It looks like Rovio’s Angry Birds series of games is finally going to take flight on Windows Phone 7 handsets, along with a special 3D version of the game designed especially for the Nintendo 3DS and LG Optimus 3D devices.
During an interview on Pocket-Lint, Rovio confirmed its plans to bring Angry Birds to Windows Phone 7 devices and for a new 3D version of the game coming to the Nintendo 3DS handheld and possibly the LG Optimus 3D mobile phone in the coming months.
Many Windows Phone 7 fans have been wondering why the game has been taking so long to arrive on their hardware, well it seems that Microsoft’s lawyers may be to blame, with Rovio’s Peter Vesterbacka stating that “Let’s just say, Microsoft has a lot of lawyers,”
There is no news yet as to whether the game will also become an “Xbox LIVE” title on the handsets, which would allow gamers access to achievements and leaderboards, or if the game will just become an indie based title.
Just before Windows Phone 7 launched in October 2010, Rovio and Microsoft had a small spat when the Seattle company took it upon themselves to use an Angry Birds icon to their gaming and apps advertising. Rovio were upset because Microsoft used it without the company’s permission.
