New Battletoads Game Arrives for Xbox One, Windows PCs on August 20

Battletoads

It's been a long time coming, but you'll only have to wait a few more weeks to play the first Battletoads game since the mid-'90s.

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.


Dlala Studios and Rare's Battletoads Xbox One and PC game has a release date. For those unaware, the original Battletoads game is (in) famous for its difficulty. It'll also feature 3 player drop in and out couch co-op, with varying gameplay sequences that will appeal to all kinds of players. According to a post today on Xbox Wire, "Dlala's new approach focuses on maintaining this mayhem while ensuring you have enough options to play at your own pace". That includes bringing in some buddies for couch co-op, which allows up to three players to drop in and out at will, along with difficulty settings created to suit everyone from Tadpole to Battletoad. It even shows what the Turbo Tunnel-like segments will be like and how they use a new viewpoint when you're seeing the action from behind. The new art style didn't really look as edgy as the Battletoads themselves, and overall tone of the game is supposed to be, but there were still some fans that were willing to give the game a chance.
