Press Release: El Segundo, Calif. - October 28, 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.
