Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is getting a new game titled TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge inspired by the 1991 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time game. Shredder’s Revenge is a side-scrolling beat-em-up game from developer Tribute Games and publisher Dotemu.
Taking a retro pixel art direction, Shredder’s Revenge preserves the teenage mutants’ 1987 design and presents classic villains like Krang and Shredder. The game takes place in locations familiar to the TMNT universe, from the streets of New York City to Dimension X.
Publisher and developer Dotemu’s past titles include Streets of Rage 4 and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap. Tribute Games made the retro-inspired games Panzer Paladin, Flinthook, and Mercenary Kings. A few current members of the studio were also on the 2007 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for the Game Boy Advance.
The previous TMNT game made for consoles was released in 2016 and titled TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan. Developer PlatinumGames and publisher Activision made Mutants in Manhattan, a game that also struck true to TMNT’s beat-em-up roots.
Considering Shredder’s Revenge is made by an entirely different team, Mutants in Manhattan shouldn’t be indicative of anything for this new TMNT game. We’ll have to stay tuned for when Shredder’s Revenge is released–date unknown, currently–to see what it’s about.
Shredder’s Revenge will be available for PC and consoles.
