Angry Birds hits retail this month
10th Nov 2011 | 11:41
Angry Birds, which has been downloaded over 500 million times in less than two years, is finally getting a retail release later this month.
Whether you'll want to pick up the original game on PC for a tenner is another question entirely, but it makes sense for arguably the world's most popular game to explore different distribution avenues.
Angry Birds will launch on November 25 for £10.20, while Angry Birds Rio is due in time for Christmas and Angry Birds Seasons in 2012, MCV reports.
"Boxed retail is another way to reach more audience," said Rovio spokesperson Ville Heijari. "Digital and mobile are still at the core of our business, but boxed retail is a good addition for taking the brand forward."
