According to the French Wikipedia, the game Battletoads exists! Not only that, this has been common knowledge in the French Wikipedia since 2007!

Of course, ED has Battletoads as well. Aparently none of the spoil sports on English Wikipedia speak French, so the French article is probably safe for another few more years....until they enter high school and start taking French classes...

edit: there's an article about this in the English WP....

I guess it's not entirely a hoax, but it was selected to be one of a "hundred trial pending changes" test cases....

I take it that you weren't around for the early 90s. o.O The game is rather famous regardless of a lame meme.

Not entirely a hoax? It's not a hoax at all. I remember playing the game as a kid.

I'm not a video game person at all. In any case, it's interesting that this article is one of a hundred test cases for "stable versions". Talk about priorities!
