Not only were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles atop the cultural cartoon pile throughout the late 80s and 90s, they inspired some totally awesome video games, including Manhattan Project and Turtles in Time. Tribute Games and Dotemu, in partnership with Nickelodeon, have announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, a classic side-scrolling Beat ’em Up coming to PC and consoles.
Check out nostalgic-fueled announcement trailer above, with classic TV theme song by Faith No More’s Mike Patton.
Shredder’s Revenge stars the famous foursome of Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello, as they kick shell in a pixelated tour of iconic locations, like the sewers and streets of New York City, and Dimension X. Villains Bebop and Rocksteady have begun gathering gadgets for Krang and Shredder’s latest scheme, and it’s up to the turtles in a half-shell to stop them.
Like the classic Turtles Beat ’em Up of old, Shredder’s Revenge will support up to four player co-op.
Dotemu has become known for publishing gorgeous, faithful, yet modern ports and remakes of classic games, as with Streets of Rage 4 and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. Tribute Games’ resume includes Flinthook, Mercenary Kings, and Scot Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game.
The announcement did not include a release date, nor confirmed platforms beyond “PC and consoles,” but it’s available for wishlisting on Steam.
