The Ninja Turtles never finished leaving. It is one of those franchises that since its birth and the appearance of its first games, has always been present in video games. The colorful and bomb-proof sympathy of their characters, their ability to reinvent themselves and their simple but forceful characteristics (differentiated personalities, different weapons, the charismatic nature of their enemies, the urban component) has given them success after success, evolving but always remaining. faithful to its origins.
It is precisely to those origins that this new ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle: Shredder’s Revenge’ goes back, a traditional brawler that recalls above all the mythical recreational Konami and the sensational ‘Turtles in Time’, from arcade and Super Nintendo . And that collects all the tradition of street fighting games of the ninja chelonians, with cooperative play for four players. It will arrive throughout 2021 for PC and consoles.
The truth is that this new title comes with a pedigree in tow: its managers are two studios that in recent times have attracted attention for their traditional game mechanics and intelligent adaptation to new times. Dotemu are responsible for excellent updates on classic franchises, such as the highly acclaimed ‘Streets of Rage 4’ or the sensational ‘Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap’.
And on the other hand we have Tribute Games, who have created games with an indisputable retro flavor, such as’ Mercenary Kings’, but above all, it is remarkable that part of those responsible have worked on the magnificent ‘ Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game ‘and in the best game of the turtles: the’ TMNT ‘of Game Boy Advance. Both studios have launched a game that promises to recover classic scenes and enemies from the franchise and they start with the first surprise: a trailer that drinks from the animated series and with the main theme reinterpreted by Mike Patton (Faith No More).
