We don't know how long Splinter was running around after Yoshi was killed. Horribly simplifying all the evidence, but the main point is that it was "Three years ago I saw you die!" to Shredder in "Return to New York," and we know the TMNT are still only 16 (into 17) during "City at War." They could only have been 13 in #1.
