It’s only been almost three decades, but Battletoads is finally back!
This is the first new adventure for Zitz, Rash, and Pimple since Battletoads Arcade way back in 1994. So needless to say, it’s been a long time coming. The reboot is developed out of Dlala Studios with the support of Rare.
But you won’t have to wait much longer. The Battletoads reboot is coming to PC and Xbox One on August 20. It is also available as a free download for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
Here’s more via Xbox Wire:
If you’re unfamiliar with the genre-busting gameplay of the Battletoads series, here are the essentials: Zitz, Rash and Pimple are three brawling bruisers from outer space who can morph parts of their bodies to dish out extra destruction. The targets of said destruction, are often the Dark Queen and her abominable allies, in action that takes place across a variety of beat ‘em up, platforming, and racing stages.
The tenacity and split-second reflexes required to beat the original Battletoads has given it a fearsome reputation among fans. 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 designed to suit everyone from Tadpole to Battletoad. Just like before, you’ll be faced with hugely varied challenges as you play, including new vehicle sections and even some puzzle-solving this time around!
