Developers of Neko Atsume Release New Game Tabikaeru ("Journey Frog")

The creators of the wildly popular kitty-collecting game have released a "ribbeting" mobile experience about a journeying frog called Tabi Kaeru.

Hit-Point, the developers behind the 2014 smash hit Neko Atsume, are ready to make a splash in the mobile pond yet again. This time focusing on a frog with some serious wanderlust, Tabi Kaeru ("Journey Frog"), like its cat-collecting cousin, is only available in Japanese, and it can be found on both iTunes and the Google Play Store by searching "旅かえる."

In Journey Frog, you prepare your adorable amphibian buddy for exotic adventures by packing him some lunch, loading him up with clovers (which serve as the game's currency), and equipping him with various accessories. While he's off exploring the virtual hinterlands -- for hours on end -- you're free to go about your real-world life until he returns, usually with some goodies he came upon and perhaps even a photo from his travels. The spoils from his daily adventure can then be used to ready him for the next journey ... and so on and so forth.

Make GameSkinny your go-to lilypad for all things Tabi Kaeru, and together we'll watch him grow from aimless tadpole to seasoned amphibian adventurer.
