Frogger: Ancient Shadow is a platform video game developed by Hudson Soft and released by Konami as a sequel to Frogger's Adventures: The Rescue.

Frogger: Ancient Shadow was originally released in 2005 on consoles only. However, it was later released on Windows around August 2006 exclusively via a USB game controller called the Konami Live! Online Game Controller which could download the game from Konami's servers after plugging in and installing the USB game controller's drivers as well as the Konami Live! game launcher.

As of July 2012, the servers have been discontinued. The game, as well as the USB game controller's drivers can no longer be downloaded, essentially disabling usage of the entire product unless the files were already installed. The Windows version of Frogger: Ancient Shadow is now considered to be partially found media, as most of the game's assets have recently been found and the game has been restored to a playable state by importing assets from other released versions of the game.[1]
