Battletoads are back, along with those damn hoverbikes

Audio player loading…

Can I hear a ribbit? The first full trailer for the Battletoads revival premiered at today's Microsoft E3 conference, showing off Rash, Zitz, and Pimple beating on bad guys, solving puzzles, and dodging obstacles in a 3D hoverbike stage. Yes, prepare to experience that fresh hell all over again.

The series' traditional crazy body-morphing animations are prominently featured, now in a new hand-drawn style. The game promises three player couch co-op, beat 'em up action, racing, and other challenges. To be determined if the hoverbikes make us want to cry.

Wes has been covering games and hardware for more than 10 years, first at tech sites like The Wirecutter (opens in new tab) and Tested (opens in new tab) before joining the PC Gamer team in 2014. Wes plays a little bit of everything, but he'll always jump at the chance to cover emulation and Japanese games.


When he's not obsessively optimizing and re-optimizing a tangle of conveyor belts in Satisfactory (it's really becoming a problem), he's probably playing a 20-year-old Final Fantasy or some opaque ASCII roguelike. With a focus on writing and editing features, he seeks out personal stories and in-depth histories from the corners of PC gaming and its niche communities. 50% pizza by volume (deep dish, to be specific).
