Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge has finally been announced for Nintendo Switch, and it looks as incredible as you hoped!
The upcoming 2D brawler based on the 90s TV show was originally announced for PlayStation, Xbox and PC. However, we now know that the game is also coming to Nintendo’s handheld, thanks to this week’s Indie World Showcase.
Fans were somewhat surprised when the new Turtles game wasn’t announced for Switch, especially since Dotemu’s last game, Streets of Rage 4, made its way to the platform at launch.
Nintendo has a rich history when it comes to Ninja Turtles-themed games. The original Konami-developed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles title was one of the first-ever games based on the franchise. It was also followed by the likes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time, a Super Nintendo game that features a similar beat-em-up experience to that of Shredder’s Revenge. Of course, the Ninja Turtles have also featured on various other legendary consoles, from the SEGA Megadrive to Nintendo’s original handheld, the Game Boy.
Unfortunately, a physical version of Shredder’s Revenge is yet to be announced. However, Streets of Rage 4 did receive a swanky physical release, so perhaps the game won’t be a digital exclusive. That being said, the industry is rapidly moving towards its all-digital future, with games like The Medium failing to receive a physical release. Even the latest Oddworld game, Soulstorm, is only available digitally, with physical versions being held off until July.
Hopefully, Shredder’s Revenge will provide us with an authentic four-player experience on par with the original arcade games. The Nintendo Switch announcement was accompanied by a new gameplay trailer, which gives us a taste of the game’s tubular turtle action.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC sometime in 2021.
