Angry Birds confirmed for Nintendo 3DS 2011 release

Secret Angry Birds level teased during Super Bowl advert

Angry Birds developer Rovio has announced it is to bring the bird-flinging gaming sensation to the Nintendo 3DS later this year as the title’s iOS and Android offerings add 16 new levels in a free update.

Responding to fan enquiries via micro-blogging site Twitter,  Rovia confirmed it was planning to take its global phenomenon of a game to Nintendo consoles declaring: “Wii and 3DS later in the year.”

The Angry Birds creators went on to add that the Nintendo-bound releases will be available exclusively as a digital download stating: "We prefer downloads and digital distribution on all platforms, it's green like the pigs."

Expanding on exactly what Angry Birds content future 3DS owners can expect, the Rovia Twitter feed went on to say: “we would bring all three current Angry Birds games over,” in reference to the standard Angry Birds title, Angry Birds Seasons and the upcoming movie tie-in Angry Birds Rio.

Entitled Ham ‘Em High, the free mobile platform update, available for download now via Apple’s App Store and the Android market, adds 15 western themed levels to the mobile gaming sensation with a 16th hidden level being teased in a advert for the upcoming film release Rio aired in the US during last night’s Super Bowl.
