TMNT Konami Collection possible

Konami has recently did the Castlevania collection, Contra Collection, and arcade collections, Arcade 1up is doing the arcade machine meaning they can do ports, why not have a collection of the old Konami games? It could have the nes game, Arcade, Nes arcade since it has some new enemies, Manhattan Protect, Turtles in time, Hyper stone Heist, Snes turtles in time and Snes tournament fighters. If it is like the other collections it could have some neat concept art and behind the scenes interviews. I really like the old games and would really like them to come to modern hardware

I would absolutely be down with this too. The only obstacle I can think of though, given your examples above, is that the current collections have featured pure Konami properties.

TMNT is an IP licensed by Konami. So putting together a re-release collection of the TMNT games may not be as legally or financially feasible as putting together a Contra or Castlevania collection.

But I would love this. I downloaded the PS3 remaster of Turtles In Time as soon as it was released. I'd buy a collection of TMNT games even though I don't do much gaming anymore.

Well I am pretty sure Konami still has the rights to the TMNT games they made, Ubisoft had to ask konami permission to do the remake of turtles in time, and I believe arcade 1up said they had to get konami to agree for their new arcade cabinet. So as long as Viacom and Konami can agree I think this is best time for people to show interest in a collection.

A TMNT Konami games collection with:

TMNT (Arcade)
TMNT (NES)
TMNT III: Manhatten Project (NES)
Turtles in Time (SNES)
Tournament Fighters (SNES)
The two GBA games

Sure. I'd not mind it. And might as well add a few other titles, plus the Arcade version of Turtle of Time and I guess the Game Boy titles. Maybe even the console versions of the 2k3 games. If it wasn't too expensive it'd be a decent collection to own. Although there's only really 2 TMNT games that I'd call above average games: the first Arcade game and the SNES version of Turtles in Time.And even those are inferior to the best Streets of Rage and Final Fight games, imo.

And like IMJ already said, it would be harder to legally get the ball going. And would it even be worth the investment? None of the TMNT games sold 1M+ copies except for the first ever NES game, which sold very highly due to coming out in 1989 right around the time of the peak of Turtlemania... and the game wasn't that good and was also pretty damn frustrating. So I'm sure that game traumatised a lot of people of playing more Ninja Turtles games. It's BY FAR the most famous TMNT game of all time and 90% of people who grew up with it couldn't beat it or even get past the dam level or the third level. So I don't think that many people will want to revive such experience and people aren't gonna buy a collection of Turtles games just to have the ability to boot up Turtles in Time whenever they want to.

I would just be happy with a port that simply gave us every time the Turtles appeared in an arcade cabinet; with a toggle option to choose between updated CGi graphics or original, HD-ready pixel-sprites.

Yeah, we have a better chance of getting something out of WB Games, Konami would have to pay for both the rights for the IP and for the music used on the games, and they only care for Pachinko and mobile crap because of their low investment and huge returns.

So yeah, forget about Konami, unless someone else is willing to fork up the cash those games are as good as gone.
