    The iconic arcade classic Frogger will be getting a modern day rejuvenation with Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition from Konami this spring. Frogger will apparently see an update to his "core mechanics" of car-dodging, log-jumping and road-traversing, along with a fresh coat of paint. Taking a page out of Pac-Man's playbook, a wide range of different sprite choices are available including sprites from 8-bit Contra and Castlevania!

    All new modes include Battle Royale, Freak Out and Tile Capture, which support up to 4 CPU or flesh 'n blood players.

    Celebrate 30 years of Frogger this spring on PSN, WiiWare or XBLA.

    GRAPHICS AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH!

    Seriously though, this looks alright. I could probably have some fun with this, but I'm not sure it will really be worth buying.

    Looks great! I love these retro remakes (similar Pac-Man Championship Edition DX), should be fun! ^_^
