Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge (New Retro Inspired Beat ‘Em Up)

This sounds pretty cool. Basically a sequel to Turtles in Time. Sounds like it’ll be on PC as well as consoles. Hopefully it comes to Switch.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are getting a new retro beat-’em-up

Thirty years later, we’re finally getting a sequel (of sorts) to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. On Wednesday, publisher Dotemu and game developer Tribute Games revealed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, described as “a classically informed side scrolling beat-em-up directly inspired by classic TMNT games.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is a four-player co-op beat-’em-up in the classic Konami style — that is, the style of brawler that sucked quarters out of anyone who played 1989’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and its 1991 sequel, Turtles in Time, in arcades. Presumably, Shredder’s Revenge will offer a gameplay experience tailored for home, not for draining TMNT fans of their allowance.

As seen in the game’s debut trailer, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello will take on classic enemies like the Foot Clan, Bebop, and Rocksteady in their new side-scrolling adventure. The trailer also teases the appearances of other friends and foes — all to the tune of the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesanimated series theme song, as sung by Mike Patton of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle fame.

Here’s the official setup of the game’s story and mechanics:

With Bebop and Rocksteady amassing gizmos to support Krang and Shredder’s latest scheme, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge finds the turtles battling through a breathless tour of iconic TMNT locations to thwart their nemeses’ most diabolical plan yet. Armed with shell-shocking new abilities built on a foundation of classic brawling mechanics, the gang are in for an exhilarating, Foot Clan-stomping romp leading them through the sewers and bustling boroughs of New York City all the way to Dimension X.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is being developed by Montreal-based Tribute Games. Two of the founders of that studio, Jonathan Lavigne and Justin Cyr, previously worked on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Gameand TMNT, the acclaimed 2007 brawler for Game Boy Advance, at Ubisoft. Tribute’s other work includes retro-inspired fare Panzer Paladin, Flinthook, Wizorb, and Mercenary Kings. (In other words, it’s a far more promising prospect compared to the Ninja Turtles games from PlatinumGames and from Red Fly Studiobrought to us by Activision.)

Since its inception in 2007, publisher Dotemu has leaned heavily into classic game nostalgia with retro remakes and sequels such as Streets of Rage 4, Windjammers 2, and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is bound for unspecified consoles and PC platforms. Dotemu and Tribute Games did not announce a release date.

More of this please... I'm shocked that developers haven't gone back to that side-scrolling well of gameplay and put stuff in the stores for $20 or $30. Between this announcement and Retromania, I'm stoked.

I'd play it in a heartbeat. Have they ever re-released the other TMNT arcade games, like on PS4 or beyond? I'd buy those, too.

The updated animation and theme song is pretty cool too. Wonder if there’s a possibility of a revamped version of the 80s cartoon and the opening in the trailer was a test.

Turtles in Time was available on PS3 and 360 once upon a time, but it was long since pulled down as Konami no longer had the license.

Turtles in Time on the 360/PS3 was a “remastered” remake that looked pretty terrible. The original arcade game with no such tweaks was also available.

Loved Turtles in Time on the SNES as a kid. This looks pretty sweet.

Loved the original arcade cabinet, if this has multi-player so all three of us can play, we are totally onboard.

I built a MAME and one of the first games my son played was Turtles in Time... after he spent about 20 "quarters" and beat the game, he said "That's it!!??"

I laughed and told him that's how it was back in the day.. you spent your entire allowance to try and beat a game. There are no saves, there is no chance to pause and come back.

Cool... looks like they didn't over-think it and kept it faithful to the old school feel.

Looks great, but I’m hesitant to get too excited until I know what systems it’ll be on. I’m all in for a Switch version.

Looks very fun. I will say the graphics look very pulled back, I'd even wager the graphics for TMNT IV: Turtles in Time on SNES are better, but I could be mistaken. The music is great!

I think graphically it’s pretty similar to Turtles in Time.

"Bury my shell at Wounded Knee" I always remember that line for some reason. This game looks cool.
