Microsoft might reveal a brand new Battletoads game for the Xbox One at GamesCom 2016.
Rash the Battletoad’s surprising cameo in the new Killer Instinct fighting game (pictured) made many gamers, including us, believe that Microsoft was cooking up something, and a leaked Xbox Store listing seems to indicate the Xbox One will indeed be getting a standalone Battletoads game.
Discovered by a Twitter user, the listing shows an upgraded Battletoads logo and a grainy description of the game. It also lists Rare as the developer.

From what little we can see of the description, it seems the new Battletoads will follow much of the same story as the original game, possibly making it a reboot of sorts.
Considering the original Battletoads was included in Rare Replay, it won’t be surprising if Microsoft tasked Rare with developing the game.
If the Xbox Store listing is legit, Microsoft will likely announce and reveal at GamesCom. What do you hope to get from a new Battletoads game?
