Quick, name a memorable modern Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. It’s ok if you can’t, those turtle teens peaked during the age of the four-player side-scrolling beat-em up, which is why it’s so exciting that Dotemu and Tribute Games have teamed up to make a completely new old game for PCs and consoles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.

There’s nothing broke about the beat-em up formula that made games like Turtles in Time arcade classics, so Dotemu and Tribute aren’t trying to fix it. Shredder’s Revenge takes perfectly pixellated versions of Donatello and his lesser brothers on a side-scrolling adventure that’ll take them from the sewers of New York City to Dimension X, because that’s what good TMNT games do. That, and splat members of the Foot Clan against the screen, like so.

That's the stuff.  (Screenshot: Dotemu) That's the stuff. (Screenshot: Dotemu)

No word on when the game is coming out, just that it’s coming soon to consoles and PC via Steam. To balance this sad lack of solid information, we have an announce trailer featuring the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon theme sung by Faith No More’s Mike Patton.


    • Leonardo: Stick up his butt.
      Michelangelo: Unreliable and annoying tween.
      Raphael: Sort of angry, I guess? Didn’t have much of a personality to be remembered by.
      Donatello: The guy who saved the day every time that brawn or pluck were not enough. And he still kicked arse, anyway.
