A revival of the classic Battletoads franchise had been rumored for years before the game’s official announcement at E3 2018. It was originally scheduled to release in 2019, but got delayed to uncertain point in the future. Except that point isn’t uncertain anymore, because today Xbox revealed the new release date: August 20.
The latest trailer emphasizes Battletoads’ mash-up of various genres, including elements of brawlers, platformers, and top-down shooters. The game has three-player couch co-op, and will be releasing on Xbox One and PC, and it will also be available on Game Pass on both platforms.
We weren’t completely sold when we played the game last year, but with the extra development time, hopefully developer Dlala Studios has made the experience more enjoyable.
