Nvidia working with Rovio on a more 3D Angry Birds?

Rovio, maker of the famous and wildly popular Angry Birds, has got a few new projects up their sleeves, according to Pocket Gamer. A source there is reporting that Rovio has four games in development, some of which might be in unison with Nvidia.

Speaking at the Mobile Game Forum 2012, Neil Trevett, Nvidia’s mobile content vice president, said a few things about a possible move into 3D mobile gaming, and if it’ll have any affect on Angry Birds. Here’s what he had to say:

“We’ve been speaking to Rovio, and they… ” started Trevett, before stopping himself revealing too much.

“Let’s just say Angry Birds can do a lot more,” said Trevett, who pointed out that the game currently uses a 2D physics engine, and that there’s no reason it couldn’t use a 3D physics engine. Using a 3D engine would be much more accurate, and could provide more accessible gameplay.

“There’s lots of things Rovio could do in terms of particle effects or volcanoes exploding in the background,” Neil added. No word from Rovio on when this revamped Angry Birds will be released, but we’ll let you know if anything changes.

So, what do you think Rovio and Nvidia are planning? We’d love to hear from you. Be sure to leave a comment below!
