Developer Rare is planning to fix Battletoads' infamous two-player co-op glitch for the upcoming Rare Replay collection for Xbox One. Speaking this week at Comic-Con, the developer said it plans to remove the glitch, even though it is a "part of Battletoads legend.
"We're aware of the bug," Rare studio head Craig Duncan said, as reported by Polygon. "It's part of Battletoads legend."
"We have a way of fixing it, so it is something that's on our final bug list."
Battletoads, a beat-'em-up originally released for NES in 1991, is known for its difficulty.
But as Polygon explains, the bug made a difficult game even more challenging. After reaching the eleventh level in co-op, Player Two's controls would bug out, leaving the player unable to move. As a result, the other player needed to give up their own remaining lives so their friend could play on.
Also during the panel, Duncan said that--because of the glitch has become part of the Battletoads legend--Rare wasn't initially sure that it even wanted to fix it. But, it was later decided that, "Yes, we're gonna fix it."
