Me and the boys - Battletoads
E3 2019 finally revealed gameplay of the new Battletoads game for Xbox One. While the new art style is not much of my preference, I gave it a shot mixing it a bit with the style of the 90’s. Apparently the new game if full hand drawn, which must be a great effort and costly. I can really appreciate that and hopefully the game is good.

For some reason Battletoads never took off as TMNT. I beat the original NES game back then only to find out years later how much of a traumatic experience it was for many players because of its difficulty. I don’t know, I guess I had lots of free time back then. It was really difficult, but hilarious at the same time. I remember magazines praising it for its graphics, and it was well deserved. I became a big fan and I was looking forward for new games for years. I also beat Battlemaniacs and Battletoads & Double Dragon.

Not sure what happened. No comics, no cartoons. There is a cartoon pilot on Youtube which I find charming today, but back then I might have rejected immediately. I guess I would have expected something less campy, but not with the gore of the arcade game. Anyway, looking forward to what they do with this new adaptation.

Oh, and for those who love memes here is the source.
