Battletoads Coming to Shovel Knight on Xbox One

Yacht Club Games revealed some very interesting news regarding the Xbox One version of Shovel Knight. While many figured that the PS4 version would be the definitive incarnation of the game thanks to the addition of Kratos, the Xbox One version now appears to have stolen that crown – at least for gamers who grew up in the early 90s.

You’ll face all three Battletoads in the Xbox One version of the game, and since their origins are in pixel-based games, they fit in far better with the world than Kratos does. This will be the first real use of the Battletoads IP since Microsoft acquired Rare in 2002, although there were some Battletoads-inspired items in Kinect Sports Rivals.
