Frogger goes Hyper

Frogger goes Hyper

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH today announced the return of its veteran Frogger character, with Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition hopping on to PlayStation®Network for PlayStation®3, Xbox LIVE® Arcade for Xbox 360® and WiiWare™ for Wii™ in the Spring, 2012.

The classic coin-op’s mix of skill and timing returns in its most challenging form yet, as Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition updates the core mechanics, but adds a wealth of new content and ideas.  With the game currently celebrating 30 years of car-dodging, log-jumping, and road-traversing, players can jump into the action with classic and brand-new game modes including Tile Capture, Battle Royale, Freak Out and more that expand the challenge of Frogger's style of run-and-dodge gameplay.

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition also allows users to customise their game experience through a variety of different skins, from the modern neon style of Hyper Arcade to the 8-bit sprites from the original Frogger, the classic Castlevania titles, and even Contra. Competitive types can also compete against friends or the CPU in up to four-player matches to find out who is top frog!

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition will be released via PlayStation®Network, Xbox LIVE® Arcade and WiiWare™ in Spring 2012.
