In Konami's pre-E3 presentation this evening, John S. Coligan, director of digital publishing, details an upcoming trio of Konami social games coming to Facebook and mobile platform. Their new San Francisco based studio, strategically located near mobile partners such as Zynga and Apple, was formed specifically to target this social demographic, bringing back the classic Frogger series with Frogger Pinball, as well as newcomers Twilight Carnival and Puzzle Chasers

No other details were given, but Konami president Tomoyuki Tsuboi did say that the studio was formed specifically to tackle social gaming content, so expect more of the same in the future.
