TMNT: Wrath of the Mutants arcade game coming to PC/Consoles

Post by Raging Justice »

Just recently learned of this thing's existence. It looks fun and everything I've seen online regarding the game seems to be positive. It makes me sad that there is no rom or console version of this. I think it's possible to buy the actual cabinet, but it doesn't come cheap.

My family and I have enjoyed it quite a bit over the years. Only complaint is that is feels like it's most of a "quarter eater" than most. (but I'm not sure if there are difficulty settings).

At our local place, where they do plastic cards for both game credits and reward tickets, it's really cool that this TMNT game actually supports giving tickets based on gameplay performance -- and actually pretty decent amount of tickets if you're a good player. It's so refreshing when most classic "video games" don't get ticket-minded kids any reward for playing. My kids to enjoy typical video games, but its easy for them to get sucked into the ticket mentality so they can "buy" things :)

Anyway, the game itself has always made a good impression on me -- has good production value and lives up to the legacy surprisingly well.
I would love to see a port / ROM of it surface someday, but I'm guessing it may be a while -- maybe once the game is less prominent in modern arcade settings.

There is a small bar/arcade down in Ocean Isle Beach that has/had that game.

Calling this a classic is ridiculous, but I'm thrilled that this is happening. They are doing it right too, the same way Konami did the ports of the other arcade TMNT games, with extra levels and bosses thrown in to make them BETTER than the arcade versions.

Have played this one a decent amount with my son at the local pizza arcade joint. Pretty fun.

We'll have to pick it up on Xbox at the 30 bucks price point. Good to hear they're adding content bc we usually make it past stage 3 fairly quick.

We enjoyed beating TMNT Shredders Revenge as a family & both kiddos watched this entire newer "cartoon" series this one is based on together.
