As a thirty-something who grew up playing Ninja Turtles on the Mega Drive, I get a little more excited with each new gameplay of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. And not only because the franchise is part of my childhood, but also because of the perspective of playing it with my three brothers locally, something that few games with this level of detail allow today.
It was not one of the big announcements from Gamescom 2021, but Dotemu released a new trailer for the game on Wednesday featuring reporter April O’Neil as the fifth playable character behind the four Ninja Turtles.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge It is a gift for those of us who loved Konami’s arcade from the 80s and its adaptations from the 90s. And although Streets of Rage 4 already brought back the genre beat-em-up (Everyone Against the Neighborhood) last year, the colorful pixel-art of this new title seems like a breath of fresh air. It seems to be a hilarious game, full of individual and team combos to finish off the rivals, in which the action does not stop.
To top it all, every character, vehicle, weapon, item and setting is directly inspired by the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series. Few games excite me that much right now, and the chance of seeing April O’Neil splitting back only increases. my enthusiasm. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will arrive on PC and Nintendo Switch in 2022.
