The original Battletoads game was released way back in 1991. It was developed by Rare, who would go on to make some of the most memorable and beloved video games of all time, including Donkey Kong Country, Banjo-Kazooie, and GoldenEye 007. That’s one hell of a resume.
Well, it’s almost three decades later, and it looks like the ‘Toads are back in town with a brand new game.
Simply titled Battletoads, this game sees the return of Rash, Zitz, and Pimple, along with three-player co-op and the infamous hoverbikes. According to the trailer, this will be “one epic multi-genre adventure,” which we assume means it will be more than just a straight-up side-scrolling beat-’em-up (though, to be honest, a straight-up side-scrolling beat-’em-up doesn’t sound so bad either).
Battletoads will be available on PC and Xbox One on August 20. You can watch the trailer below.
