“Flappy Bird flapping its way to the big screen…”
Remember that game Flappy Bird? The one that caused you extreme stress after dying, yet still giving you enough to want to play it again, again and again some more? Well, on the back of the news that Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen is to re-release the game onto the app store [source:click here], he has also announced that he has teamed up with Microsoft to bring you Flappy Bird HD.
The game, adapted to utilise the Kinect features, will have players bopping up and down in order to fly the bird through the game without hitting the mario-like pipes. If Kinect isn’t your thing you’ll still be able to use the traditional controller in order to get your Flappy Bird fix. Flappy Bird HD will also have new levels as well as a multiplayer aspect, although what that consists of is currently unknown.
A source inside Microsoft said the following“We’re really excited to team up with Mr Nguyen and bring his highly popular mobile game to the next-generation for our users. Flappy Bird HD will also give gamers the opportunity to make the best use of the new Kinect system, something we’re really excited about. “
Flappy Bird HD is expected to smash into the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 and Xbox ONE this summer, and will be priced at a more than reasonable $4.99. Are you excited by this news? Will you be keen to show your Flappy Bird skills using Xbox’s Kinect? Let us know in the comments below.
[UPDATE: You guessed it, this of course was an April Fool’s post. Would be a good fun game though if it did come true.]
