  • Radical new story mode
  • And totally more to come!

 

Just announced today and making it's way to both consoles and PC, Shredder's Revenge looks to be a lovingly recreated and evolution of the classic Konami TMNT arcade games. From what it looks like, it takes aspects from every aspect of the classic games, including the arcade game, Turtles in Time, and even Hyperstone Heist. With that, it's also firmly taking place in the universe of the '80s Turtles.

According to IGN, it's also developed by several of the members of the team who developed the Scott Pilgrim game, which was another fantastic 16-bit beat 'em up, and it's being published by the same team that brought us Streets of Rage 4. Needless to say we seem to be in good hands here. There's no release date as of yet.

Given that the last game we got was Mutants in Manhattan, a game that (IMO) - was alright, but filled with issues, I absolutely can't wait for this game. Not the biggest fan of Beat 'Em Ups personally, but both the Simpsons Arcade and TMNT arcade games are exceptions, and I love the detail evoked by the gameplay thus far. The sprite work reminds me of Sonic Mania in that it takes a classic style, and evolves it with extra fluidity and style, while retaining what people liked about the original style. Given Scott Pilgrim's quality for a licensed game, I can't wait to see how this team tackles TMNT.

Looks really awesome, and I'm glad to see it is based on the original 80's Turtles. They're still my absolute favorites out of the bunch. The Ninja Turtle beat-em-up's were some of the first games of that genre I ever played, with Turtles in Time being my favorite. I even enjoyed the mediocre Turtles in Time Remake that used to be on PSN/XBL years ago, so I know I'll enjoy this one at least. It seems to have a lot more work put into it, and that sprite work is pretty gorgeous. I hope that April and Splinter are playable! It'd also be great if we could get the original TMNT actors back for this for cutscenes.

Kind of sounds like that singer has never heard the song before and wasn't even provided with sheet music to get the timing right.  Also I'm wondering if that animation was implying that April and Splinter would be playable, though the gameplay didn't show as much.

Beyond those issues: Well, it's another throwback beat-em-up; this time to the turtles.  I'm interested but I haven't seen much that makes it feel like a cut above the ones that inspired it.

I seldom get really excited over new games, but this one does the trick!

On another note, I'm glad that the TMNT franchise as a whole no longer seems to be ashamed of the 80's cartoon. For those who don't tknow what I'm talking about, there was a period in the 00's when it seemed that the TMNT franchise was trying to distance itself from the 80's cartoon as much as possible, for instance by not using elements created for the show, instead only taking inspiration from the original adult-oriented comics. The 2003 TMNT cartoon is a good example of this. No Krang, no Rocksteady and Bebop, and virtually no pizza obsession. Over the past decade or so however, the people behind the newest TMNT projects seem to have accepted the fact that the 80's cartoon is simply the most well known version of the Turtles and now seem to unashamedly appeal to the generation that grew up with it. And that's totally tubular!

In case anyone's wondering, YES, Tee Lopes is composing for this one. TEEnage Mutant Ninja Lopes.

Actually, even "TEE-LOPES Mutant Ninja Turtles" fits quite well (yes I'm humming this to the 80's tune now) 😂

The soundtrack has real Mania vibes from the trailer - it's enough of a to sell me (if the game wasn't enough of a sell already)

I'll be honest, I don't know if this was the same game I saw in the most recent indie report on the Switch, but I saw this and was like, i'm done with the indie report. I don't need to see anymore.

In other words, i'm totally excited.

Okay though, this is going to sound like a really dumb question, but i'm too young to remember the beat-em-ups from the 80's, so bare with me. Do you play as all 4 turtles, or do you control just one while the other three are computer controlled?

You only play as the turtle you pick if you're playing single player, if you're playing with other players either locally or online, however number of turtles are being played will be on screen (so for example, if you have two people, two turtles, three people, three turtles, etc).

Okay, I find that cool for some reason. :) Playing online sounds so much fun. Thanks for the answer.
