Its going to be a small indie game......very very few will go out of their way to buy a console for such a small game. Willing to bet people dont even know Rare isnt the one making it.......and that Dlala is the main dev. Granted no one knows who Dlala is lol

I actually had no idea who was making it but didn't think it'd be Rare anyway... and you're right, I have no idea who Dlala are lol



I feel like this happens every gen where some big games launch right at the end of a console's life span that make some wonder "why was this not just waited on for the next gen launch", for example ones like The Last of Us releasing right at the end of the PS3's life and just a few months before the PS4.

In terms of Battletoads though we don't know if it will necessarily be a 'big' game or not yet since we still haven't seen anything about it, i'm super glad to see a new game being made in it but we've yet to see how big in scope this will be, will it be like a small Xbox Store downloadable game or like a full fledged game release. I could see it being maybe like a $30 game like how Rare Replay and Super Lucky's Tale were.

Plus like KLAMarine said, the next Xbox will probably have backwards compatibility again as well (I can't see them dropping it again after how hard they pushed to get it back with the Xbox One) so it will probably be playable there too. Either that or if the game turns out to be super successful and popular they can always just port it over to next-gen early in its life like how Sony did with The Last of Us Remastered, again for example.



I'd remind people that games don't have to be a homerun to be a good launch game. Take the SNES for instance. Were Pilotwings, F-Zero, and Sim City necessarily system sellers? Not really, but put them together with Super Mario World and you've got an excellent launch.

Battletoads falls well within that. It's not going to carry a launch, but you toss it in as a spice and it makes everything better.

If I'm the head of Xbox I'd like to build the consumer trust before the next console. They nailed the hardware with S and X and now I'm they need to work on the software.
2018 they acquired few studios, 2019 they release good amount of games, and 2020 they should continue doing that and have few more for the new console.



i hope the reboot plays something like:

“battletoads of war”

that would be amazing.

Dlala? Terrible name. Worse even than this: https://www.yelp.com/biz/young-dong-garden-arcadia-2

They went under, and that name was probably the reason. Because Dlala has a similar impairment, they need to be extra careful with what they produce.

On topic, I'm thinking the release date is fine too. Sorry Captain.

I don't even know what Battletoads is without looking it up on Google. Banjo Kazooie or Perfect Dark, sure, but I never heard of Battletoads before Spencer used it on a T shirt. And even if I'm not a very old gamer and don't know a lot of the pre-PS1 era, I'm certain that I know more than the average customer.

 

So no, I don't think the game will be big, and even less a system seller, especially if they want to sell it with the name alone. You can sell Crash or Spyro on nostalgia, not Battletoads IMO. So it can release anytime they want, it won't change a thing.
