Battletoads: More than 10 million turbo bikes wrecked

The old toads are back with a bang and their newest exploits are proving popular.

While we don't have any sales figures or a player-count for Battletoads, which was released on Thursday last week, Rare shared a little nugget on Twitter during the weekend that seems to imply that the game is either doing great or is very hard. Maybe a bit of both.

It is Act 1, Stage 3: To The Queen that has been bugging people. A level where we get to ride the series' infamous turbo bikes again much too fast with obstacles just about everywhere - with one hit meaning instant death. This has led to gamers crashing a whole lot of bikes that were borrowed by the character Chet. Rare writes:

"You lot have wrecked more than 10 million turbo bikes now. Poor Chet."

10 million turbo bikes crashed after only a few days likely indicates that Battletoads has indeed been downloaded and played quite a lot. But as the game is tough as nails (and very entertaining), you can expect gamers to have died a lot on the turbo bike stage.

We hope Chet has good insurance.

"Battletoads might just end up being one of the best titles to come out of an Xbox Game Studio this year."
