Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is, somehow, right around the corner. After what initially felt like an agonising wait, the game’s release was confirmed at last week’s Summer Game Fest 2022 Opening Showcase and will launch on the Switch on June 16th (yeah, that’s tomorrow, folks).
During an episode of YouTube series ‘Xbox Expansion Pass’, Narrative Designer Yannick Belzil at Tribute Games confirmed that there are no plans to introduce additional costumes to the game, stating that the animations required would take a long time to complete:
“For alternate costumes, it really was not thought of during production because we’re very proud of our animations, and the animations are really detailed, and they’re filled with character. They’re really animated with minute details, which means that making them takes a long time.
“I always thought that it’d be cool if the Turtles could be in trench coats and hats the way they were incognito in the old cartoons. But again, that would take a whole lot of time, and especially with our animators – like, they’d want the trench coat to be flowing, and you’d want it to be dynamic.”
In a subsequent tweet, however, CEO of publisher Dotemu – Cyrille Imbert – clarified that the develop never said “never” and states that if provided with the right ideas, then additional DLC may come to fruition later down the line.
For now though, it looks like the game we’ll be getting tomorrow will more or less be the complete package. Depending on your affinity with the TMNT franchise, you might see this as a good thing. As for us, we wouldn’t mind an additional characters or costumes at some point down the road!
