E3 2018: New Battletoads Coming in 2019 as Xbox One Exclusive

Body-morphing technology! 4.5K graphics! Rashes, zits, and pimples!


At its E3 2018 Xbox Briefing, Microsoft announced a new Battletoads game set to launch in 2019. Rash, Zit, and Pimple will give big boots—and likely race through turbo tunnels—exclusively on the Xbox One family of game consoles.

The possibility of a Battletoads reboot has been hinted at for years, and the rumors have borne fruit. Not many details are known, however. Today's reveal trailer was more of a teaser. Microsoft may drop more details once E3 2018 kicks into high gear later this week.
