Update [Thu 21st Apr, 2022 16:45] Dotemu has also now confirmed that the game will be getting a multi-region physical release post-launch. Limited Run Games will be handling the North America version, while Merge Games will ensure Europe also don't miss out. Happinet and H2 Interactive will be handling Japan and the rest of Asia respectively. [Thanks for the tip, Magician!]
And if you're concerned about these released being limited edition, don't be. Josh Fairhurst of Limited Run Games confirmed separately on Twitter that "Our release will be a distributed release that will be available at major US retailers like Amazon".
Oh, and one more thing to get excited about — Tee Lopes' music is already sounding incredible in the trailers and the gameplay, but we'll be able to get the soundtrack digitally as soon as the game launches! We'll share the physical release, and the pricing, as soon as we see them!
Original article [Wed 20th Apr, 2022 16:15 BST] Dotemu and Tribute Games have narrowed down the release window for the highly-anticipated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge. Previously, the game was slated to hit some time this year, but it looks like pizza parties in the sun while kicking shell will be on the menu for many fans of the four turtles.
To accompany this announcement, IGN has shared some exclusive gameplay from Shredder's Revenge. The video shows the game's first two stages — Channel 6 Studios and the Streets of New York. TMNT fans will be very familiar with these, as Channel 6 is the studio where April O'Neil works in the 1987 cartoon. it looks like the perfect evolution of the classic games, with attacks reminiscent of those from the arcades, as well as brand-new combos and special attacks.
Keen fans will no doubt recognise something very special if they hear past the incredible music — the original voice cast from the 1987 cartoon has returned to voice the turtles. Cam Clarke (Leonardo), Townsend Coleman (Michelangelo), Barry Gordon (Donatello), and Rob Paulsen (Raphael) are all here, and together, they're helping Dotemu and Tribute Games' vision to recreate the feel of that very show. We can't wait to find out who else might be returning to voice the rest of the show's iconic characters.
Summer helps narrow this one down a ton, but we're still itching to find out exactly when we can kick Shredder's butt. As soon as we know, you'll know too. In the meantime, let us know what you think of the gameplay in the comments.
