Amiga platformer Superfrogis making a comeback. Rather than get a whole new game that couldn't possibly live up to fans' expectations, Team17 will put its energy into Superfrog HD, which features brand new visuals. No screenshots yet, but the art above shows where the studio is at.
"We're extremely excited about bringing Superfrog HD to PS3 and PS Vita; it's the most requested game that our fans are always requesting to see make a return," said managing director Debbie Bestwick. "Now, with the 20th anniversary of the original Superfrog and the recent re-release of our classic survival-horror Alien Breed, we feel the timing has never been better."
Having no fond memories of the original Amiga version or knowledge of how well it has aged, I'm eager to see how Superfrog HD turns out. A decades-old game getting revamped graphics like this doesn't happen all that frequently.
