NBCUniversal has released the first trailer for its upcoming game show version of Frogger.
The classic arcade game is being turned into a TV show and will be exclusive on NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service in the US.
The Frogger show will be similar to other physical contest shows like Wipeout and American Ninja Warrior.
Players have to make their way across an obsctacle course based on the hazards in Konami‘s 1981 arcade game.
Contestants will take part in a variety of obstacle courses, known in the show as ‘crossings’, including Frog City, Candy Frog Land, Frogs in Space, Frog Skull Island, Ribbit River and Toad Temple.
“These physically demanding challenges will see contestants dodge treacherous traffic, leap over snapping gators and hop over hungry hippos to conquer the course”, NBCUniversal says.
The winner will be deemed “America’s finest Frogger” and collect a cash prize of $100,000.
The original Frogger arcade game was released in 1981 and had players taking control of a frog as he hopped across a busy road and a crocodile-infested river to try and reach the five empty homes at the top of the screen.
The game was a huge success in arcades, and has since been ported to countless systems, spawning over 25 sequels and spin-offs.
Frogger will be hosted by Happy Endings star Damon Wayans Jr and Good Morning Football presenter Kyle Brandt.
The first episode of Frogger will be added to Peacock on September 9, with new episodes coming every Thursday.
