DSi and Wii seem like a perfect fit for the type of game, I just can't help but wonder whatever happened to the port.

Anyone know?

The Developers decided Nintendo was not for them I believe, or vice versa.

The developers are too busy making it a film.

As an actual bird, I believe I can tell you what happened:

Rovio decided that they could make more money expanding the franchise to different mediums (collectable toys, t-shirts sold at Hot Topic, movie(s?)) than focusing on porting the game to Nintendo's platforms. I'm sure they'll come eventually, but right now Rovio is focusing on where they feel their time and effort will make money.

Exactly.

Probably the same thing that happened to Super Meat Boy. They got a better offer.

Nothing the angry birds can be found on other platforms. Nintendo platforms will not have angry birds

Prob by the end of this year, Rovio is set on making the movie (which is already out) and making merchendise. I'm expecting when it comes out, it'll also have Angry Birds 2 Rio.

I'm guessing it'll be released on 3DS eshop instead towards the end of the year....Maybe either Wiiware as well...or Wii U. To maximise sales.

The trade says Maisel has already met with interested writers and directors on the project. Forbes goes further, saying writers are already working on a script that "will that would develop the game's backstory." Forbes adds that Rovio has been chatting with interested studios.

what backstory? there wasn't even a story to begin with!

Didn't they announce later that it will be coming to the 3DS(presumably eShop) with all versions of it included?

The game sucks anyway. I read in a business magazine that it was one of the top recent innovations. obviously they didn't realize that it is basically a 2d knock off of boomblox. it's essentially the same thing without any variety.

... Oooor, maybe a knockoff of every other castle destroying game before it...

Probably because Rovio is too busy dissing Nintendo and everything that isn't downloadable.
I like my $49 pieces of plastic...

I thought Angry Birds was going to be released for eShop and Wii U.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?
