Remember Battletoads? It might be on its way back!


Since Microsoft acquired Rare, the company that released countless classics for Nintendo platforms, they’ve not really hit their stride on any of the Xbox platforms. Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Conker: Live and Reloaded, Kameo: Elements of Power, Perfect Dark ZeroViva Piñata and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts were all pretty mediocre, with perhaps Kameo being the most underrated out of the bunch. What happened since? Oh, Rare become Kinect developers and were pushed into creating Kinect Sports titles. What a waste. There is a silver lining to this. Microsoft has just trademarked Battletoads.

Having a tough time recollecting what that was? Have a look:

Microsoft confirmed the trademark to Polygon, after discovering that a user on Neogaf sniffed this information out on the US trademark application web site.

This will likely appeal to retro fans, such as myself. Are there anyone else out there that’s in a state of something like this?: O_O

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
