REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - November 7, 2006 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced that My Frogger Toy Trials for the Nintendo DS has shipped to retail stores throughout North America. For the first time in the history of the franchise, Frogger will be paired with a new partner named the Hero, as the two playable characters try to win a toy pet competition that will grant them one wish which will make all their dreams come true. My Frogger Toy Trials brings the classic "Hop 'N Dodge" gameplay into the new millennium with innovative mini-games that fully utilize the Nintendo DS touch-screen and microphone. Control the Hero in the game's adventure map and use Frogger to solve puzzles and take part in the mini-games, as players hop higher and dodge faster than ever before.

In My Frogger Toy Trials, a company named Tobi Inc. has developed a way to transform a child's drawing of his or her ideal pet into a real toy pet with a will of its own. The newly created pets are then entered into a competition of mini-games to crown the best pet ever. Deciding to take part in this exciting contest, Frogger and the Hero must rush to submit their idea before time runs out!
Originally launched in 1981, Frogger is one of the most universally adored characters in video game history. The objective of the original Frogger game was to scoot a friendly frog across a busy five-lane highway and over a perilous river to peaceful lily pads. The simple, yet addictive "Hop 'N Dodge" gameplay made Frogger accessible to players of all skill levels, allowing it to quickly develop an immense fan base and become an instant success. With over 20 million games sold worldwide, Frogger continues to capture the hearts of gamers everywhere.
