Series creator Rare and Dlala Studios are bringing back an all time classic. Rare developed the first Battletoads game in 1991 of NES. The title was originally intended to rival the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The original Battletoads featured the beautiful antagonist, The Dark Queen. The mysterious, evil, and immortal villain had captured Pimple and Princess Angelica. Players would then attempt to aid the Battletoads in their heroic adventure to rescue their friends from the clutches of The Dark Queen and her legion of minions.
Battletoads will be released August 20th on Steam, Xbox Game Pass and the Microsoft Store. The trailers cartoonish aesthetic resembles the style prevalent in the 90s. The trailer looks great, and who knows, perhaps a new Battletoads and Double Dragon game is in the stars one day.
