Unreleased Battletoads Title For The Nintendo Game Boy Advance To Be Leaked Soon

Unreleased-Battletoads-Title-For-The-Nintendo-Game-Boy-Advance-To-Be-Leaked-SoonEarlier this month, the kind group behind Rareware Central brought us a ROM of the unreleased and early version of Banjo Pilot, known as Diddy Kong Pilot. Continuing their good deeds towards the preservation of retro gaming, the Rare fanatics are ready to share the unreleased Battletoads game for the Game Boy Advance.

There was a new Battletoads game that was meant to be released on the Game Boy Advance?! To tell the truth, we were oblivious too. Being such an iconic grindfest of difficulty in 1991, it does come as a surprise that the anthropomorphic toads; Rash, Zitz and Pimple have not made an apperance in the gaming world since 1994.

While Rare clearly had plans to revive the toad trio in the Game Boy Advance days, sadly the project fell deep into the depths of the unreleased gaming void. At least until now... Rareware Central are hoping to release a ROM of the unfinished GBA outing on the 19th November, in a similar fashion to their Diddy Kong Pilot release.

Battletoads (Unreleased) - Game Boy Advance Gameplay Video

As the video clearly shows, the game remains somewhat unfinished, but playable. Sadly the cartoon style of the toads seems to be lost in favour of a more modern 3D look, however we're not complaining given this is yet another unreleased game we will soon be enjoying.

Interesting. A lot of charm died with the removal of the cartoon-style of the game.

For the first time in my life, I have to say this unreleased game looks terrible. Such a pity that the Battletoads had to go out like a beloved pet in the family.

Wow, two Rareware prototypes in as many weeks? I was hoping the Battletoads prototype would surface sooner or later- it's not much of a looker, no, but it's fascinating just to know it even exists.

The way Rareware Central are finding these things so quickly, we'll probably have Mire Mare next week ;-) (serious answer- maybe they'll find the Donkey Kong version of It's Mr. Pants)

Btw, for anyone interested, it's been out for a day or two now.
