E3 Trailer: ‘Battletoads’ (2019)

Battletoads” is back, and it’s coming to Xbox One in 2019. The game’s first trailer premiered at Sunday’s Xbox E3 2018 Briefing.

The all-new entry in the beloved series is being developed in partnership with Dlala Studios and will feature “body-morphing genre mashups, three-player couch co-op, 4K hand-drawn 2.5D graphics, and broad non-specific feature declarations,” Microsoft announced. The franchise first made its way to Xbox One as part of 2014’s “Rare Replay” anthology, and has since been teased and celebrated with a playable fighter in “Killer Instinct” (2013) and an optional Xbox Live gamerpic.

Originally released in 1991 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, “Battletoads” later made its way to a Tiger Electronics handheld of the same name, a separate Game Boy version, and three sequels.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo kicked off Sunday with the Xbox E3 2018 Briefing at 1 p.m. PT; you can watch the broadcast live here. The presser is being held at the Microsoft Theater across the street from the main event area. This year’s E3 takes place this week, from June 12 to June 14, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Twitch’s official coverage of the event began in earnest Sunday afternoon.
