Dotemu and Tribute Games released a video delving into the backstory of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge‘s development, from before the brawler was anything more than an idea.
In the video, Tribute Games’ studio Co-Founder Jean-Francois Major and Dotemu CEO Cyrille Imbert sit down and discuss their lifelong dreams of working on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, and how they managed to get the rights to do just that.
Major said, “Contributing to an iconic universe like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an incredible opportunity on any level, but even after completing a TMNT project years ago, I always held out hope that I’d be able to create an experience set in the original era that inspired so much of my childhood wonder. We finally found a partner that shares Tribute Games’ passion for the Heroes in a Half Shell’s debut. Getting to continue the legacy of the classic, beloved TMNT beat-em-ups that fans around the world grew up playing is surreal.”
Imbert added, “The reputation we’ve built with exceptional partners through modern classics like Streets of Rage 4 was vital to beginning our journey with Nickelodeon and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. Tribute Games clearly shares our passion for the world of TMNT. Their deep understanding and devotion to the essence of classic beat-em-ups makes them the perfect force to ensure Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is the evolution of brawling fans deserve.”
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is set to release for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC later this year. For more information, check out the video above.
