Rare has confirmed the release date for the new Battletoads game, and you will not have to wait too long. Battletoads will be available on August 20th on Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, Windows 10, and Steam. The new Battletoads has been in development at Dlala Studios with Rare giving support to the studio. If you plan on playing Battletoads through Game Pass you can preload the game now so it will be ready to play on launch day.
In a post on Xbox News Wire, Rare’s Adam Park wrote:
“The tenacity and split-second reflexes required to beat the original Battletoads has given it a fearsome reputation among fans. Dlala’s new approach focuses on maintaining this mayhem while ensuring you have enough options to play at your own pace. That includes bringing in some buddies for couch co-op, which allows up to three players to drop in and out at will, along with difficulty settings designed to suit everyone from Tadpole to Battletoad. Just like before, you’ll be faced with hugely varied challenges as you play, including new vehicle sections and even some puzzle-solving this time around!”
Battletoads was originally announced in 2018 with a view to it being released in 2019. There was a lot of silence after the announcement until a new trailer arrived in 2019. It was around then the game was delayed into 2020, but at least we now have a release date. Rare has confirmed that between now and the release of Battletoads on August 20th there will be some new information released through gameplay deep dives, and through a look at the development process that Dlala Studio went through to create a Battletoads game 26 years after the original game release. There will also be some giveaways and a reveal of some new Battletoads merchandise nearer to release.
