    Battletoads is a storied franchise from the early days of gaming. The original game is still remembered for its notorious difficulty.

    However, the franchise has been dormant for decades at this point despite calls from fans for a revival. Many had given up hope of ever seeing these toads of battle vanquish their foes once again. However, it seems that such despair might have been a bit premature...

    :arrow:USPTO

    While you wait desperately for more news and information, feel free to leave a call at the Gold & Silver Pawn Show in Las Vegas. I'm sure they'd be happy to fulfill any Battletoads related request.

    If they could make a new Conker game as well that would make Xbox One awesome!

    Time to pick up and destroy another IP just because of its recognition.

    Battletoads Kinect, confirmed*. If you thought the speeder bikes were hard before, just wait until you have to pantomime it by squatting and jumping!


    *or not

    There is an obvious joke here that I am clearly missing about the pawn thing, and it is killing me trying to figure out what it is.

    People would call various game stores and the Pawn Shop thing and ask for Battletoads and shit. Pretty funny.

    Earlier in the day I was joking about how dead and practically forgotten franchises are getting revived, and now I see this. I can't handle this.

    Make the first level a super long speed bike level! Damn I hated that as a kid on NES. Oh, and making it 100% impossible to beat the game with 2 players was great too :).

    Why does everyone completely ignore the beat-em-up that existed in arcades? oh, right... same reason I used to; didn't even know it existed until the likes of MAME.

    Still, I'd rather see the Battletoads Arcade game get revived than ANYTHING resembling the NES game, please.

    Can't wait for the fallout against Gamestop when they start hanging up on legitimate preorder requests.

    They did destroy an IP with Nuts and Bolts and botched the Conker's Bad Day remake, so....

    I should go call my local GameStop to see if they have Battletoads and record it.

    I am curious of how Microsoft is gonna handle Battletoads.
