China finally gets its own version of that hit Japanese frog game
But are people really playing anymore?
That premise got millions of players in China hooked on the hit smartphone game earlier this year, even though it was only available in Japanese.
Alibaba’s gaming division says on its official Weibo page that the frog is prepared to explore the “beautiful mountains and rivers of China”.
But some don’t seem too keen on the idea.
Still, there are plenty of Weibo users who say they are excited about the prospects of the frog roaming the Great Wall of China or the West Lake in Hangzhou. And many are still actively sharing the status of their frogs and the “postcards” they received in the current version of the game.
