Battletoads is an upcoming beat game developed by Dlala Studios and Rare. This is the relaunch of the “Battlefield Toad” series, and the first new entry in the 1994 “Battlefield Toad” mall in 26 years. The game is scheduled to be released on August 20, 2020 and is available for Xbox One and Windows platforms.
Like the original “Toad”, the game is also a horizontal scrolling beat. Up to three players can play together as Battletoads Rash, Pimple, and Zitz, each with a different game style. The graphic style of the game is hand-drawn, which is more cartoonish than the previous series of games.
The obstacles in this game are reminiscent of the extremely difficult Turbo Tunnel of the original game, but when restarted, its lens replaces the side view of the original game, but behind the bicycle. The restart sequence retains its nostalgic difficulties, and its on-screen game provides encouraging messages for players.
With the assistance and supervision of series creator Rare, Dlala Studios is developing a restart function. Dlala Studios has previously developed another beat game “Overruled”. Before the announcement of the E3 game in 2018, the Battletoads series had been dormant for decades , the last time it appeared in the 2015 retrospective compilation Rare Replay.
The purpose of Rare is to remake the classic Battletoads gameplay without being restricted by the hardware of the 1980s. The game got its first game trailer at E3 in June 2019 and can be played at Microsoft’s November X019 trade fair. The game was originally expected to be released exclusively as Xbox One in 2019, but it was later scheduled to be released for Xbox One and Windows on August 20, 2020.
In the preview of the game, IGN wrote that although the game itself is still difficult, the game lacks the difficult platform of the well-known original platform. GamesRadar praised Dlala’s progress in the game in its mid-2019 presentation.
