Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition is in development for multiple platforms, a rating from the Australian classification board reveals, but that's not the news here. Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition is being developed by Zombie Studios, the team behind the heavily homicidal, shoot-em-up, bullet-frenzied Blacklight franchise. Original creator Konami is set to publish the new title, and it received the lowest rating of "General" from the Australian ratings board.

Unfortunately the rating immediately dismisses all of our dreams of a first-person, shotgun-wielding Frogger who doesn't try to avoid the cars in the road -- he just exterminates them. Whatever comes of this strange union, it's sure to display a side we haven't seen from someone.
