If you’ve been waiting patiently to head back to hear more about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, your time is now.
Tonight I dine…
Shredder’s Revenge has seemingly been forever in the making, though actually it was just announced about a little over a year ago. Maybe that’s a testament to just how good Dotemu and Tribute Games’ new side-scroller is looking. Because, and this goes double if you’re old enough to remember the TMNT’s original arcade run, it looks drop dead gorgeous.
And if you’re getting antsy, well it turns out that your time is almost here. Dotemu dropped a ton of new info about the game today, including a release date that puts it at… June 16th. Yep, in one week. That’s just the tip of the iceberg though, as there’s a triple-dose of key info to talk about today.
Chiefly, and I’m sure you saw this one coming, is word that Casey Jones will indeed be playable. Time to lay out some Foot.
A brand new trailer showcasing the eagerly anticipated playable character Casey Jones, the Turtles’ spirited ally determined to clean up the streets of New York City, debuted onstage during Summer Game Fest. Casey’s balance of range, speed and power makes him a formidable all-around threat as he swings through flanks of Foot Clan soldiers with his signature hockey stick. Casey Jones is an unlockable character.Dotemu press release
As you can see there, arriving right along with Casey will be a 6 player mode. And even better, you don’t have to be in the same room to play. While that arguably remains the best way to play a game like this, Shredder’s Revenge will support online 6 player action. And before you ask, yes, you can drop in or out at any time.
Get psyched, TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge arrives on the Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 16th.
