Battletoads set for August 20 release on Xbox One, PC

For the past 26 years, Battletoads fans have been begging developer Rare, and subsequently Microsoft (who acquired Rare in 2002), for a new Battletoads game. For the past few years, Microsoft has been teasing a Battletoads return by having the characters make cameos in games like Killer Instinct and Shovel Knight, but the teasing ends in August.

Microsoft and Rare have announced Battletoads will be launching on Xbox One and PC on August 20. The game brings back the classic beat-em-up gameplay its known along with some platforming, racing, and puzzle-solving along with three-player couch play.

Battletoads will also come to Xbox Game Pass on the same day. Check out the announcement trailer below:
