A remake of the legendary Battletoads & Double Dragon: Ultimate Team in development

Updated: Sep 30, 2021

In 1993, the legendary beat 'em up game Battletoads & Double Dragon: Ultimate Team was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). It was a freaky crossover (then we did not even know such words) uniting the game worlds of Battletoads from the studio Rare and Double Dragon from the Japanese studio Technos Japan Corporation.

Since the game was fully developed by the studio Rare that released Battletoads, then Battletoads & Double Dragon can be called the second part of Battletoads. We played this masterpiece on Dandy, and other clones of the original NES, in my case it was the Subor console. Battletoads & Double Dragon has also been released on Sega, SNES, and even the Game Boy.

For 28 years, this game has not had a sequel or a remake. And I think everyone will agree that, like the Battletoads franchise, and Battletoads & Double Dragon in particular, it needs a restart, or a decent remaster.

With Microsoft's controversial reboot of Battletoads released in 2020, fans of the Battletoads series have lost hope of a decent remake. But still, this series deserves a good remake!

As it became known, a remake of Battletoads & Double Dragon: Ultimate Team is being developed right now by a fan. Dmitry, that is the name of the developer, promises to be ready by 2022.

At the moment, the first level is almost completely ready. Dmitry develops the game on his own, turning to the services of freelancers, as well as not indifferent fans of this legendary game.

If you are a developer or game designer and want to help with the development of a remake of Battletoads & Double Dragon, then you can contact the developer on the official website, or through the VK group.

All others interested in the release of the project can support the game by making a donation through the project's website. This will be very important, since development requires a lot of time and money, in particular for the services of freelance designers. So any support will allow the project to come out at its best!

Now the progress of development and details about the upcoming remake can be followed on the official website of the game

Personally, I am looking forward to the release of this project, as the original Battletoads & Double Dragon: Ultimate Team was and remains my favorite game on the NES.
