I saw this game at Launch Trampoline Park in Warwick, Rhode Island. Didn't get a chance to play, however. Maybe next time.

I hope it's at Game Works Las Vegas. You can bet I'll drop a few bucks into it.

I got one of these in the place I work at. I finally got to try it the other night after waiting all summer to do so. It was pretty fun, though, you do need at least 2 people playing to get the most out of it.

Sadly I can confirm it's not at the Game Works in Las Vegas. Kinda disappointing, as I was really hoping to find it there. They still had Turtles in Time though.

The Emerald Square Mall's arcade is named Funstar Family Fun Center, FYI.

I liked the game, but (oddly) I felt the continue countdown went by too fast. I didn't really have enough time to put in 4 more quarters. Has anyone else had that problem (with this game or any other arcade game, for that matter)?

Finally got to play this a week and a half ago with my wife and a friend. It was pretty awesome! I enjoyed the callbacks to the original arcade games and the playthrough itself was definitely fun, though it maybe felt a tad short. The ending *spoiler lol* was a little weird with April beating the hell out of and then kicking Shredder in the face, but it was still kinda funny and charming.

I'd definitely recommend a full playthrough if you're a fan of this incarnation of the franchise. Shame it came out so late, as I imagine it would've been hugely popular if it had dropped somewhere during the end of Season 3's run or the start of Season 4. I also thought it was weird that Splinter was noticeably absent from the game, as I don't really remember him being in it in any way. Overall, a great time at the arcade though. I'll definitely play it again sometime.

other than the fact that the tmnt video game library is a rights mess at this point, i don't see why it couldn't shouldn't happen.

Maybe someone should contact Limited Run Games about getting the rights to publish it for home consoles.

I am currently in vacation in salou, spain and have seen the raw Thrills tmnt Arcade cabinet twice here!!!played it Today in la pineda and it is incredible!!!!
I Support your hopes that someone makes a Conversion for home consoles of this game.(especially for the Nintendo switch)...however I have heard that the Developers of this game dont care for the home console market and only concentrate on making a superb arcade experience...
