Battletoads 2019 for Xbox One is one of those games that a lot of people wanted and was hinted at. However, I think that deep down a lot of us thought that this game would probably never happen. Well E3 2019 showed a really badass sizzle reel kind of trailer that showed us not only was Battletoads coming to the Xbox One, it actually looks pretty darn awesome too!
What Is The Story?
Ok so as I write this, we actually know very little of what the deal with the Battletoads is! We do know that Rash, Pimple, and Zitz are back and they once again need to save the day. From the trailer, it looks like the Pigs are up to no good again as the trailer does make a point to showcase one of the bosses who looks awesome by the way. To be fair in a game like this, the story is not always that important.
Three Player Action!
As you have three Battletoads to play as in Rash, Pimple, and Zitz. It is only natural that Battletoads 2019 for Xbox One is going to be a three-player game. This is very action packed and it looks like there is some great team-up moves that you guys can do together. These are sure to make you play as more of a team. One thing that I certainly hope is not going to happen is being able to hit your teammates. I hate when beat em ups do this and there is a level on the NES Battletoads where this is a massive problem so I certainly hope that is not going to be an issue here!
It Looks Great!
One of the things that I love about the teaser trailer they showed for this game is the art style. It has a very cell-shaded kind of look to it and the game has a ton of personality. I love how they have kept the over the top fighting moves of the Battletoads. In these games when you dish out a combo it can end with a giant boot, a set of horns or a big fist! It is fun and cool to see. It looks like this new version of Battletoads is going to be even more over the top in this regard.
Plenty Of Variety
If you have eyes like a hawk, you will notice that the gameplay trailer showed that they were bringing back the turbo tunnel from the NES! Now before you freak out and swear off this game. Just know that it looks much more fun this time around and you are viewing the action from behind the Battletoads so you actually have time to react to what is coming to you.
Also, you can see that they claim there is going to be action, racing, teamwork, puzzle-solving and more! It sounds like they are certainly trying to give us as much bang for our bucks as possible with this game.
Battletoads 2019 for Xbox One and PC is looking like it is going to be a fantastic game. There has been no new Battletoads game since the arcade in 1994! So it has been a long wait for fans of the game. This is certainly one that you want to keep your eyes peeled for.
