Frogger gets the Hyper Arcade Edition treatment for PSN, XBLA, Wii



Finally, after countless throwaway remakes of Frogger, we finally get one that counts. Obviously inspired by Pac-Man Championship Edition, Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition looks to up the ante with score based, competitive Frogger action. As a bonus, the game will feature all sorts of 8-bit style skins from other Konami titles such as Castlevania and Contra.

Check out the screens below.

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition is coming to PSN, XBLA and Wii Ware this Spring.

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!
