Battletoads premiered yesterday, the first in the series in nearly 30 years. On this occasion, Microsoft has prepared an unusual trailer with the participation of Xbox Program Director Larry Hryb (Larry Hryb).
As part of a one and a half minute video, the animated version of Chrib, also known under the pseudonym Major Nelson, interviews the main characters of the Battletoads – the battle toads Rush, Zitz and Pimple.
In addition to Khrib, there is another employee of the Microsoft gaming department in the video – at the beginning of the trailer, the head of the Xbox marketing department Aaron Greenberg is talking to the alien on the screen behind the characters.
Unlike most videos of this kind, in the premiere trailer for Battletoads, one of its heroes tells about the main features of old-school action. In this case, Zitz.
The characters have also commented on the revival of other classic franchises. According to Rush, battle toads have nothing to worry about – competitors do not know how to transform and use language as a weapon.
Contrary to the loud claims of battle toads, critics did not receive the new Battletoads too warmly. On Metacritic, the project has only 72 points out of 100, while its direct competitor Streets of Rage 4 has 84 points.
Battletoads is already available on PC (Steam, Windows 10) and Xbox One, as well as through Xbox Game Pass. The day before the release, developers from Rare and Dlala Studios posted a 25-minute video of the gameplay.
