Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge hearkens back to the good old days

Those who grew up in the 80s and 90s likely have a lot of love and nostalgia for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, not to mention their eight and sixteen-bit beat ’em-ups. Although the Nintendo Entertainment Games were cheap and difficult, they were a blast to play, as was Turtles in Time. The same goes for the arcade game, and its version of the latter title.

Tribute Games (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game) and DotEmu must also miss those days, because they’ve announced a brand new, sixteen-bit beat ’em-up starring the four pizza loving Turtles in a Half Shell. It’s called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, and it’s in development for consoles and PC.

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.

Promising retro-inspired, four player co-op, Shredder’s Revenge should be chock full of nostalgia. Being able to beat up familiar enemies, like Foot soldiers, Rocksteady and Bebop will also surely help in that respect.
