Angry Birds Trilogy Flocks to Wii and Wii U in August

Just when you thought the piggies were safe...
If by chance you're one of the three people that hasn't yet played Rovio's mega-popular Angry Birds series, or prefer to play your pig-killing physics puzzlers on the big screen, you're in luck — Rovio has announced that Angry Birds Trilogy will launch on both Wii and Wii U in North America as retail titles on 13th August, while the European release date is unannounced but seems unlikely to be too different.
Previously released for 3DS and other platforms, Angry Birds Trilogy compiles three games in the hit series: Angry Birds, the holiday-based Angry Birds Seasons and the movie tie-in Angry Birds Rio. The collection unfortunately excludes Angry Birds Space, Bad Piggies and the recently released Angry Birds Star Wars, but we played the 3DS version and found it to be a rather enjoyable experience. The trailer for the title, below, does rather boldly promise a "bonus" 40 hours of gameplay.
There's no word yet on system-specific functionality for either version, though one would imagine GamePad usage would be ideal for the swipe-based gameplay.
