If you're unfamiliar with the genre-busting gameplay of the Battletoads series, here are the essentials: Zitz, Rash and Pimple are three brawling bruisers from outer space who can morph parts of their bodies to dish out extra destruction. They're back! Microsoft has announced that a new Battletoads game is coming this August 20 and is being developed by Dlala Studios in conjunction with Rare!

Just last week, rumour had it that Rare would be soon releasing a brand-new trailer, and new information about the upcoming title, and wouldn't you know it the rumours were true, as Rare has just released a brand-new trailer that sees Rash, Zitz, and Pimple teaming up with the Dark Queen.

Xbox Game Pass subscribers can preload Battletoads on console and PC from today (July 31) so you're ready to duke it out come launch day. Finally, after 26 years of waiting, fans of Zitz, Rash, and Pimple are getting a successor to the infuriatingly hard original after Microsoft announced an official release date for the Dlala Studios-developed game. You can find the game by searching for Battletoads on your Xbox One or the Xbox App for PC, or you can download the Xbox Game Pass mobile app for iOS or Android. Dlala's new approach focuses on maintaining this mayhem while ensuring you have enough options to play at your own pace. The game will also feature 3-player couch co-op, as well as a variety of difficulty settings to cater to players of different skill levels.
