Cancelled sequel to Manhattan Missions (PC game)

As a collector of old media and gaming magazines, I sometimes get shocked to learn about things that could have been but never were. Case in point, I spotted an early solicit for a planned sequel to the old Manhattan Missions MS-DOS PC video game. The original game is very underrated and fairly unique in TMNT gaming lore. Anybody else think this sequel could have been awesome, if not a little too ambitious for 1992?



[Official Description from cancelled MS-DOS PC video game: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Manhattan Missions II: The Revenge (1992) ]
"Last year, the Big Apple need help in a big way. The rotten rascals and rogues of the Foot Clan had turned New York’s nightlife into a twilight of terror. But then you answered the call, together with the four most tubular Heroes in a Half Shell the world had ever seen. You battled evil mutants, malicious mobsters, wacked robots, and even space alien dinosaurs to bring back peace and pizza. Sorry to tell you, but you didn’t finish the job. What, did you really think it would be that easy?

The Shredder is back, and he’s looking up some of your old friends. That’s how the business of revenge works, after all. As you probably guessed, Old Tin Head isn't alone either. Battle the Foot Clan's baddest bosses to save your Master Splinter and your favorite bodacious babe April O'Neil. You can tackle the game's 12 maddening missions in an order of your choosing, but just remember that the clock is ticking on Shredder's plan to raise the Technodrome, Krang's titanic terrace of terror!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Manhattan Missions II: The Revenge is the newest action game from Konami, exclusively for your PC. And it’s totally original, combining the thrill of the arcade with innovative strategy and open-world elements sure to captivate PC gamers."

Does this game feature any thinly-disguised Phil Collins covers?

I think you'll appreciate the genius of the art layout even more after watching this video:

You can skip to the 14:44 mark for the DDII breakdown. Amazing that one entry in the series had such amazing artwork, as Double Dragon box art didn't have the best record going for it. [Explicit language warning]

"This triangle is respected."

I take it that's an April Fools joke?

Sure is!
Although I did recently update the piece to bring Casey Jones's right hand into better scale.

That's the trouble with one-day joke threads. Maybe a mob can weave this discussion into my normal fan art thread?

I appreciate that you actually put effort into it, unlike all of the other topics that were just joke title + "lol April Fools" in the body

Fan forums deserve a better class of prankster.

I guess he doesn't qualify as African American to cubed because he doesn't say things like "yessa massa", "sup dawg", "yo", "kill whitey" and "shee-it negro!"
