Since its reveal last year Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shredders Revenge has attracted a lot of attention and fans have been waiting with bated breath for a release date. During Summer Game Fest DotEmu and Tribute Games revealed that the game is set to drop on June 16th. Thats a lot sooner than many fans might have been expecting but its certain to make a lot of TMNT fans happy. The game has also revealed a new playable character Casey Jones. Earlier this year Rollin Bishop had the chance to speak with narrative designer Yannick Belzil about the possibility of Casey Jones appearing in the game. At the time Belzil seemed well-aware of the fan demand for Jones to appear.
People really want Casey Jones to be in the game. People love Casey Jones. So that would be a cool character. I feel like if we did not add Casey Jones as a DLC we would be ran down in the streets. We would have to change names. We would have to start whole new lives Belzil told For those unfamiliar with the game Revenge is a throwback to the classic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games released in arcades in the 90s. The Konami games have a passionate following among retro fans and will be appearing in a compilation game later this year. While the digital version of Shredders Revenge is set to release next week fans that prefer physical games will also have a number of options available across all platforms.
