Developers Rare and Dlala Studios have teamed up with Dark Horse to release a new art book centered around the latest entry in the Battletoads series. The book, which is well titled The art of battle toads, is the latest in a long line of video game art books that Dark Horse has published in recent years. And while the book itself may be something that many die-hard fans will quickly want to pick up on, sadly, it’s not due out until next summer.

Detailed by Dark Horse today, the publisher revealed that The art of battle toads is due out next summer on June 15, 2022. The art book will retail for $ 39.99 and is also now available for pre-order through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or other local bookstores in your vicinity. And while Battletoads as a whole have been around for decades, The art of battle toads will only present new looks at the art that was found in the 2020 reboot of the series that has come to the Xbox and PC platforms.

To coincide with today’s announcement, Dark Horse also unveiled the cover of the book which you can find below:
