The Art of Battletoads contains 184 pages of pure art, sketches, and illustrated scenes from the game!
Few games have become known for their incredible art. I’m thinking of Borderlands, The Binding of Isaac, Ori and the Blind Forest, and many more. However, one title that managed to not only impress with its artwork but also made the leap from video games to TV was Battletoads.
Therefore, Rare brings us an art book to celebrate the success of this great franchise. It is a total of 184 pages where we can see the different creative processes of the legendary characters: Rash, Zitz, and Pimple.
Great for fans and collectors
In case you are a recent gamer, or you don’t have much experience in beat ’em up games, I will explain to you what Battletoads is. Battletoads, in a few words, is one of those masterpieces of video games that very little attention is given to these days.
At the time of its release, it was the direct competition of the well-known Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Even so, its characters, Rash, Zitz, and Pimple, have a unique essence that has managed to establish itself in the general culture of the youth of the 1980s and ’90s. All of this is thanks to the very successful illustrations, which allowed each of the characters, scenarios, fights, and more to have a unique personality.
Although the game released in 2020 was not as well received as expected, it is still one of the best franchises in video games. That’s why the Rare team, as a tribute to all that the franchise has achieved, has released an art book called The Art of Battletoads. It’s a book where we can see art, sketches, and illustrated scenes from the original game, and the Battletoads game from 2020.
On Amazon, you can get the hardcover version or the digital version for Kindle. If you are a Battletoads fan or have a home collection of art books, this is one of those that you will want in your collection. You can find The Art of Battletoads on Amazon.
