It's finally here! Rare has confirmed that Battletoads will release for Xbox One and Xbox Game Pass on August 20th, as well as Windows 10 and Steam. You can watch the new trailer above.

More than two decades since the last game, the new Battletoads will focus on the series' classic beat 'em up gameplay, but will also introduce new vehicle sections and even some puzzle-solving. Furthermore, the game will support couch co-op for up to three players, with the ability to drop in and out at will.

Battletoads is available to pre-install right now with Xbox Game Pass, and Rare says it will be sharing more gameplay deep dives, first glimpses of new collectible merchandise and exclusive giveaways in the lead up to release.

It’s been quite a while – 26 years, in fact – but at long last, the Battletoads are ready to morph, leap and smash their way back into the limelight for an all-new adventure helmed by Dlala Studios and supported by series creator Rare, a partnership first teased during E3 2018’s Xbox showcase.
