Last week, it was brought to light that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are getting a new game. Allow me to gush about it for a few minutes.
One of the most well-received Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games is Turtles in Time, originally an arcade and Super Nintendo game. A classic beat-’em-up style game, Turtles in Time was one of our favorites to play together. This new game — Shredder’s Revenge — brings homage to Turtles in Time with the retro style, familiar move sets and scenery, and of course the original theme song from the 80s cartoon.
If you haven’t gotten the chance to check out the trailer for the new game, here it is:
I first snuck the trailer in at work, keeping the volume muted, and I was delighted by the cartoon intro and the game’s graphics themselves. It looks so clean and crisp, and my delight doubled when I watched the trailer later to hear the cover of the original theme song.
The gameplay itself looks wonderful, with familiar move sets that are presumably updated for today’s audiences. One can even see the unique playstyles of the four main characters throughout the trailer, even including their run animations — I actually laughed at seeing Michelangelo’s run at around the 1:06 mark.
Unfortunately, we have this amazing trailer for the game but no other information. At this time, there’s no release date nor are there specific platforms that it is being released to other than stating “PC and consoles.” Considering how polished the trailer looks, I’m hoping we’ll get more information sooner rather than later. Perhaps the game will be added to our to-play list this year!
