Zitz, Rash, and Pimple will make their long-overdue return when Battletoads launches on August 20. The toad trio are getting their first standalone game in 26 years, and longtime fans and newcomers will want to play it when it arrives on PC and Xbox One in a few weeks.

For those who game exclusively on PC, you’ll need to know about Battletoads‘ PC requirements. As with any PC port, minimum and recommended specifications have been drawn up by the development team, so you know whether your system can run Battletoads. Set your attitude to “cool,” and let’s see what specs you need.

Battletoads minimum PC specifications

  • Operating system – Windows 10
  • Processor – Intel Pentium G620
  • Memory – 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics card – Nvidia GTX 650 or AMD R7 250x
  • DirectX – Version 11
  • Storage – 15 GB

The above specifications shouldn’t be too far out there, even for the lesser hardcore PC gamers. The 8 GB of RAM will probably be your biggest stumbling block, so ensure your PC has the required memory. Otherwise, you’ll find that the gameplay will stutter a lot, if not freeze on you completely.

Battletoads recommended system requirements

  • Operating system – Windows 10
  • Processor – AMD Phenom II x4 965
  • Memory – 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics card – Nvidia GTX 650Ti or AMD R7 260
  • DirectX – Version 11
  • Storage – 15 GB

There’s not much difference between the minimum and recommended specifications. You’ll need a better graphics card to really make Battletoads pop, and a faster processor to play it at its optimum level.

You can check your PC’s specs by heading to the Settings app. After opening this, head to “System,” and then scroll down the left-hand column until you see the “About” section. Click on this, scroll down the main page, and you’ll see your PC’s setup. You can check your specs against both requirements from here.
