New Blip: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the sewers (or something), the frantic 4P TMNT beat 'em up action of the arcade is back with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, from Tribute Games. You may remember Tribute Games as the studio behind Panzer Paladin, Flinthook, and loads of other kickass 2D video games, and while Konami is off doing who-knows-what, Tribute is bringing their 2D pedigree and charming sprite art to everyone's favorite heroes-in-a-half-shell (turtle power!). So you'd have had to have been living under a rock(steady) to be unaware of the turtles or their famous arcade games (or cartoon, or originating comics, etc.), but just in case... you take on the role of one of four ninja turtles: Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Leonardo, as you go up against tons of foot soldiers, other mutant baddies, and the Shredder himself, with all of the 80's/90's cartoon glory perfectly preserved and character designs ripped straight outta Turtles in Time... there are no brooding angry Justice League wannabes here. This is classic gnarly brawler action for everyone who grew up with the radical arcade games or the SNES ports. These turtle boys don't cut 'em no slack!

The game is coming to PC, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One, but it does not yet have an announced release date.
