Seriously should also have Star Wars and In Space.

I like the franchise but I think this release is insane , ok mark it up a little for cleaned up graphics and ability to play on TV and make it $10 with Star Wars and space and you got a good deal.
Why didn't they release last year on Wii and Wii U ? I hardly think the game needs extra effort .
I can't believe it sold so much on 360 and PS3 .

I think Angry Birds 3DS was the best selling third party game in US.

Ever.
