Konami is capitalizing at the Frogger logo for a brand new fact festival collection for Peacock, NBC Common’s streaming provider. The vintage arcade sport might be tailored into the TV display Frogger, described as a “fierce and ridiculously a laugh festival” through which contestants compete in 12 themed impediment classes. And sure, that incorporates dodging “treacherous visitors.”
In line with a information unlock, Frogger contestants can even must “bounce over snapping gators and jump over hungry hippos to overcome the route.” Probably, the ones wild animals might be simulated as a part of a rather secure impediment route within the vein of Wipeout, Maximum Excessive Removal Problem, and American Ninja Warrior — partially as a result of Peacock pitches its new sport display as “a wild, whimsical Frogger international.”
Frogger is being produced by means of Eureka Productions. The manufacturing corporate’s different displays come with ABC’s Holey Moley and Netflix’s Courting Round. 13 hourlong episodes of Frogger were ordered.
The unique Frogger used to be evolved by means of Konami and launched in arcades by means of Sega and Gremlin in 1981. The sport duties avid gamers with guiding a circle of relatives of frogs throughout a perilous five-lane freeway and an similarly treacherous river. Frogger has spawned dozens of sequels and spinoffs during the last 5 a long time, maximum not too long ago Frogger in Toy The town for Apple Arcade from developer Q-Video games.
Frogger had a short-lived TV presence within the early 1980s, because of Saturday Supercade, an animated collection that featured Konami’s well-known frog along Donkey Kong, Q*Bert, and Pitfall Harry. In Saturday Supercade, Frogger used to be a reporter at The Swamp Gazette, chasing tales and fending off threats like alligators and visitors.
