RALEIGH, NC — July 26, 2022 — Top Hat Studios, in conjunction with distribution partner, Limited Run Games, today revealed the different physical editions that the charming, highly anticipated platforming adventure Frogun will be available in. Frogun is a nostalgic 3D platformer where players take on the role of Renata, a little girl with an unusual sidekick, a frog that’s a gun - the Frogun - but also her best friend. In addition, for those preferring to stick to a digital experience, the game is available for pre-order digitally now on the Nintendo eShop and Xbox Store.

Published by Top Hat Studios and distributed by Limited Run Games, in physical form Frogun will be available on Nintendo Switch, Playstation®4, and Playstation®5 in two different editions for each platform. The Standard Edition consists of the game itself with digital extras (artbook, manual, and soundtrack) on disc or cart, and for fans of retro collectibles, a Collector’s Edition packed full of goodies will be available.



The Collector’s Edition of Frogun contains a collector’s box featuring exclusive hand painted watercolor art by Ivy Jade Weaver (Toasty: Ashes of Dusk, The Imp's Masquerade), a vibrant sticker collection to decorate with, a physical CD-ROM of Frogun’s Original Soundtrack, a double-sided reversible poster showing off the game’s aesthetic, and of course, the game itself on respective platforms.





Through mystical jungle ruins, dark depths, freezing snow caps, and scorching lava swamps, you’ll hunt for treasure, dodge perilous hazards, and fight dastardly bosses along the way in Frogun. Full of things to do with over 40 levels and collectables - ranging from coins, explorer’s notes, unlockable cosmetics, special emeralds, and medals aplenty in the game – the Collector’s Edition is perfect for those who’re gaming completionists. All physical versions of the game will not require an internet connection or download.

Experience dozens of levels set across many uniquely themed worlds, encounter other mysterious adventurers, and find unlockable secrets, collectibles and in-game achievements, as well as notes left by pirates, raiders, and previous explorers of the ruins. To reward collection maniacs, Frogun’s coins can be traded for unlockable cosmetics and behind-the-scenes peeks. Upon 100% completion of the game, players can unlock an expert time trials mode which provides a set of pro times to beat for each level and should serve as a speed runner’s dream, alongside a bonus dedicated speed-running mode.
