Frogger lives again on WiiWare, goes Hyper
Frogger is back again and getting a run on the digital platforms.
It’s not often we get to say this, so listen carefully. A game developer, Konami, has announced a new game for WiiWare. It’s to be released in a few months. Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition will be another iteration of the classic game remixed with new gameplay ideas and even multiplayer. It’s also heading to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. Just in case you happen to own a console that connects to either one of those online systems.
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!
