Everyone's favorite pizza-loving turtles are getting a new game! "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge" will be making its way to Nintendo Switch and on PC in 2022. The retro-style video game was introduced in Gamescom 2021's Opening Night Live event and April O'Neil is joining the four turtle brothers in the action.
'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge' Trailer
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge" is developed by Tribute Games and published by Dotemu, NME reported. The trailer presented in Gamescom 2021's Opening Night Live showed April O'Neil, a television news reporter and one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' human friends, as a playable character in the game.
April wears her iconic yellow jumpsuit, an outfit she wears in the 1987-1996 "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" animated series.

In "Shredder's Revenge," April can do far-reaching slide kicks and is quite agile. The one-minute trailer showed not only April's amazing solo fight moves but also how she fights with the other turtles, with one clip showing her and Leonardo taking down a bunch of bad guys with a little duo move where he threw her at the enemies like a super bowling ball.
April can take out legions of bad guys quickly and if any of the turtles find themselves in a situation, she's got their backs. Should Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, or Michaelangelo need any reviving, April's also got the trusty "power of pizza" to perk them back up.
The brawler's retro style is inspired by the Turtles design of the 19080s and the stylings of beat 'em up games of the 1990s, said NME.
Fans can expect "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge" to come out in 2022. Dotemu said, "Shredder's Revenge" will be available on PC, Nintendo Switch, and other consoles, which could mean Play Station consoles PS4 and PS5 will most likely get the game too, PlayStation Universe said. Dotemu is also the team behind "Streets of Rage 4," another retro-style brawler.
