Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge Announced From Dotemu and Tribute Games

Out of nowhere, you could even say out of the shadows, comes news that Tribute Games (Panzer Paladin) and Dotemu (Streets of Rage 4) have teamed up with Nickelodeon to create a brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is heading to consoles, however, at the moment we don’t know which ones. It will also make its way to the PC. While details are sparse, we can confirm that the game will include both local and online co-op according to the Steam page description.


Here’s what Tribute Games had to say about the chance to work on their dream game.

Publisher Dotemu and developer Tribute Games in partnership with Nickelodeon today announced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge for PC and consoles, a classically informed side scrolling beat-em-up directly inspired by classic TMNT games like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge reunites Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello to kick shell in a beautifully realized pixel art world invoking the turtles’ classic 1987 design. Today’s announcement trailer perfectly encapsulates the Heroes in a Half-Shell’s rambunctious attitude as they leap and bash their way across Manhattan to a thumping rendition of their signature anthem belted out by Faith No More’s Mike Patton:
With Bebop and Rocksteady amassing gizmos to support Krang and Shredder’s latest scheme, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge finds the turtles battling through a breathless tour of iconic TMNT locations to thwart their nemeses’ most diabolical plan yet. Armed with shell-shocking new abilities built on a foundation of classic brawling mechanics, the gang are in for an exhilarating, Foot Clan-stomping romp leading them through the sewers and bustling boroughs of New York City all the way to Dimension X.

It’s clear the team behind Shredder’s Revenge has fond memories of the original arcade classic and has emulated a lot of that same magic here. I love the attention to detail that’s being shown, such as how each turtle has a unique running animation. The 16-bit visuals harken back to the franchise’s glory days in the 90s while still utilizing some of the more recent enhancements. To put it bluntly, this game looks great.

As of yet, no release date for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge has been listed but it shouldn’t be long before we have one. I personally can’t wait to beat up the Foot Clan with friends again. Especially after some of the more recent entries have left a lot to be desired. It’s nice to see such a loving return to form and I will be there on day one.
