More and more games are seeing television and movie adaptations these days, but the latest announcement is completely off the wall. Konami’s Frogger franchise, which has been around for a few decades, is now being turned into a competition series.

The new 13 episode series will air on Peacock, the streaming service from NBCUniversal. Hollywood Reporter states that “contestants will play the role of the frog from the Konami video game and attempt to cross a series of obstacles that includes traffic, snapping alligators and hungry hippos.” The site further adds that the courses (“crossings”) will test players’ strength, strategy and problem-solving abilities with the winner taking home a cash prize.


Much was made over Roger Craig Smith recently announcing his departure as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog. However, while there’s been lots of speculation pointing towards SEGA making the move, it turns out that it was his own decision.

That news was shared as part of an interview with Voices from Krypton. Smith feels as though he’s given his all to Sonic, and that now was the right time to move on and explore new roles.

Smith said during the podcast:

A couple of wallpapers for Bravely Default II were added to My Nintendo at the very end of 2020. With the game’s release approaching next week, a new alternate design has been made available.

You can grab the latest Bravely Default II wallpaper from My Nintendo here. It’ll set you back 50 Platinum Points.

Bravely Default II launches for Switch on February 26.

Their partnership goes back to 2005 with Super Mario Strikers, and has worked exclusively on Nintendo projects since Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon.

That relationship is about to take another step. Last month, Nintendo announced that it is acquiring Next Level Games. President Shuntaro Furukawa commented on the move in an interview with Nikkei, and also discussed acquisitions in general.
