Konami Cross Media NY has announced that it is expanding the “Frogger” merchandise line beyond the screen with two new licensing deals in partnership with Home Run Games in the U.S. and U.K. and Los Angeles-based Ultra PRO International.
Home Run Games will be bringing their expertise in professional sports marketing to gaming by producing a series of “Frogger” playing card decks. “Frogger” playing cards will debut in time for the holiday season, including a limited-edition series packaged to look like the “Frogger” arcade game.
To celebrate “Frogger’s” 40th anniversary, Ultra PRO will create a “Frogger” board game inspired by the video game. The new “Frogger” board game, released under the Ultra PRO Entertainment tabletop game division, will leap into retail during the second quarter of 2021.
“We are pleased to expand the “Frogger” merchandise lineup with these two companies who understand the importance of competitive play – be it sports or video games – to our fan base,” says Jennifer Coleman, vice president, licensing and marketing, Konami Cross Media NY. “We look forward to introducing these items that we hope will keep families entertained during these stressful times with one of their favorite iconic gaming characters.”
