Frogger, the little amphibian who has been trying to cross roads with varying success since the early 80's, is coming back for another go this fall.
Frogger Returns, slated for a fall release, is being developed by Konami for PlayStation Network and WiiWare. New for this time around are time travel, invincibility and time freeze power-ups and a new camera angle, and Konami promises lovely 3D graphics, local multiplayer and a game 12 times the size of the original. That's a lot of highway.
We'll have more on this as it comes, and be sure to check out our full review when the game drops.
If our little friend only learned how to use crosswalks he wouldn't wind up in so many traffic pickles. Of course, that would make a really crap game.
El Segundo, Calif. - October 27, 2009 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced Frogger Returns for Nintendo WiiWare™ and PlayStation®Network. Based on the timeless arcade game, the latest iteration of Frogger delivers the addictive dodge-and-run gameplay fans know and love on an all-new platform.
In Frogger Returns, players are thrown back into the hustle and bustle of city life to guide their amphibious friend, Frogger, from the city back to his home marsh. Frogger Returns stays true to the classic arcade gameplay style, but is enhanced with improved graphics, a new camera angle, and new levels. Streets, sewers, subways, and numerous other obstacles and enemies are in play - all for the sake of keeping Frogger away from returning home!
But Frogger isn't surrounded by just hurdles; new power-ups including time reverse, invincibility and time freeze also aid Frogger in his travels.
Frogger Returns boasts a game 12 times the size of the original, crisp 3D graphics and local multiplayer capabilities. Players can go head-to-head in timed capture-the-pad races, as well as compete with friends by showing off their best scores. With a 25-year legacy, innovative controller options and extended levels, Frogger Returns provides all players the ultimate casual and core gaming experience.
Frogger Returns will be available for download later this fall on Nintendo WiiWare™ and PlayStation®Network. For more information, please visit www.konami.com/downloads.
