Angry Birds to Play Nice on Windows Phone 7 in April: Update

A little while ago we posted an article stating that Rovio had finally decided to deliver their highly popular multi-platform mobile game Angry Birds to the Windows Phone 7 platfrom sometime in the not too distant future, you can check out that article (here.)

Well that “not too distant future” isn’t that far away as according to an article over on Ubergizmo and by way of Winrumors, Microsoft has now confirmed that the green pig crushing addictive mobile game will play nice on the Windows Phone 7 platform as of the 6th of April.

Furthermore, not only will Angry Birds be making its way to WP7, but apparently Rovio will also add a further five titles to their line up and those will be Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode 1, Doodle Jump, Hydro Thunder Go, Plants and Zombies, and geoDefence.

Word is all the mobile games will have Xbox Live integration, leaderboards an achievements, so it looks like April will be a busy gaming time for Windows Phone 7 smartphone owners out there.

UPDATE: We had an email quoting –

“To clarify, the Must Have Games program will be launching late this spring with a new title each week including, “Angry Birds,” PopCap’s “Plants vs Zombies,” “Hydro Thunder Go,” “Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I,” “geoDefense” and “Doodle Jump.” We do not have a specific date to share at this time but we will follow-up when we do.
