Super Battletoads è un gioco appartenente alla saga Battletoads recentemente scoperto. Un vero e proprio titolo perduto per Game Boy che non giocheremo mai, appena svelato da un ex dipendente di RARE, Paul Machacek, che ne ha parlato durante una intervista al sito Rare Fan Da Base.
Ecco le parole dell’autore riguardo a Super Battletoads:
Probably the most annoying is Super Battletoads on the Gameboy. Heard of it? No, nor has almost anyone else. It was the fourth one I’d written in the serious, was a spinoff from the arcade game of the same name, and was 100% finished and signed off by Test. Then it got cancelled shortly after I moved onto Donkey Kong Land because the arcade game had underperformed in market and Tradewest pulled the plug on the whole franchise.
In 2015, during Rare Replay development, with long term members of Rare saying to me “don’t be silly, that game never existed”, we found it sitting on an old disc. A finished copy of the game. One of the engineers here happened to have a Gameboy emulator and we dragged the file into it and waited with bated breath. It ran! I couldn’t believe it, no one had seen this game in about 22 years, and I was the only person who recalled its existence at all.
