Konami announced Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition is now available for the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and smartphone platforms. The game will also be available for Nintendo’s WiiWare service on Wii on July 12.
It’s Frogger the way fans remember – and then some – as the famed amphibian returns in time for its 30th anniversary celebrations with updates that are sure to delight fans old and new. Gamers can leap into the action with classic and brand-new game modes like Tile Capture, Battle Royale, Freak Out and more that expand the challenge of Frogger’s style of run-and-dodge gameplay. Players can also customize their game experience through a variety of unlockable skins with KONAMI classics like Castlevania, CONTRA and even the 8-bit sprites from original arcade Frogger. For those looking to battle out, Frogger style, fans can compete in up to four player matches with friends or against the CPU* (Smartphone versions are single player experiences).
First introduced in 1981, Frogger is widely considered a classic and was noted for both its novel gameplay and theme.
Developed by Zombie Studios, Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition is available now for download on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Points, PlayStation Network for $9.99 and smartphone devices for $.99. The game will also be available July 12 on Nintendo WiiWare for 700 Wii Points.
