Battletoads Release Date Announced

Battletoads

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!

A new game in the series that originally began on NES, Battletoads is an animated beat 'em up that's doing everything it can to channel the love and nostalgia around the 1991 release. These options include couch co-op and multiple difficulty settings that will "suit everyone from Tadpole to Battletoad".


Microsoft announced the new Battletoads at E3 2018, revealing the game's cartoonish hand-drawn art style and developer Dlala Studios' involvement.

In our hands-on of the new Battletoads, we said that while it's still tough, it is no longer sadistic, and "It felt like playing as Dante, or pre-fatherhood Kratos, and I mean that in a good way". And yes, the grueling bike racing segments are back, just from a different perspective, as you can see in the launch date trailer above. The game will launch on Xbox Game Pass for console and PC. The remaster of the original game is also now available to play on Game Pass via the Rare Replay collection. Simply search for Battletoads on your Xbox One, or download the Xbox Game Pass mobile app for iOS or Android and pre-install to your console or PC.
