Dotemu and developer Tribute Games have released nostalgia-fueled beat ’em up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge on PC and consoles, for $24.99. It’s launching with a 10% discount for the next week on Switch and Xbox, two weeks for PlayStation, and three weeks on Steam.

Shredder’s Revenge is a side-scrolling beat ’em up, inspired by Turtles games from the late 80s and early 90s such as Manhattan Project and Turtles in Time.

In addition to playing as the four turtles, players can also assume the role of turtle allies Master Splinter, April O’Neil, and Casey Jones. Each fighter has their own attributes, moves, and animations. Up to six players can join the co-op brawl over local and online co-op.

The story mode features the return of iconic Turtles villains and locations on a colorful world map. Brawlers can also explore the challenging arcade mode.

An all new original sound track by Tee Lopes (Streets of Rage 4: Mr. X Nightmare), is available to download and stream on Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube. The soundtrack features a hip hop track written and performed by Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, though I’m partial to the 80’s hair metal song featured in the launch trailer, by Jonny Atma and Tee Lopes.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is available on Steam, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One. It’s rated E10+ for Fantasy Violence.
