April O’Neil is known more for her reporting than combat moves. But in the upcoming beat ‘em up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge, the turtles’ iconic yellow-suited friend will throw down alongside the heroes in a half shell. Check out the Shredder’s Revenge April O’Neil gameplay trailer just released at gamescom 2021 during Opening Night Live. Make sure you stick around to the very end, as there’s a treat waiting for you. And Michelangelo.
April O’Neil will be available as a playable character when the game releases in 2022. She’ll wield her reporting gear like weapons, as well as kick and punch the foot clan in their masked faces. According to the press release, she’ll excel at closing the distance with enemies quickly with her long-reaching slide kicks. She certainly knows how to swing a camera too. I thought it was a hammer at first.
A true classic
In Shredder’s Revenge, you’ll take the turtles and April O’Neil around New York to give the foot clan a beat down. You’ll also get to venture to some of the series’ most iconic locations, including Dimension X – the home of Krang. Of course, you’ll also get to lay the smackdown on everyone’s favorite warthog and rhino, Bebop and Rocksteady. And, at some point, you’ll need to face Shredder.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is a nod to the classic Ninja Turtles beat ‘em ups of years gone by. From the pixel art graphics to the classic gameplay, and even the retro, yet modern soundtrack. The developer, Dotemu, is known for faithful ports of classic games. And it continues to deliver with its continuation of Streets of Rage 4. Suffice it to say, they know what they’re doing and you should be excited about Shredder’s Revenge.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge doesn’t have a specific release date yet. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long into 2022. For now, you check out the game on Steam.
