Fans can now purchase a Battletoads NES Legacy Cartridge Collection, which will either come in Translucent Zits Green or the rarer (one in eight chance) Pimple Brown. The playable video game cartridge is limited to 2,000 available and only sold from iam8bit for $99.99. It features retro surprises, a specialty fold-out foil box with gloss and embellishments, restored artwork, and a foreword written by Jirard “The Completionist” Khalil.
For those looking for a more musical adventure, Battletoads: Smash Hits Vinyl Soundtrack is — you guessed it — Pimple Pink and loaded with tunes from the original game as well as a “metal-drenched score.” For $42.99 fans will get the two discs (David Wise: Battletoads, 1991 and David Housden: Battletoads, 2020), an iam8bit-exclusive “Kiss My Fist” 3D Pop-Up Gatefold Jacket, and a digital download. Some fans — a lucky 500 — will be randomly selected to receive the Rash’s Toadally Rad Adventure Cassette.
It’s a great time to be a fan of amphibians named after skin problems, apparently. Both items are up for preorder now.
