Remember Battletoads? The badass frogs with extreme attitude that was all the rage back then? They’re back! Microsoft has announced that a new Battletoads game is coming this August 20 and is being developed by Dlala Studios in conjunction with Rare!
Check out the info and trailer below.
- The Battletoads return this August, bringing the fight to Xbox One, Windows 10, Xbox Game Pass, and Steam
- Zitz, Rash and Pimple’s first new adventure in decades, developed by Dlala Studios and supported by Rare
- Get ready for a genre-busting comeback featuring combat, vehicles, puzzles and more!
Xbox Game Pass members can also pre-install the game on Console or PC starting today, so you’re ready to play on day one: search for Battletoads on your Xbox or the Xbox App for PC (beta), or download the Xbox Game Pass mobile app for Apple or Android and pre-install to your console or PC. Until you get a chance to play, be sure to check out our latest trailer for a glimpse of all the action that awaits!
As you can see, the ‘Toads are back in a new fantastic hand-animated style. For those who prefer their beat-’em-ups with a friend, the game does support couch co-op and will allow up to three players to drop in and out at will.
I have to admit, Rare’s new take on Battletoads look fun, and hopefully it brings the franchise’s renowned difficulty with it, though not too much.
