El Segundo, Calif. - Nov. 12, 2009 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced the availability of Frogger Returns on Nintendo WiiWare™. The latest iteration of the classic arcade game now comes in a downloadable format and challenges players to safely deliver Frogger to his destination in a new 3D world.
In Frogger Returns, players must employ familiar dodge-and-run techniques in order to help Frogger out of the busy city and back into the marshland. Gamers must also avoid the hectic streets, sewers and subways that obstruct Frogger's path home. By utilizing new power-ups including time freeze, invincibility and time reverse, players can manipulate the various environments to make it home alive.
Complete with enhanced graphics, a new camera angle and multiple levels, Frogger Returns features local multiplayer capabilities and 12 times the content of the original game. Players can face off and put their skills to the test in the highly competitive timed challenges, capture-the-pad races and can even show off their best scores to friends with leaderboards.
Frogger Returns is available now for download on Nintendo WiiWare™ for 500 points, and will be available later this month on the PlayStation®Network for $4.99. For screenshots, a trailer and more information, please visit: www.konami.com/downloads.
