Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge coming to Switch this year
The throwback brawler from Tribute Games and DotEmu is confirmed for Nintendo's console. YES!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge will arrive on Nintendo Switch later this year, Tribute Games and publisher Dotemu announced yesterday as part of Nintendo's Indie World presentation. The game had already been previously announced for PC.
The famous turtles have appeared in a number of games over the years, including a beloved arcade game that has inspired most efforts to follow it. That game, a four-player brawler, appears--along with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time--to provide the primary inspiration for the newer effort, which also is a four-player brawler.
Visuals are only part of the package, and the game will benefit from original music from composer Tee Lopes, best known for previous work on the likes of Sonic Mania, Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom and even League of Legends.
Confirmed to appear in the game are of course the four turtles themselves (the artistically inclined Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo and Donatello), along with familiar villains such as Bebop and Rocksteady. Their battles will take them through a variety of locations, including Dimension X.
Tribute Games has ample experience developing retro-style games, thanks to its work on original properties such as Panzer Paladin, Flinthook and Mercenary Kings. The diminutive studio also houses key talent behind Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, a well regarded brawler most famous for becoming unavailable for several years until fan demand prompted its recent return.
DotEmu is a publisher and developer known for Streets of Rage 4 and Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, and is also hard at work on Windjammers 2.
Numerous studios, including Konami itself, have attempted to recapture the magic of the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade games, but those efforts have for the most part fallen short by anywhere from a little to a lot. Like... a lot. So here's hoping the capable folks involved in this latest revival attempt will find all the success one can hope for as they bring back TURTLE POWER!
