Have a look at that crisp, angular 2D animation. Have a look at these fully-voiced cutscenes. Have a look at all that trademark 1990s in-your-face perspective—I’m reflexively consuming my very own shorts as I kind out this information story.
The trailer reveals off old school beat-em-up gameplay with the collection’ trademark goofy assaults and weapons, plus the return of the notorious hoverbike ranges. A number of extra typical platforming sections appear to be spliced in there, too. A mixture of 2D and 3D backgrounds will shift as the extent calls for. Native three-player co-op can be enabled for the complete recreation.
As if to embrace the Teenage Mutant Ninja Ripoff power of the unique Battletoads video games, Uncommon took to Twitter to re-enact a classic bit of internet humor, utilizing the official GameStop Twitter account as an unwilling prop.
