A new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles beat-'em-up has been announced. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is a retro throwback to the SNES days, and it's coming to PC and consoles soon.
What do we know about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge?
This new TMNT beat-'em-up is being developed by Montreal studio Tribute Games, who seem pretty psyched to be working on the project. In a rather charmingly excitable press release, Tribute said the upcoming Shredder's Revenge is "directly inspired by classic TMNT games" such as Turtles in Time. It'll use pixel art to depict the Turtles as they would have appeared back in 1987 on home consoles and arcades, and you'll be able to enjoy it either solo or with some buddies. Check out the teaser trailer below to whet your appetite for some shell-kicking action. For an extra thrill, listen out for Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton's dulcet tones on the theme tune.
You'll visit a series of "timeless TMNT locations" and take on some classic villains in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. If you're a fan, you can look forward to the return of Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, and Shredder, among other returning favorites. True to its name, Tribute says everything in the game - each weapon, backdrop, enemy, and item - is inspired by something in the classic 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV show. Of course, this is all topped off with a classic dose of Turtles humor. This looks very much like it'll be one to watch for fans of the show.
When is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge release date?
Right now, unfortunately, we don't have a release date for this promising project. Tribute and publisher Dotemu (who also published Streets of Rage 4) simply list the release date as "coming soon" on the Shredder's Revenge Steam page. If you want to know what platforms the game will be appearing on...well, that's something Tribute wants to know, too. Right now, all we know is that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge will be coming to "PC and consoles". The devs are remaining tight-lipped as to which consoles those might be.
If you want more information about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge, Tribute invites you to join the game's Discord server. There, not only can you chat with likeminded fans about the game, but you'll also spot the occasional Tribute dev, who will pop up from time to time in order to reveal more about Shredder's Revenge's development. Of course, we'll also bring you more on Shredder's Revenge as soon as we get it. For now, dust off those twin swords and call your favorite pizza place, because the heroes in a half-shell are back.
