In a very strange turn of events, what with Rock Band, Mass Effect, and Super Mario Galaxy currently on store shelves, people have been calling local Gamestop’s for a slightly older title as of late. And by slightly, I mean by about a decade or so.

Battletoads, Rare’s awesome amphibian adventure from way, way back, has for some reason become the game of choice for pre-orders at the local Gamestops around my area. How do I know that? Well, my close connection of geek cohorts from four different Gamestops have recently told me that more than any other game requested from callers, Battletoads is the game people have requested most.

Whether this is just some weird internet phenomenon or something far more sinister, I don’t know. But honestly, I don’t think a sequel to Battletoads is such a bad idea. I mean, who wouldn’t want to romp with Rash, Wart, and Pimple in an all out, kick ass-a-thon across the galaxy again? (Kudos if they throw in Billy and Jimmy Lee for good measure).

I mean, besides Killer Instinct, Battletoads is probably the only other Rare title I could care less about them remaking (Banjo Kazooie? Perfect Dark? Pa-leaze!)

So, if you’re listening Rare (Why would you be, though?), please remake Battletoads. It would save a few Gamestop employees an aspirin or three.
