In what came as a shock to us all, a new Battletoads title was announced during the Xbox Press Conference.
The new Battletoads title will be launching in 2019, for Xbox One, and hopefully also landing on PC.
The Battletoads teaser showed no gameplay, but did announce that the title will feature three-player couch co-op and 2.5D 4K graphics. The artwork for the game is stated to be completely hand drawn, according to the trailer.
A new Battletoads title has been speculated for years, with Microsoft registering for a renewal of the Battletoads trademark back in 2014, sparking speculation that a new title could be in the works. 4 years later, we’ve had that announcement. It’s been well over two decades since we last saw a Battletoads title, and we’re excited to see what the new title has to offer upon its release next year.
