Upcoming side scrolling beat-em-up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will welcome Splinter as a playable character.
Publisher Dotemu has announced that the heroes in a half-shell’s mentor is the latest addition to the cast. He joins reporter and ally April O’Neil alongside our favourite foursome, complete with arsenal of Foot Clan kicking moves and trusty cane. You can check him out in action in the trailer below.
Expect lovely looking pixel-art environments based on the 80’s cartoon version of the series. Naturally, the game will support one to four players, and there’ll be an all-new story for you to get your flippers into. It’s looking delightfully faithful, and a lot of fun.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is a love letter to the classic side-scrolling beat-em-ups from the early 90s. Dotemu has plenty of experience in launching modern updates of retro classics, of course. Along the same lines, they released the excellent Windjammers 2 earlier this year, and 2020’s Streets of Rage 4.
Today’s announcement also confirmed platforms for the upcoming brawler. So we’re able to say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will land on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC at some point “this year”. Exactly when, we’ll have to wait and see.
