It’s been 26 years since the last major Battletoads title but the crew is back and better than ever. Developed by Dlala Studios and Rare, the new Battletoads releases today for Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam and Xbox Game Pass. To help celebrate, Xbox’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb – or at least, the animated version of him – interviewed Rash, Zitz and Pimple in the new launch trailer.
The trailer also showcases some of the content that fans can expect. Along with the usual beat ’em up style gameplay, there minigames and other hooks. Turbo Bike racing, as terrifying as it was in the original games, also makes a return (though impressions indicate that it’s not as difficult here).
Along with drop-in, drop-out co-op, Battletoads also features customizable difficulty settings. The art-style is also very much in-line with the launch trailer, presenting a hand-drawn cartoon aesthetic compared to previous games. Stay tuned for more details on Battletoads as it goes live today.
