The new Battletoads game announced in 2018 is finally almost upon us. Rare said today that the new game with the old name will go live on August 20, and dropped a new trailer to give us a taste of what it’s all about.

The first Battletoads game came out in 1991 and the most recent was in 1994, so for the benefit of those who weren’t spending their time baffing around on an NES way back when, this is how it goes: The Battletoads are actually aliens from outer space named Zitz, Rash, and Pimple, and they have the ability to morph parts of their bodies in order to kick more ass. The asses being kicked belong to the allies and flunkies of the Dark Queen, who for some reason kidnapped Pimple and Princess Angelica in the first game, touching off a beef that continues to this day.
