There’s a new Battletoads game on the way

New, 5 comments

Coming next year, much like everything else at E3

A new Battletoads game is real and happening, as evidenced today with a brief trailer onstage at Microsoft’s E3 conference. The game will include three-player couch co-op, hand-drawn graphics, it’s coming in 2019, and that’s... all we know.

Rare created the original Battletoads in 1991, but the series has remained untouched for nearly two decades. Microsoft acquired Rare and several of its properties in 2003, however, which gave fans new hope that it might one day return. For now, we’ll just have to satisfy ourselves with this short, snarky trailer.
