Battletoads is launching this week on Xbox One and PC although gamers are still waiting on word on an official release time. For now, all we know is what day this week gamers will have the chance to try out the return of Rash, Zitz, and Pimple.


Microsoft has confirmed that the Battletoads release date has been set for Thursday, August 20, 2020.

Battletoads will be available on PC and Xbox One, meaning that plenty of gamers will have a chance to check it out.

The good news is that Microsoft has confirmed that Battletoads, like most other Xbox exclusives, will be available to download from the Xbox Game Pass.

“From Xbox Game Studios, available with Xbox Game Pass on day one! The wait is over!” a message from Microsoft explains.

“Rash, Zitz, and Pimple are returning at last to smash-hit their way through an all-new action-packed adventure of choreographed chaos, and couch co-op may never be the same again.

“Teamwork makes the dream work in a drop-in, drop-out gameplay blast, filled with over-the-top gameplay moments that anyone can enjoy, but only a True ‘Toad’ can master. Pre-install now, so you’re ready to play when it drops.

“With a unique hand-animated cartoon style and packed with memorable characters and locations, the Battletoads are back for a larger-than-life brawl across the universe that promises to be fun alone, and unforgettable together.”
