Battletoads are Coming to Shovel Knight on Xbox One

During today's Microsoft GDC press conference, we saw the first glimpse of Battletoads running on an Xbox One - it just wasn't in a Battletoads game.

Today at the Game Developer's Conference in San Francisco, Microsoft announced that the indie-hit Shovel Kinght would be coming to the Xbox One, with the Battletoads making an appearance. While we don't have further information at this time, this is just one of the many hints towards a next-generation Battletoads game being development.

The head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, himself wore a Battletoads shirt during Microsoft's Hololens and Windows Ten unveiling. An unabashed fan of the franchise, Spencer is piling on the hype to add to the hints from the Twycross-based Rare about new games in development. But what did Phil have to say about the placement of the Battletoads characters in the Shovel Knight announcement?

"That wasn't me."

You can watch the full GDC Xbox press conference here shortly.

I love Battletoads. And Shovel Knight is one of the dopest indie games ever.

...This is so scummy.

RARE STOP MAKING ME LOOK AT THAT CONSOLE PLEASE THANKS <3

First Conker in PS then this... if they hyped easter eggs a decade ago as much as they do now, Nuts and Bolts would've driven Microsoft's marketing team bankrupt.

Easter eggs used to just be a thing they threw into games left and right (notably N&B), but this time they hyped it up for months acting like there would be a new Battletoads game... for an easter egg.

Nice. And I think this could be the extent of the trademark renewal, for now. People who blindly believe there will be a Battletoads game reveal at E3 might have a surprise waiting for them.

There's a huge chance the game will come eventually, but I can definitely see it not being this year.

Uh... there still likely is a new Battletoads game. The Shovel Knight dev even said, "Wonder where we'll see these guys next.."
