Does anybody else feel old after realizing that the classic quarter-sucker, Frogger, is over 30 years old at this point? Yes, our beloved good time is as old as The Evil Dead, and to celebrate the passing times, Konami has announced that Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition has been released. Covering all consoles, it allows players to relive some of their favorite memories through a mixture of both new and returning modes.
For this latest iteration, Konami is looking to improve on the multiplayer experience that fans already love. Check out this statement from the company for more information:
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.)
Go ahead and grab the game for 800 MP from XBLA, $9.99 on PSN, 700 Wii Points on Wiiware, or a mere $0.99 on any smartphone, and keep an eye open for our review.
