Rovio, the development studio behind the smash hit Angry Birds has told Eurogamer that the company is currently looking to bring its franchise to “every console”. Rovio has stated that this includes the Wii U, along with the Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Let’s just hope they don’t milk the series too much…
“We really haven’t looked into the Wii U specifically yet – we haven’t announced anything for Nintendo consoles yet. But if you look at the control methods, if you look at the Wii U, I mean that’s a really, really natural match, so obviously we’re very interested in developing there as well.”
“[The 3DS is] a really really interesting platform,” he added. “Many people doomed it outright as it being somehow gimmicky, but obviously the same thing as with the Wii U: if you look at the 3DS, Angry Birds games would make a perfect match there.”

Wii U? I’ve just thought up a Co-Op Angry Birds!
Angry Birds is crappy and overrated, it’s appealing on smart phones because it’s cheap/free, it’s not the same market on actual consoles so they probably won’t be successful
Yeah pretty much, I think it is overrated, don;t get me wrong, the game is fun, but if this gets to console they would had to somehow justify you paying for the game.
Wasnt it supposed to be coming out on wiiware this year? And didnt rovio mock nintendo?
angry birds sucks. if they bring it to anything it should be the SEGA Urinal thing. that way i can piss on angry birds. >:D
What Sal said, I thought Nintendo didn’t like Rovio and vice-versa because of that “handheld games ruin console game value” and “handheld gaming will take over from consoles” stuff.
“Angry Birds” is a match only if you want “Angry Gamers.” Rovio had better start thinking up some core projects if they want to sell to the real gaming crowd on Nintendo.
I’d probably buy it if they bring it to 3DS.
I think we all know this will fail.
I could actually see this on the Wii U, that would be quite interesting, especially if they would change it to a first person view (you as the birds) on the controller screen. Now on the 3DS and others, I don’t know if it would be good.
Angry birds isn’t even a good game
by the time you get to the later levels, it turns into Kaizo angry birds
Please don’t ruin our beautiul Nintendo this way. Or Sony either! Keep our consoles and portables free of junk!
If it’s on the eShop for $2, fine. If it’s a cartridge that I have to pay $40 for, screw that.

WHO THE F**K CARES
Angry Birds is the least deserving piece of s**t I have seen in a long time. It is well polished, and that is literally all it has going for it. Otherwise it is a simple physics game that has been done 500,000 times before in free Flash apps, some of which are better.
I saw an Angry Birds plushie in the airport the other day, and it seriously upset me. Why why why does it get a plushie? Why do so many people buy it? I just don’t understand.
Crush the castle is way better than angry birds and it’s free
great things forfeature 3ds updates:
6.more software like ar and faceraidars
I wonder when this Angry Birds fad is going to fade out. I hope soon.
Funny how this guy said Nintendo was garbage & now he is there licking Nitnendo’s boots because now he wants MORE money. n.n
Didn’t he say that their games would kill gaming consoles? Also, games like Angry Bird are successful on phones since they are small time killers for some people; it’s not the same as an actual game that the core gamers would play on consoles. I hope they don’t become disappointed if people just flat out ignore this game. Otherwise it will be the “console’s fault,” right?
allthough i hate angry birds and think it is overated it will really help the wii u and 3ds bring in more people
DREAMCAST WILL RISE FROM THE ASHES AND IT WILL PWN BOTH NINTENDON’T & GAYSTATION.
SEGA DOES WHAT NINTENDON’T & THE REST COPY. SEGA HAD FIRST MICROPHONE, ONLINE, TOUCH, SCREEN ON A CONTROLLER, + MORE. SEGA ALWAYS WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE AHEAD OF ITS TIME.
I loved the Dreamcast and would totally buy another Sega console….but I’m still buying the Wii U also :-P
Da Vinci had invisoned an airplane/helicopter in like what 1000 or more years ago,phones were there when dreamcast came out,it was a no brainer but it wasnt advanced yet to utilize properly,now if they had hd graphics back then i would agree with you,because of those failed idea sega went bankrupt,so dont count on it bud,plus sega doesent have much to offer in games other then sonic which isnt that great
You lost the console wars; get over it. That was like a decade ago.
Oh and angry birds need to stay on phones and stuff consoles not so much. Plus why get it on anything now that you can get it for free with google chrome.
Well well well. Look who came crawling back to the consoles.
Isn’t it like a minigame sort of thing….? How will that work on a full console/handheld? Maybe a shop downloadable…
This would have to flesh this game out a hell of a lot more if they want to put it on a console.
They took this series too far. There are hundreds of games that are exactly the same as this one, without the crazy characters. A game that took a month to make isnt a game at all. It’s a stupid overated Iphone game.
it was expected this was going to happen
but 3d for the wii that is a must
