Anyone who is a fan of the classic beat-em-up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles In Time will be happy with the latest announcement of Shredder's Revenge. The new title in the franchise is heavily inspired by the fan favourite game and is coming to consoles later this year.

Rendered in beautiful pixel art form based on their original 1987 design, the four heroes will battle against hordes of enemies in an attempt to thwart the iconic villain Shredder. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge is being worked on by Dotemu, the team behind the critically acclaimed Streets of Rage 4 from last year. Assisting them is Tribute Games, which consists of talent from developers who have worked on titles such as Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game. It seems like this is in the right hands.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge reunites Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello to kick shell in a beautifully realized pixel art world invoking the turtles’ classic 1987 design. Today’s announcement trailer perfectly encapsulates the Heroes in a Half-Shell’s rambunctious attitude as they leap and bash their way across Manhattan to a thumping rendition of their signature anthem belted out by Faith No More’s Mike Patton."

"With Bebop and Rocksteady amassing gizmos to support Krang and Shredder’s latest scheme, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge finds the turtles battling through a breathless tour of iconic TMNT locations to thwart their nemeses’ most diabolical plan yet. Armed with shell-shocking new abilities built on a foundation of classic brawling mechanics, the gang are in for an exhilarating, Foot Clan-stomping romp leading them through the sewers and bustling boroughs of New York City all the way to Dimension X."

The art style looks absolutely stunning and if last year's Streets of Rage 4 is anything to go by, this is going to be a fantastic continuation of the formula the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle games crafted. At the same time, it's looking to be a great entry point for new fans to dive into and embody their favourite heroes. There's no confirmed release date, but we'll be sure to keep you updated as soon as we know.
