Cowabunga! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge has already sold more than a million copies across PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge – which was released to glowing reviews in June – has already sold more than one million copies, says publisher Dotemu.
The multiplayer brawler was developed by Tribute Games and is a return to arcade basics that taps into the franchise’s first wave of 1980s popularity. The game sees Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello battle the dastardly Shredder with help from fan-favourite characters Splinter, April O’Neil and Casey Jones.
The success of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is all the more notable as we assume Xbox Game Pass players are not counted.
Speaking about the launch, Dotemu CEO Cyrille Imbert says:
“TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is the game I dreamed of working on ever since I began watching the original cartoon and funneling coins into the TMNT arcade cabinets as a kid. We are immensely grateful to Nickelodeon for the opportunity to honor an era of TMNT that profoundly impacted the lives of everyone at Dotemu, and to our friends at Tribute Games for expertly capturing the classic thrill of the Turtles’ battles with the Foot Clan in a new experience that feels completely fresh and exciting to play.”
Tribute Games co-founder Jean-Francois Major adds.
“Tribute Games set out to make the ultimate celebration of a chapter in TMNT history that means the world to us, and it’s been wonderful to watch the accessible fun of beat-em-ups resonate with longtime fans and genre newcomers alike. We’re thankful for all of the support and encouragement the passionate TMNT community has shown us since the reveal of TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, and we look forward to watching players continue to discover the easter eggs we’ve hidden throughout the game while chaining together some bodacious combos.”
It’s a great time to be a Turtle Head. The 23-game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection is also due for release later this year.
