Thirty years later, we're finally getting a sequel (of sorts) to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. Recently publisher Dotemu and game developer Tribute Games revealed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge, described as "a classically informed side scrolling beat-em-up directly inspired by classic TMNT games."
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge has been announced for PC and consoles. It's four-player co-op beat-'em-up in the classic Konami style — that is, the style of side-scrolling brawler, developed by members of the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game team.
As seen in the game's debut trailer, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello will take on classic enemies like the Foot Clan, Bebop, and Rocksteady in their new side-scrolling adventure.
Inspired by games like 1991's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge offers a classic pixelated art style and "shell-shocking new abilities built on a foundation of classic brawling mechanics." Players will fight through "a breathless tour of iconic TMNT locations" such as the NYC sewers and Dimension X to thwart Bebop, Rocksteady, Krang and Shredder.
The trailer for Shredder's Revenge also debuts a new take on the famous TMNT theme song, performed by Faith No More's Mike Patton.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge will be published by Dotemu in association with Nickelodeon, and is being developed by Tribute Games, whose previous work includes Flinthook and Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Edition.
Since its inception in 2007, publisher Dotemu has leaned heavily into classic game nostalgia with retro remakes and sequels such as Streets of Rage 4, Windjammers 2, and Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap.
A release date for the game was not provided yet.
