Battletoads & Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team was released in 1993 and brought together two powerhouse franchises. Double Dragon was one of the first successful arcade beat 'em up titles while Battletoads was one of the most renowned beat 'em ups on consoles.  With so much muscle packed into one game, how could the Dark Queen and Shadow Boss hope to take over the world? But it isn't just them on the warpath!  You'll have to deal with Abobo, Big Blag, Roper, Robo-Manus, and many other minions. Whether in single-player or two-player modes, you'll venture through seven stages throwing everything at you from fighting, platforming, speeder bikes, space shooters, and then some!

The upcoming Collector's Edition from Retro-Bit Publishing will bring this ultimate team-up into the 21st century with an individually-numbered deluxe hardcover box that is scaled to the dimensions of traditional 8-Bit cartridge packaging for display continuity. It will also house a Jumpin' Jade cartridge for compatible 8-Bit systems and include a full-color instruction manual. Something Retro-Bit Publishing is introducing in this collector's edition is an exclusive acrylic cartridge display stand featuring pixelated characters that represent both Battletoads and Double Dragon.
