[up] Mmmmm....Maybe it could happen. But first we'll see if the Battletoads doing well btw. It would be nice if the reboot becomes darker and edgier haha

Dude, did you play the arcade game?

Shit was brutal. Especially Zitz weapon of choices.

[up] Oh yeah. I forgot that the arcade game is pretty brutal too. Though have to admit that I would be fine if I saw the story and the characters could have a bit of an expansion IMO

E3 Trailer for Battletoads revealed

Hmmmm... I don't think I like the artstyle tbh. But I'm just going to look forward and see what happens.

Hope they still have Robo-Manus and the Dark Queen. The latter's crude childish insults were always amusing. And maybe her cowl will actually be properly attached to something.

Dark Queen actually did briefly pop up in the trailer for a about millisecond

I have to say as far as art direction, Battletoads by way of Kim Possible was not what I was expecting.

Still waiting for a Legion of Losers movie...

Awww, i was hoping they would have kept the Dominatrix design.

So far the artstyle change is hard to adjust to but let's see what happens when the game is out.

@fasoman Oh don't worry, I'm on the same boat... Would be nice if she retains her dominatrix design but oh well

And yeah, the artstyle feels kind of meh but we'll see in later future

Well that looks awful. Hopefully it plays better. I always liked how the arcade version looked and it didnít have bike racing.

Huh, I wonder how this'll turn out. Battletoads is best remembered for things that'd be considered horrible game design these days...

[up][up][up][up]I didn't really expect them to stick with the Jessica Rabbit / Elvira combo look anyway.

And at least she doesn't have that weird hovering cowl anymore.

Oh man, the backlash regarding the trailer is pretty huge btw (Seen Youtube comments [lol]) but I prefer not to step into the drama. Inb 4, it's going to be Sonic 2019 all over again when the people behind the scenes ended up redesign the character which is nice. tongue

Honestly, for Dark Queen, I prefer the Dominatrix version TBH

The new design for the Queen is kind of generic. The old look has some issues, but it was at least distinct.

Still, I'm not going to complain about it too much. It'd be kind of hypocritical of me to do that since I thought the people complaining that the new She-Ra wasn't as sexy as the original were being assholes.

It seems like this new game is going for a more kid-friendly direction compared to the original games.

Mmmmm yea... Come to think of it, seems that people on Microsoft want to make this game kid friendly as possible because you know...ERSB rating I guess?

Also, another problem with the trailer: They didn't show the release date? Booooooooo!!!

[up][up]The original was for kids too. This just feels...pointless.

I guess if you want to traumatize the kids with the bike race though...

Eh, they weren't that kid friendly even then. The arcade game in particular was pretty gory.

[up]The arcade game was the exception rather than the rule. That thing went overboard with blood and toilet humor that really wasnít a thing in any of the other versions. Or the infamous cartoon pilot.

The gore and toilet humor were amping up with each new game, culminating in the arcade game. It wasn't an exception — it was the logical conclusion.

I honestly don't know why everyone's fussing about the art style, I think it's pretty jamming. grin

They're doing the thing the TMNT 2012 series started and redesigned the Toads to better suit their personalities since, in retrospect, all they had going for them was different colors and different armbands.

This time:

  • Pimple looks even more like a Heavy Brawler type with much bigger arms and spiked wristbands.
  • Zitz looks much more like tech-savvy type. He's also looking way bluer than previous entries if I'm not mistaken. And did his head just turn into a robot for a split second? Because that was insane.
  • And Rash foregoes the spiked knee pads and looks more like the all-around cool one.

As for the Dark Queen, okay, some will miss the stripperific dominatrix look, but in light of circumstances wherein everyone is realizing "hey, maybe women shouldn't be objectified like they were back in the day", it was probably a good call to modest her up.

All in all, I'm pretty stoked for this to show up.

I wonder if we'll be able to literally kick enemies and bosses' butts off the screen again. I always thought that was a hilarious feature in the arcade game.

Still just going to see what's going to happen in the games though... I still don't like the direction on the artstyle (Especially on Dark Queen's case as I'm a huge fan of sexy badass lady with skimpy clothes :3). But we'll see if the game itself still retain its spirit in terms of difficulty as other than Dark Queen's appearance, Battletoads is also notorious for its difficulty.

Oh right, I don't even have an Xbox so I probably will look the Lets Plays for it if some people were interested in it.

I mean, going by the Kim Possible comparisons, a Shego-esque design would work pretty well here.tongue

Anyways, if someone like the new artstyle, more power for them as people does have different opinions and I don't blame them for that.

Though yeah, i still think it would be rather interesting if the backlash ended up becoming like Sonic 2019 again when the people behind the scenes ended up redesigning the characters tongue but we'll just dee what happens.

As long as they don't have the Friendly Fire from the first game, I think I'll be okay.
