If you are exceptionally good at walking you only have the chance. Konami turns Frogger, a classic arcade game where you drive a frog along a busy road, into a TV game show. It’s exactly what you think: a race on an obstacle course where racers must “dodge treacherous traffic, hop on gates and hop over hungry hippos”.
As per Deadline, the series will air on NBC’s Peacock, which is currently only available in the US. Includes 13 obstacle courses that participants must navigate and have an open invitation to residents of the U.S. The show was filmed at a location in Australia, but anyone holding an American passport qualifies for the wildest frog fantasies. The winner will receive a “huge” cash prize – this does not mean that you will need money once the world knows you as the “lived frog”.
The show is similar to Floor is Lava, a Netflix series in which contestants attempt to cross local obstacle paths without falling into the “lava” that has replaced the floor. The show was a minor success, perhaps in part because it came in the midst of a pandemic, most of us were trapped and desperately in need of something. anything To occupy our time. Konami and NBC are likely hoping Frogger will play a similar role.
