Bird-flinging pig-squashing action is coming to consoles with the release of Angry Birds HD, according to the game's developers.

 
In an unusual move, Activision plans to release the casual game for consoles in full high-definition, with more details only weeks away.
 
"We'll have some news for you in about two weeks," Activision told The Escapist. "Wait until you see Angry Birds on consoles in HD."

It is not clear what consoles we can expect the game on and if it will be a download-only title or something that finds its way onto store shelves.
 
Angry Birds might be good fun and extremely popular, but it's probably one of the last games we would think of that would benefit from the high-definition treatment. Cartoon 2D graphics just tend not to look noticeably different with a higher resolution. The short-sighted among us might benefit from the larger displays on a TV screen, but we could just as easily hold our smartphones and tablets closer to our faces for the same effect.
 
Casual mobile gaming like Angry Birds is typically seen as a threat to the console market, but if it can actually tap into the latter and help it grow, perhaps with some unique gameplay features (Wii U motion-controlled bird-catapulting, anyone?), then it might just be more of an asset than a threat.
