Publisher Dotemu and studio Tribute Games, in partnership with Nickelodeon, have announced the release on Nintendo Switch of their retro-inspired action game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. The news was revealed as part of Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase and follows the announcement of the PC game. Hopefully, this means that gamers will also eventually get this on other consoles, in particular, the PlayStation 4 because if I can’t get this I’m going to be upset.
The co-founder of Tribute Games, Jean-François Major, and the CEO of Dotemu, Cyrille Imbert, announced the Switch version of the game, but he also unveiled new game sequences of the four turtles in action.
The shinobi siblings can be seen in this trailer stringing together special twirling moves and spicy combos in adorably retro environments. These locations are inspired in particular by classic TMNT games such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. Check out the trailer below if you don’t believe the hype.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge: A score as colourful as the turtles themselves
The furious fights of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge benefit from the creativity of Tee Lopes, who has notably composed and arranged the music for Sonic Mania (which is a hell of a game), League of Legends (I liked the music and that was it) and Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom (I do not like this game, it’s so god damn hard). A snippet of his incredibly energetic tunes can be heard in the gameplay trailer.
All of this from the score to the gameplay we have seen thus far makes it very exciting for any TMNT fan. I especially am looking forward to the differences each turtle bring to the battle. There are minute details such as each turtle has a distinct run (which is adorable) so I’m expecting many distinctions when the game releases later in the year.
