At the Xbox E3 2019 Briefing, gamers were rocked by the return of Battletoads when Rash, Zitz and Pimple debuted an all-new adventure launching on Xbox One and available with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for console! Recently, the aggressive amphibians have been content to share the spotlight in titles like Rare Replay, Killer Instinct and Shovel Knight, not to mention making their debut as must-have collectibles in Loot Crates and beyond. Now their time to shine toad slime has come, taking centre stage once more with Battletoads.
Like the old-school beat-em-up style of the original games, this new Battletoads is an action-packed, side-scrolling brawler that sees the ‘Toads take on hordes of larger-than-life enemies in a frenzied, frog-fuelled fight across wild and weird landscapes. A unique fusion of gameplay styles means you’ll never know what’s around the corner – players need to expect the unexpected!
Teamwork makes the dream work this time around, as Battletoads is a game that’s fun played solo but makes for an unforgettable three player couch co-op experience thanks to special team-up moves and gameplay elements that emphasise cooperation – no Toad left behind! Anyone can grab the controller and play, but fully mastering each level will take some serious skills – either way, you’ll look and feel awesome, not to mention have a hilarious time, while playing.
Set to make a splash at launch, Battletoads is developed for the Xbox One family of devices as a collaboration between Rare and Dlala Studios. Battletoads is presented with a unique hand-drawn art style, a rockin’ soundtrack and an epic new story penned by award-winning writers. Reinventing ‘retro’ with hard-hitting morph attacks, death-defying vehicle chases, head-scratching puzzles and towering boss encounters, this feast of choreographed chaos will bring fans old and new to the same conclusion: the Battletoads are back in action!
