Battletoads' Rash coming to Killer Instinct, Season 3 begins March 2016

Killer Instinct launched with the Xbox One in 2013, but it's continuing to evolve and add new content into 2016, Microsoft announced as part of its Gamescom 2015 press conference. Season 3 will begin in March 2016, and though Microsoft was shy about details, it was revealed that the game will begin to incorporate guest characters from other video game franchises. First in line: Rash from Battletoads.

The anthropomorphic amphibian is available for preview starting today, though it was unclear exactly how players will access him. Microsoft specified that "Rare Replay players" would be able to play him, though anything beyond that is a mystery. Still, that's not one but two games featuring Battletoads for Xbox within the span of a year. Are you overdosing on nostalgia yet?
