A flock of Angry Birds is heading for Nintendo this summer.

Starting August 13, the Angry Birds trilogy of Angry Birds, Angry Birds: Seasons, and Angry Birds: Rio will take off for the Nintendo Wii and Wii U consoles.

Angry Birds maker Rovio revealed the news in a promotional video posted on YouTube on Wednesday. The promo dives into the usual angry gameplay but caps off by displaying boxed sets of the trilogy for both of Nintendo's game consoles.

Rovio promises 140 hours of gameplay across 30 episodes, while the promo touts 40 hours of "bonus" gameplay. The trilogy will also offer Wii U Gamepad and TV swap capability, touch-screen controls, and online leaderboards.
