New Tournament Fighters Rom hacks

The fighting game community at shoryuken forums are making SNES TMNT Tournament Fighters hacks and things are looking promising.

The first one is already done and is mostly the same game but adds some new palette colors being references to different adaptations but also some features that make it "friendlier" to play, here is a link to the game and.here is their Twitter





They plan to do other versions where they add new characters from the other Tournament Fighter games NES/Genesis and rebalance the game:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters: Championship Edition - Vanilla TMNT TF gameplay with lots of quality of life upgrades, 10 characters total. (Karai and Rat King OP and banned).
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Super Tournament Fighters: Reshelled (or some other punny name) - TMNT TF with rebalancing, 12 characters total (Karai and Rat King rebalanced).
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hyper Tournament Fighters: Punny name pending - New balance changes while leaving STF as it was, new story, 21 characters total (MegaDrive/Genesis cast: Krang, Casey, April, Zorax/Triceraton, Ray Fillet, Sisyphus - NES Cast: Hothead, Mona Lisa using NES Turtles moveset, and a brand new character tied into the new story)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ??? Tournament Fighters: Yet another punny name involving newer challengers - New balance changes while leaving HTF as it was, 22+ characters total (however many I can make before I run out of space / ideas / manpower / C&D'd / whatever)

Interesting stuff. I guess this is one thing to look forward to considering we'll never get a proper remake.

Considering that Mona Lisa will have the NES Turtles moveset, what will happen with the Genesis movesets, and Casey's (and Shredder's, if you count C. Shredder as him) NES movesets? Are the characters from Mutant Melee and Smash-Up given any higher priority than other newcomers?

So far as I know, there are no definite plans to add Mona Lisa to this project. Characters yet to be added included Rat King and an April O'Neil/Aska hybrid.

Whew - finally, my account was approved not too long ago. I'm Kosheh, the guy who worked on all those palette swaps (and I made sure to REALLY check my sources to pull from every nook and cranny of the TMNT universe!) Some of my other pals haven't gotten their accounts approved yet, so I'll do the best I can to answer any of the questions you guys might have. I did wanna clarify something though:

Since this post has been made, the lead programmer has appeared at EVO and revealed that Super TF will be a thing. So, basically it's more like:

Quote:
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters: Championship Edition:
- Vanilla TMNTTF SNES gameplay
- Several quality of life upgrades planned
- 10 usable characters total
** Special Tournament builds that limit ruleset to tourney legal stages and preset game options.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Super Tournament Fighters (working title):
- Roster is rebalanced, including Karai and Rat King
- All QoL changes from TMNTF:CE
- New original story: A new tournament has been organized, where the grand prize is a mysterious artifact, but many secrets lie under its lustrous glow
- New roster additions of characters from the other versions of TF: Krang, Casey, April, Triceraton, Ray Filet, Sisyphus, Hothead, Mona Lisa [NES Turtles moveset character], and more
- Slash confirmed
We'll be updating the games based on player feedback.

In Casey's case, we'll be turning him into a hybrid of both the NES and Genesis characters with some additional tweaks to keep him as cohesive as possible within TMNTTF SNES' mechanics.
On the second question - TMNTTF SNES celebrates the different aspects of the TMNT universe from that time, and the roster will be sure to maintain that consistency. In other words, the cast consists the characters from the Mirage comic series up until the end of the Murakami-Wolf television series run (we promise Venus isn't in the game)

There's actually two TMNT fan projects going on in the same Discord channel and I think you might've referenced the other one on accident here (TMNT x Justice League)
- Mona Lisa is in! She's basically the NES Turtles wrapped into one character [weaponless combat]
- April O'Neil and Aska are still two separate characters; rest assured, April won't feel cloney in the least and she definitely won't look like Aska. I don't have the art onhand, but the character's overall look is basically the MD/GEN TMNTTF character but actually looks like the April you remember from this era.

If you guys have any additional questions, let me know! However, there are some things I can't reveal because we want to keep some awesome surprises under wraps for you guys and the FGC!
