On November 5th Microsoft filed for the registration of the trademark “Battletoads,” giving hope for the revival of Rare’s classic IP.
Probably its xbl a game.
I agree, but keep in mind digital doesn't' mean what it use to. Hope it's a spiritual successor to the arcade game
Microsoft's so desperate they've released the shackles from rare 😁 finally..
hopefully they stay true to their words and RARE is forever freed from Kinect. to those who disagreed, c'mon...it has to be said!...as a joke, of course! I love Battletoads too and still can't forget how nightmarish was to play through it. I would love to see them revive it and bring it back and shove the difficulty on gamers faces in a new way, not just as arcade re-release! but any lesser will just make it NOT Battletoads and I don't think RARE can stand a backlash for ruining yet another franchise.
lord i hope not. for gaming's sake..
Either it plays like the classics or I'm not interested.
YES! Been waiting tooo long for this.
Knowing Microsoft and Rare, I won't get my hope too high.
Considering Rares is yet to make an actual game, game and not a Kinect game its yet be seen how they do. Something tells me they're gonna do just fine.
Banjo kazooie on 360 sucks
Perfect Dark Zero and the Viva Piñatas weren't game games? Edit: and Banjo? (thanks Easy) Edit edit: And Kameo??? I actually really liked that one.
Kameo was a great game, wouldn't mind seeing another one of those. Viva piñata was also good, crazy they haven't made another one of those would have preferred a kinnect version of that then the uninspired kinnect sports.
Battletoads was amazing. The only thing I worry about it is how well it will go to 3D. Mario went to 3D with the N64 and it was one of the best marios to date. Few games that make that jump have such success. I worry but I have hope that Battletoads will be a fun game. Maybe they should do cell-shading because if they worry too much about graphics I think it will ruin the atmosphere of the game. It was never about the graphics but rather the fun gameplay. That's my 2 cents.
Who says it has to be 3D? They said theyre trying to make more couch co-op games, if this was a super stylized 2d beat em up it'd be perfect.
@Gamer Tell me what you think of my thoughts. 1.)First and foremost the game needs to be side scroller hands down. If its not side scroller this games a wipe right out of the gate no excuses. 2.)Bring back Co-op, 3 player Co-op. Local and online MM. 3.)Introduce teamwork based kills. Double team type of mechanics. 4.) Introduce a new Toad. Maybe a female Toad? A Toad named Scar? I wouldn't mind a 4 brand new Toad. 5.) Deeper combat. I would like to see new maim kills maybe 100's of different executions maybe a combo system. Distinctive combos, maim kills finishers for each Toad(Ryse Son Of Rome a Run for its money jk, jk). But I SWEAR if the Toads play the same and use the same combos... 6.) The original score. Oh yes bring back that epic music score. Maybe a master mix of the original score or something entirely new but when I hear it I need to immediately think BattleToads. The score is very important for that distinctive sound that Battle Toads is known for.
Mario was not beatemup, so your concerns are quite sound
Yes sir i was thinking same thing. They need to do some SSF type graphics that would look crazy.
I hope Battletoads makes a return in a huge way for XBL. And I want it to be just as hard if not harder than original games. I seriously want the motor bike level to return. That part has to be the most cuss induced, hate filled moment in gaming history! Who ever made that level hated video games and hated kids even more, god bless that person. But seriously, would love to see a true side scrolling, beat 'em up action game with either 3-D graphics or cell shaded to give it a full blown cartoon look, 4 player co-op, maybe even unlockable Double Dragon characters and a set number of lives so when you use them up, you get a true GAME OVER. We need to have a return to the old school arcade classics of yesteryear.
Welcome back Battletoads
probably it cant get much clearer then that either lift london or rare will be developing it looks like phil spencer recently visited both those studios
This is the New Rare game that Phil got to see a few days ago.
My reason for buying an xbone! Hope it's true!
Was there ever a Battletoad on N64? A 3D version?
Would prefer a new Conker, but whatever innovation this can bring, I am interested to see..
Whoop hoooo another game from 1992 ! What's next Rise of the Robots ?
If this is true, please don't screw this up haha Microsoft haha
This is awesome to hear if there will be a new battletoads or an HD arcade update or both....I think a new Conker is inbound already and will be announced soon. I think MS finally realized they have franchises gamers want back and decided to give them to them. Now if they bring back Crimson Skies, Mech Assault, Brute Force....etc.....the sales would skyrocket....
I truly hope this is an interim arcade release and not the next new rare game. I did hear that their next game is something new though.
ahh, reminds me of my 4chan days. prank calling gamestop
I been waiting for a new Battletoads for years. They need to make it happen. I would love to see a trailer and gameplay at E3.
This was the game I was hoping to see at the last E3. I really hope that it's a new Battletoads game and not a HD remake. If anything have a new Battletoads game with a chance to unlock the other versions hidden inside. This is one IP that seriously needs to come back in a huge way.
If they do manage to make a good Battle Toads sequel or reboot, i will buy xb1 as soon as the console redesign comes along.. I always loved that game.. Especially the arcade version where there was blood n bones to add to the craziness
I said that if they release a new Battle Toads for Xbox One I would get one. So... if this turns out to be true, I'll purchase my first Xbox product.
