What do three crazy amphibians have in common with two buffed brothers who are into martial arts? Well, everything, now that the Battletoads have joined the Lee Brothers (alias Billy and Jimmy) for a toadaciously outrageous NES action/adventure game, the likes of which (and we can guarantee this) you've never seen before).
At first glance, Battletoads/Double Dragon seems like the April Fools prank, but THIS IS NO JOKE! There really is an NES game coming your way that stars heroes from two of the most popular NES games to date. This game looks good enough to put some life back into even the dustiest of NES game systems.
The good folks at Rare teamed up with the Tradewest squad to create eight levels of multi-scrolling, simultaneous two- player gaming. One player can be Rash, Zitz, or Pimple (the Battletoads), while a buddy gets to play as either Billy or Jimmy Lee (the Double Dragon Brothers).
In this game, the Dark Queen is in cahoots with none other than the Shadow Boss. With such infamous bad guys as Robo-Manus, Abobo, Big Blag, and Roper in tow, this sinister duo has crashed the Colussus (a gigantic battle cruiser) onto the surface of the moon. Their nefarious scheme is to make some bad 'n' mad mayhem for Planet Earth. It's gonna take the combined fighting power of the Lee Brothers and the Battletoads to stop the gruesome twosome.
Both the 'Toads and the 'Dragons can pull their all-time classic moves, which are rendered with the same classy animation that made them popular the first time around. Both can punch, kick, toss enemies, plus whomp them from side to side, and grab the weapons that they drop. The only thing that's missing is the laugh track, which would nicely highlight the hysterical spectacle of toad and dude fighting side by side.
We can't wait to get our flippers... er... fists on this one. We'll have a blow- by-blow and some cool tips lined up soon. Wonder if Rash, Zitz, and Pimple are the first toads on the moon? This game could be one giant leap for man- and toad-kind.
