The arcade-style beat ’em up is currently available for Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC along with Xbox Game Pass.
Cyrille Imbert, CEO of publisher Dotemu, stated in a press release, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is the game I dreamed of working on ever since I started watching the original cartoon and funneling coins into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade cabinets as a kid. We are immensely grateful to Nickelodeon for the opportunity to honor an era of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that profoundly impacted the lives of everyone at Dotemu, and to our friends at Tribute Games for expertly capturing the classic thrill of the Turtles’ battles with the Foot Clan in a new experience that feels completely fresh and exciting to play.”
Tribute Games co-founder Jean-Francois Major also said, “Tribute Games set out to make the ultimate celebration of a chapter in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles history that means the world to us, and it’s been wonderful to watch the accessible fun of beat-em-ups resonate with longtime fans and genre newcomers alike. We’re thankful for all of the support and encouragement of the passionate Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles community has shown us since the reveal of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesand we look forward to watching players continue to discover the easter eggs we’ve hidden throughout the game while chaining together some bodacious combos.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge sees Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael teaming up once again to fight off against Shredder (with some help from Master Splinter, April O’Neil and Casey Jones). Along with the Foot Clan, they’ll face classic foes like Rocksteady, Bebop, the Rat King, and more.
There’s Story Mode, which offers different challenges and collectibles, and upgrades for more health. Or you could opt for the old-school Arcade experience with limited lives and no checkpoints.
