This reveal underwhelmed the crap out of me. Hate the art style. Would have been happy with an Earthworm Jim style. I hate that cheap 90s cartoon flavor. Blech. And the animation looked pretty darn framey with bad key poses. I guess I have to see more, but initial reaction was not good.

From watching the gameplay in that video it seems kinda Earthworm Jimmy to me? Maybe just a nostalgia thing since that's how like all Sega and Super Nintendo games looked in the 90's

Well, Phil is the man at Xbox. He has the powa. He loved Battletoads, and wanted a new one made. If I was in Phil's position, I would be like...make me some Zaxxon 2 now b****es.
Gyruss or GTFO.

I really don't care if game is good or bad, but how they thought it a good idea to change the og style so fundamentally to that abomination of aesthetics is beyond me lol
Really?
I like this art style. This game looks funny.

The graphics are growing on me, but there seems like something is off. Maybe the players are just bad, but lots of swinging wildly without any connection. I'm not sure if there is an issue with collision detection, the characters are too "thin", or if it is just the temporary invincibility of enemies after they get back up, but this seems like it could be very frustrating.

Doesn't the original move similar to how this does?
Even if it does, it's not much of an excuse, imo. The original was loved for its characters and nostalgia, not is amazing and unique controls.

They should be adding to the formula, not aping it...
