In a better timeline we'd be playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge right now, but we'll just have to take the cards we're dealt. Still due 'this year', publisher Dotemu has revealed another trailer and iconic character for the upcoming beat 'em up.
Of course it's Master Splinter, who is a surprisingly nifty fighter for an elderly rat. As you can see in the trailer he's got some power moves and can even throw his students around in multiplayer.
Master Splinter’s calm, thoughtful nature makes him more collected than most of his green pupils, but his mastery of ninja arts ensures that he’s a formidable powerhouse. He dishes out particularly powerful attacks with his trusty staff and wide-reaching special ninja moves, bashing through groups of enemies as efficiently as the Turtles chowing down on a pizza.
We're very much looking forward to getting hold of this game; before that though we're patiently awaiting the Casey Jones reveal - go on Dotemu, you know it makes sense...
