Publisher DotEmu announced that over one million copies of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge have been sold in the first week, a huge milestone for a non-AAA release.

Shredder’s Revenge is a side-scrolling beat ’em up based on the classic Turtles arcade games of the late 80s and early 90s, as well as the classic animated television show. The game features up to six player local and online multiplayer.

“TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is the game I dreamed of working on ever since I began watching the original cartoon and funneling coins into the TMNT arcade cabinets as a kid,” said Cyrille Imbert, CEO, Dotemu. “We are immensely grateful to Nickelodeon for the opportunity to honor an era of TMNT 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.”

Shredder’s Revenge was developed by Tribute Games.

“Tribute Games set out to make the ultimate celebration of a chapter in TMNT 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,” said Jean-Francois Major, co-founder, Tribute Games. “We’re thankful for all of the support and encouragement the passionate TMNT community has shown us since the reveal of TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, and we look forward to watching players continue to discover the easter eggs we’ve hidden throughout the game while chaining together some bodacious combos.”
