Starting today, players can take an arcade-style spin with a nostalgic twist as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is now available. This side-scrolling beat ’em up, inspired by the long-running franchise and its 1980s animated TV show in particular, was first announced in March of 2021. Since then, news and trailers alike were shared and it quickly became evident that this title would be a love letter of sorts to the classic TMNT games of generations prior. TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, developed by Dotemu and published by Tribute Games, is available on Xbox One – Game Pass included – as well as PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

What to Know Regarding Newest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is an arcade-style beat ’em up title that’s reminiscent of TMNT titles such as the 1989 arcade cabinet, Turtles in Time, and The Hyperstone Heist. While it can played solo, Shredder’s Revenge focuses heavily on local and online multiplayer alike. In fact, when online, six users can play simultaneously. Furthermore, in addition to the four classic turtles – Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello, Master Splinter, April O’Neil, and Casey Jones will also be playable. Each character has their own distinct fighting style, including super moves, and set of characteristics.
TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge can also be played in two modes: Arcade and Story Mode. Arcade Mode is in line with classic TMNT titles of its kind, providing the player with limited lives and requiring that the game be completed in one sitting. Meanwhile, Story Mode allows players to collect points that can be redeemed for health, extra lives, and additional techniques. Story Mode also seems to boast more replayability, featuring challenges to accomplish and collectibles to seek out.
