Master Splinter has been revealed as a playable fighter in the highly anticipated upcoming beat ’em up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, releasing on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One later this year. You can check out a new trailer above and read below for more details:
PARIS (Feb. 10, 2022) – Publisher Dotemu and developer Tribute Games in partnership with Nickelodeon today announced Master Splinter is bringing his command of ninjutsu to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge as a playable character. Master Splinter’s debut arrives alongside confirmation of the game’s release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, in addition to the previously announced PC and Nintendo Switch, later this year.
Master Splinter’s calm, thoughtful nature makes him more collected than most of his green pupils, but his mastery of ninja arts ensures that he’s a formidable powerhouse. He dishes out particularly powerful attacks with his trusty staff and wide-reaching special ninja moves, bashing through groups of enemies as efficiently as the Turtles chowing down on a pizza.
Inspired by the Turtles’ iconic 1987 design, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge brings New York City’s most righteous ninjas to life with gorgeous pixel art that’d look right at home in your favorite retro arcade. From showdowns with infamous rivals like Bebop and Rocksteady to returns to signature locales like Dimension X, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is a bodacious celebration of classic TMNT beat-em-ups with its own modern touches.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge joins two retro gaming experts: Dotemu, the developer and publisher known for faithful ports as well as impeccable remakes and continuations of beloved gaming series including Streets of Rage 4, the smash hit nominated for Best Action game at The Game Awards 2020, as well as the exhilaratingly competitive Windjammers 2 and the highly lauded Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap; and Tribute Games, the studio behind retro-themed original IPs including Panzer Paladin, Flinthook and Mercenary Kings which embody the spirit of classic games in new experiences. Tribute Games also houses key talent behind the acclaimed Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game beat-em-up and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game released for Game Boy Advance in 2007.
