Do you have Battletoads?

The infamously difficult game, and a constant thorn in the side of Rick from Pawn Stars, may be making a return. That is according to a recent trademark filing from Microsoft.

Sadly, the trademark filing offers no information whatsoever. Could it just be a re-release of the original Nintendo classic? Or is Microsoft going all in and creating a new entry into the series?

That’s really all the news we have so far. In the meantime, watch the Angry Video Game Nerd try and tackle the impossibly difficult classic.
