Once a Classic, Always a Classic
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is an upcoming action game, that will be released in 2021 exclusively for PCs and the Nintendo Switch. Developed by Tribute Games (Panzer Paladin, Mercenary Kings: Reloaded Edition), and published by Dotemu (Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, Samurai Showdown II), the new game will be based upon the characters from the animated series.
The game, like their antecessors, will be a side-scrolling beat ‘em up that even replicates the visuals of one of the franchise’s most successful titles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist.
Even as a clear tribute to its origins, at least from a visual standpoint, the game promises to present groundbreaking gameplay to the genre. Expanding upon the pixelated and 2D animated aesthetic, Dotemu and Tribute Games ensured that animations, combos, and combat felt unique to each one of the turtles.
As Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo, and Michelangelo make a new appearance on PCs and Nintendo Switch so does the co-op multiplayer mode that became a staple of classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games. Fans of the animated series will also be very pleased to see that not only the pixelated, arcade-y feeling of the game isn’t the only thing familiar. Creators ensured that every NPC, vehicle, weapon, item, and background is reminiscent of the TV show.
With fan-favorite villains making appearances throughout the game, players will assume one of the four brothers as they investigate and try to stop an impending villainous plan from happening. Players are asked to investigate the latest invasion of Channel 6 by Bebop and Rocksteady, as they slash, and dash through iconic locations in New York City. As players progress, the events from Channel 6 unveil a much more sinister plan being orchestrated by Krang and Shredder.
With the promise of four-player simultaneous co-op, and diverse gameplay options, this side-scroller seems like a treat for older fans, and newcomers as well. The game has the full support of Nickelodeon, and players are promised the witty humor and banter that made the cartoon a hit. From reveals, we can also expect frantic action, and fast-paced combat throughout the title, with friends or alone.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, might look like their older brothers, but it promises to deliver new features and a unique story. Creators of the game already have vast experience with side-scrollers, beat ‘em ups, and even Triple-A titles, which raise the expectation bar for fans of the classic cartoon. For those who are unfamiliar with the TV Show, getting involved or even interested might not be straightforward, but it will take little research to see how smart, funny, and cool the characters from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles always were.
For those who have played and enjoyed Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition, Ori and the Blind Forest, Skul: The Hero Slayer, and Shovel Knight, this is a great addition to your wishlist. Set to release soon, you will have the opportunity to experience a classic title, based upon a classic TV Show!
