If you’re one of the fortunate people yet to experience Angry Birds, you may no longer be safe. Activision has announced the game available on just about every other tech device in existence is now on the way to Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U.

It won’t just be the regular old Angry Birds though, this’ll be the premier edition known as Angry Birds Trilogy. It’ll be arriving sometime this year as well so brace yourself.

The press release doesn’t give much away in regards to features specific to the Wii and Wii U versions of Trilogy, but it does make the effort to mention previous platforms the game has been released on, successful on, how much it’s sold (1 million units worldwide), and also justify its addictive nature.

We’re sure Rovio Entertainment is thrilled being able to reach out to so many people worldwide with flying birds and stationary piggies.

I’ve been writing about video games since 2006 and playing them since I was a kid. I started out with a copy of Mario & Yoshi on the Game Boy and before I knew it was in debt to Tom Nook. These days I spend much of my time trawling the eShop for the latest downloadable hit.

    I think I’m the last person yet to play Angry Birds. I’l probably get it for WiiU though, I like the idea of stylus control and big screen area to use it on.
