"Flip the Frog", or "弾く 定冠詞 が" in Japan, is a 3D platformer made by the new game development studio known as Glacier™, with it being developed for the Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, and the Xbox One. Like Yooka-Laylee, Flip the Frog is supposed to be a revival of 3D platformers. Unlike Yooka-Laylee, Flip the Frog is supposed to mix aspects from Banjo-Kazooie, Rayman 4, and Super Mario Odyssey together to create a tribute to 3D platformers of the late 90's. The game was released on November 21st, 2017 in all regions around the world.


While Flip the Frog does have collect-a-thon elements, the main source of inspiration for the gameplay are the tight controls of Super Mario Odyssey and the large open world Banjo-Kazooie and Conker's Bad Fur Day. When fused together, these two aspects make a large world for Flip, Cobby, and Francine to explore in to their heart's content. The world has specific sections dedicated to each of the three playable characters.





  • Due to it's cancellation, the team of the scrapped Rayman 4 came over in 2014 to help with the development of Flip the Frog. In addition, this is where a large part of the story came from, including the concept of the main hero being inside of a video game.
  • The game was originally planned for a release on both the V² and the Wii U, but due to the declining sales of the Wii U and a falling out between the producer of Flip the Frog and the creator of the V² having a falling out. The game was delayed to a possible 2018 release before Nintendo asked if they'd like to make the game for the Switch.
  • A timed-exclusivity deal was made with Nintendo where the game would be on the Switch for five months before eventually making it to the Playstation 4 and the Xbox One.
