There was once a time when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were the peak of pop culture, receiving a litany of TV shows, films, toys and even games. While the IP is perhaps not quite as valuable as it once was, there are many fans who undoubtedly look forward to their return. Fortunately they will not have to wait too long, as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge has been announced.
Developed and published by Tribute Games and Dotemu, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge “reunites Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello to kick shell in a beautifully realized pixel art world invoking the turtles’ classic 1987 design.”
The game’s plot is as follows: “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.”
Side scrolling beat em ups are currently seeing a resurgence, with the likes of River City Girls, Streets of Rage 4, and Scott Pilgrim vs the World all being received very well by both old and new fans alike. Hopefully Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge can sit alongside these other games. We will have to wait and see, when the game releases sometime in the (hopefully near) future.
