Multiple Angry Birds Launching Themselves at 3DSWare

Posted by James Newton

Digital downloads confirmed

The relentless onslaught of Angry Birds to conquer all mankind's free time continues apace, with the game heading to WiiWare and DS, but the avian domination doesn't stop there, with the title flocking to 3DSWare in future too.

Developer Rovio Mobile confirmed via Twitter that three Angry Birds games – presumably Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons and the upcoming Angry Birds Rio – would all be coming to the 3DS's eShop in future rather than retail.

With the Nintendo 3DS eShop launching in May you won't be seeing the birds and the pigs for the first few months of the 3DS launch period. Enjoy the respite: Angry Bird world domination is just a few months away.

That sounds like a great piece of experience at any price!

And Angry Birds Rio is an advertisement and will be free on everything else. Are they going to force them to charge for it on the 3DS?

Yay, go Rovio! Activating super Finland powers...

I have seen my friend playing Angry Birds with his Samsung Galaxy (or whatever it is called) and it looked pretty fun.

Glad to hear it's coming on WiiWare too, it could do with the content

@andyutd97 While, as always, we appreciate your email about this, we were already aware of this news at the time. Thanks, though!

@ Nintendolife: Do you plan to create an own 3DSWare part on your site, like WiiWare & DSiWare, and if yes, do you aready know when?

I am definitely going to skip this game. I already have it on my Phone and on my Tablet.

I'm sure we will L.Brown when the system is closer to release. I love this game on my PSP so I can't WAIT to see it in 3D.

I've actually never played Angry Birds before so I find this news very interesting. I will finally get to see what all the hype is about.

So its coming out for DS or DSiWare? Unless they add whole new features and multiplayer and stuff, I'm not spending 20+$ on it.

@15: If you're writing this off purely on the basis that it's "casual", then you're missing out on a lot

Grrr!!! Hood tech always gets the good stuff!!! Why don't they launch angry birds on the wii or dsi!?

I mean, like, why do good tech get good stuff!? You don't see angry birds on nintendo64!!!



theblackdragon said:

@Pkmnmaster760: The N64 was obsolete years before Angry Birds first came out on any system, much less a current or next-gen one. devs naturally want to see their games come out on the latest and greatest hardware. :3

I would like it if they updated the iphone version so you get a code that gives you the 3ds version for free, rather than buying the game twice
I very much doubt it though

I wonder if the games are in a bundle
