"Ever since we started releasing collections, the response from our fans has been emphatic on what we should do next – “Give us the Turtles!”," explains Charles Murakami, senior producer at Konami via the PlayStation Blog. And as part of March's PlayStation State of Play event it was revealed Konami would be doing just that alongside Nickelodean and Digital Eclipse, collecting 13 games ranging from the 8-bit, 16-bit and arcade eras of the Turtles IP.
This is the first time outside of some hardcore fan's ROM library such a collection has been brought together, and what this has over that is added flash by way of "quality of life features" that include save anywhere, a rewind function and throwback artworks and historical info, alongside updated visuals and presentations.
Our partners at Nickelodeon provided amazing imagery from the original cartoons series and comic books and helped connect the franchise from the different mediums. While bringing our heroes in a half shell back to the surface, we were immediately taken back to a time where we grabbed three other friends to save April from a burning building, struggled to swim through obstacles and prevent the dam from exploding, or discovered that there were secret areas where Casey Jones slammed Raphael into the ground.There's no specific date beyond "2022" named as part of the reveal, but since we've waited 30-odd years for this collection, we can wait a little bit longer. Here's what you get:
Sweet, I was hoping it had both arcade and SNES versions of Turtles in Time (I clocked both)!
Nice, TMNT: Turtles in Time is imo a 'perfect' game. The controls are intuitive with enough complexity to make it interesting. The gameplay is fun, the art style is very cool and the little details in the game (like falling down a sewer or eating pizza as a power up). The boss fights are as and the difficulty is great for casual play.
Two player is were it's at.
