Dotemu continues its trip down memory lane with another retro-inspired game coming to consoles and PC later this year.
Dotemu and Tribute Games, in partnership with Nickelodeon, have announced that they’ll be releasing a brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for consoles and PC – and it looks dope as hell.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is being developed by Tribute Games and published by Dotemu, who also helped develop and publish the amazing Streets of Rage 4 last year.
TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is inspired by the arcade games of the ’80s, with the turtles taking on their classic 1987 cartoon design rather than the over-realistic Michael Bay abominations that still haunt my nightmares. Looking at the trailer, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was a straight-up re-release of one of the original side-scrolling beat-em-up arcade games.
There’s no Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge release date at this time, but watch this space for more news in the near future.
“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.”
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge joins two retro gaming experts: Dotemu, the developer and publisher known for faithful ports as well as impeccable remakes and continuations of beloved gaming series including Streets of Rage 4, the smash hit nominated for Best Action game at The Game Awards 2020, as well as the upcoming Windjammers 2 and highly lauded Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap; and Tribute Games, the studio behind retro-themed original IPs including Panzer Paladin, Flinthook and Mercenary Kings which embody the spirit of classic games in new experiences. Tribute Games also houses key talent behind the acclaimed Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game beat-em-up and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game released for Game Boy Advance in 2007.”
