Battletoads are back, along with those damn hoverbikes

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.

When he's not 50 hours into a JRPG or an opaque ASCII roguelike, Wes is probably playing the hottest games of three years ago. He oversees features, seeking out personal stories from PC gaming's niche communities. 50% pizza by volume.
