Konami Brings Classic Arcade Franchise to Facebook Users for First Time

El Segundo, Calif. – March 10, 2010 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced the launch of an updated version of the smash arcade hit Frogger with Facebook Connect. Frogger will give Facebook users the opportunity to track game scores, play against others, and follow friends and family on the Frogger Leader Board.

The launch of Facebook Connect for Frogger brings players the latest version of the 28-year-old successful series that challenges players to safely guide Frogger across the highway, while avoiding oncoming traffic and alligator filled streams.

“We recognize that staying connected and sharing is a big part of the Frogger community,” said Joe Morris, Konami’s Vice President of Mobile Content and Social Networking. “Our Frogger fans have shared their ideas, and we are committed to implementing their suggestions into the latest rendition of one of the most popular video game franchises.”

Frogger will be Konami’s first title integrated with Facebook Connect, providing players with an all-new element of social gaming with their Facebook friends. For more information please visit https://apps.facebook.com/konamifrogger/.
