Battletoads reboot passes 1 million players


Whether it is nostalgia or curiosity, it seems that the Battletoads reboot is a success. In a blog post, Rare confirms that its latest entry in the classic series has had over a million unique players since launch.

“Since their brand new adventure released with Xbox Game Pass and on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Steam on August 20, the development team at Dlala Studios and Rare have been keeping a close eye on responses to the game,” Rare’s Paul Collins writes.

“It’s been wonderful to see the positive reception from so many players and journalists, celebrating how the game stays true to form in its multi-genre, couch co-op nature, all wrapped up in that Saturday morning cartoon styling,” Collins adds.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the game is available on two different platforms: PC and Xbox One. Plus it is free with Xbox Game Pass. So it’s hard to pass up a game like this when it’s free to download, especially if you’re a fan of the original.


New to the service? Try Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1. Need to renew? Get three months for $30 (normally $45). Price subject to change.

Still, we congratulate the development team at Rare for passing this milestone. Hopefully it means that we’ll see more Battletoads in the future.
