Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge Evokes the Franchise’s ’80s Heyday


Tribute Games and DotEmu have announced they’re working on a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game meant to be evocative of the series’ 1987 animated series.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will put you and up to three other friends in the shells of all four of the titular reptiles in a cooperative beat ’em up. DotEmu recently released Streets of Rage 4, and Tribute Games is led by former Ubisoft employees that made the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World game, so these teams together are well-suited for the beat ’em up genre.

Shredder’s Revenge will feature levels harkening back to several locations and enemies from throughout Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ history, all in the name of stopping Shredder’s latest evil plan.

With Bebop and Rocksteady amassing gizmos to support Krang and Shredder’s latest scheme, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge finds the turtles battling through a breathless tour of iconic TMNT locations to thwart their nemeses’ most diabolical plan yet. Armed with shell-shocking new abilities built on a foundation of classic brawling mechanics, the gang are in for an exhilarating, Foot Clan-stomping romp leading them through the sewers and bustling boroughs of New York City all the way to Dimension X.

Check out the reveal trailer, which contains not only some footage of the game in action, but also a pretty sweet animated intro.

Shredder’s Revenge will come to PC and unspecified consoles, but has no release date as of yet.

In other news:

TMNT is no stranger to video game adaptations, but it’s been a minutes since the adolescent ninjas had a console game all to themselves. The last game that wasn’t a mobile game starring the four brothers was 2016’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. The turtles also appeared as playable characters in Injustice 2, for some reason.
