Frogger making a comeback

New Hyper Arcade Edition coming

Video gaming’s favorite frog is set to be released from retro land and return in a new downloadable edition. The new title will be called Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition and is set for release in the spring of 2012, according to Konami.

Konami says that this will be the most challenging re-invention of the game yet. The game will offer a mix of new and old, with updated core mechanics and a variety of new concepts in a number of game modes to test even the best Frogger fans.

While the title has received new updated graphics, players can retro-ize the look of the game back to the 8-bit sprites of yesteryear from the original Frogger. Players can compete against each other, or even the CPU. The game also offers a 4 player mode to see who is king of the pond.

The game will be offered in download form only to start with. It will be making its way to Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360, The PlayStation Network store for the PlayStation 3, and the WiiWare store for the Wii players. A price has yet to be announced, but sources tell us to expect a $15 (or 1,200) Microsoft Points price tag when the game is released. Other than announcing that it will release in the spring, no specific release date has been announced.
