Dlala Studios will be re-creating the cult-classic.
New Ip confirmed from Rare. So glad to see Battletoads make a comeback.
I'm not that excited. I was expecting a real come back in a modern setting, something like Batman. Instead, it's just another of the countless side scrollers.
Hand drawn 4k graphics....thing is going to look beautiful. I hope it's a brutal as the first game. MS should try and get a deal and put the Lee brothers in as extra characters.
Rare can’t be bothered to revive their own classic IPs. They must still feel jilted after Rare Replay didn’t prove to be a huge seller
Or... they are so wrapped up in adding more content to Sea of Thieves that they have full confidence in the team that is doing the work on Battletoads.
Rare Replay sold better than expected ( https://www.gamespot.com/ar... I am very confident it had a high digital attachment due to its low price.
Rare isn't even the same company anymore all the talent they once had, has been gone for years.
Same for Bungie, same for Naughty Dog. Most game companies are not made up of the same people they were 10 years ago. There is plenty of talent at Rare.
Like most studios of that age, talent changes hands quite often
Sea of Thieves would like to have a word with you.
Rare Replay sold a lot more than anticipated
N4G: Ms needs new IP! Rare: we are making new IP while letting other studio handle our classic IPs. N4G: MS doesn’t even care about their old IPs!!! Smh...N4G. Edit: And FYI, Rare Replays sold better than expected. It even topped UK sale chart. https://www.dualshockers.co...
I don't know how to feell about this. I kinda want them to revive Blinx,Conker or Banjo. But im also not against them making a new IP.
Theres an idea, if they cant make decent new experiences at least they might be able to revive older 1s. How much do you want to bet they are working on sot2. Or their comment could be taken out of context and what they mean is expansions on sot.
Blinx was developed by Artoon.
It's for the best. Killer Instinct was the only Rare IP that was successfully brought back and it wasn't Rare who did it, but a 3rd party developer, Battle Toads are probably in better hands. It's evident with the Banjo Kazooie Nuts N Bolts and Perfect Dark Zero games, along with their use of Conker, the Rare team just doesn't understand the older IP's and can't seem to comprehend what fans liked about them, I'd rather see them take a shot with new IP's than further tarnish their old ones.
I wish a new, great company was put on a Banjo Kazooie 3 project. Would love to see Banjo 3...especially from a company that knows what they are doing in that 3D Platformer field
With Rare making a new IP I hope it will take what Rare learned in making Nuts & Bolts, but be a new game instead. I know that Banjo Kazooie game didn't get much love, but I feel like had it been a new IP people would have liked it more, so making a new game could be fun.
Rare doesn't even have the talent to make new games, let alone revive old ones.
What is Sea of Thieves? Is that a new cartoon show?
Woah, love battle toads so much!
There you go. They are making new IP. Great to hear.
Good after Sea of Thieves I want the current Rare to stay far away from Battletoads.
Sea of Thieves was mediocre and extremely shallow. Most people that played the game (even xbox diehards) lost interest after a few playtimes. People have moved on. Its so refreshing hearing Rand al Thor and other popular youtube pro xbox podcasts confess how terrible the game is. Let me guess, they are working on SOT2 orr their comment is taken out of context and what they mean is dlc for sot... Other pirate games coming out i hope will show Rare how a real pirate game is supposed to be made. #Sea of ZZZ's
"Sea of Thieves was mediocre and extremely shallow." Good thing SoT is coming out with plentiful, interesting, and free DLC because what SoT "was" is not what it will be in the future. You make it seem like people didn't like the core game as it released, when it blew up both in terms of the popularity of the beta and how it was being watched by others on various streaming services. Reviews for SoT obviously don't matter because it's doing well in spite of the negativity from releasing too early. Ironically, if it had released in September all three DLC.s would have been done,the reviews would have been better because of the additional content, and there would have been a Holiday release to take CD3's place.
I miss RARE CGI rendered graphics. The new Battletoads would've been the perfect game to use CGI instead of using hand-drawn 2-d graphics for the new Battletoads game.
average playtime is 22 hours? damn that's a lot for a game that has "nothing to do".
I want to see how this plays out. Concept art, a stage layout, character model, SOMETHING! They literally just said its coming out with some cheap animation. I love Battletoads & will be pissed if they screw it up
Good keep Rare away from Battletoads
