Like i said in the TMNT games section, I'm pleasantly surprised by this announcement. Never would I imagine this day would come. And it turned out even better than I had expected to with 13 games.

Definitely getting this for the Switch. Having TMNT Arcade game, Turtles in Time, Manhattan Project and SNES Tournament Fighters all on the same console and being able to play them on the go? Sweet!

Maybe a Volume 2 if this goes well?

Turtles in Time Arcade just has a Clayface boss in the Dinosaur stage instead of Slash, and it's missing a few levels like the Technodrome and Sewer Stages the SNES version has.

I wonder if the Tournament Fighters games will include the input moves for the special moves in the pause menu, some of them are pretty obscure to use...otherwise time to pull out gamefaqs to look at the special move guide as if it's 1997!
Is there even any evidence they will somehow edit these games in any way, beyond surface level "turn on smoothing" maybe? Because the trailer just seems like these are purely the ROMs themselves that have been available to everyone since about 2000 plugged into the same kind of emulators that have been available to everyone since also about 2000 but just with maybe a flashy background to not make a box look weird on your new TV.

Unlikely considering 2k3 lacks the nostalgia and marketability of this era of TMNT. Their games never made noise the way these games did and are much too big and complicated to be thrown into a compilation like this, let alone with their handheld counterparts which would be an afterthought, as if the games themselves weren't already.

Yeah. I think the first requirement might be that they needed to be profitable the first time around at least.

Though hey. If they threw even those games in there... the 4Kids ones and maybe the 2007 ones... I might give it a go just to finally try those because they're too much trouble to emulate and my interest level to try is too low.

I hope there's some extra stuff for my favorite TMNT game, TMNT 3: Radical rescue.

If Konami actually went in and somehow edited old Gameboy ROMs that'd be pretty impressive. But highly doubtful. This just seems like some kind of mainframe with menus utilizing different emulators to access ROMs that have been readily available for eons.

I wouldn't be remotely surprised if there was the same game glitches, too, like TMNT 1 NES.

And wow, TMNT 1 NES. Give that one a full remake, like the full-on FFVII Remake treatment. Every mode in it (the regular mode, driving the Turtle Van, the swimming), to modern standards. I'd play that in a heartbeat. It was the only game that actually tried to be a TMNT game.

Three out of four 2k3 games are all available on PC and TMNT 2007 game was not made by Konami, but by Ubisoft, so its unlikely it can be included into any collection. And there is no problem with emulating PS2 at all, unless your machine is a potato from middle 00s.

Yeah, and beat'em ups were just whatever, lol.
Imagine being salty about games released 30+ years ago.

Re-Shelled will probably never see the light of day again.

The description says there's an HD texture pack, there might be an ability to switch between the original look of the games and a "remaster." The Street Fighter II port on PS3 back in the day had this too, where you could play in the original version or the HD re-drawn sprites they did.

Also some of you need to realize that this is a Konami collection, games that Ubisoft made will obviously not be on this. Ubi-soft made "TMNT Re-Shelled" so of course that won't be included. I own it on PS3 and it's a poor remake, so it's no big loss. Ubisoft also made the GBA game based on the 2007 movie, and even though it was the best 2D Turtle game of the 2000's, it obviously can't be included.

I can’t believe Tournament Fighters has online play. This is so cool.
I don’t think I’ve ever played the NES version, and I’ve only played the Genesis version briefly. Curious as to how they stack up against the SNES version.

Other then that, I’m looking forward to playing the arcade game again. I seem to remember liking that one more than TiT & HH, both of which I’ve played too many times anyway.

I’ve also heard good things about Manhattan Project.

NES Tournament Fighters has really good game play for an 8 bit fighter. Each character has two specials moves and a lot of basic attacks. Also Casey Jones and Hot Head are playable making a very unique roster.

I loved how the Tournament Fighter games picked such unique roster characters instead of going with the usual mainstream picks. Can't believe we got Ray Fillet in the Genesis version, Hot Head in NES, and Armaggon, Wing Nut, War and Chrome Dome in SNES with Rat King and Karai as unlockables.

The roster picks were hardcore and seeing Archie characters get love in the 90's was crazy.

that's sad. IT had SOME good things going for it.

If they had just fixed the gameplay mechanics and made better music, it would have been a decent remake.

TMNT III is a completely different game than the Arcade game, it's a full blown sequel with all new stages, bosses and story.

This caught my attention from the Playstation blog post:

Quote:
While bringing our heroes in a half shell back to the surface, we were immediately taken back to a time where we grabbed three other friends to save April from a burning building, struggled to swim through obstacles and prevent the dam from exploding, or discovered that there were secret areas where Casey Jones slammed Raphael into the ground.
That last part... what?

Is that a reference to Manhattan Missions on the PC?

TiT Reshelled got a lot of early hype, but what killed it were various factors, the music they went with was not great, even if they had to change it other options were better.

The 2k3 VAs replacing the voices were fine, the graphics at the time we're good enough for a digital title, it was cool to see those levels in 3D. The artwork for the story segments were fantastic. The modern redesigns of some characters was also fresh, especially in that era where mutants were prohibited by Laird.

But they decided to do a 1:1 remake of TiT arcade version, this wasn't a port, they could've added all the extra content of the SNES version without a problem to make a definitive version, hell they could've added new levels even if taken from the first arcade game. The gameplay being in 3D obviously didn't feel as tight as the 2D game but that's to be expected, a few tweaks could've helped. The worst offence was not including a port of the original game, had that been included it would've shut up most criticisms since at the very least you could still okay the original if you wished.

I thought this was the case for the same reasons you list but after seeing the crazy big response this compilation got if this outsells expectations by s lot then Konami will want to do everything to release a follow up and those are the only games they have left.

Especially possible if they have the TMNT license in general to rerelease games already and it wasn't just for those specific ones which seems to be the case.

Granted it's easier to release the fist compilation since they already had emulators for those consoles made for the Konami and Castlevania collections and emulating PS2 is far more difficult. But if sales are big enough they might just try it to cash in even if they know 2k3 isn't as popular.

I really hope you're right. I did enjoy the 2k3 games for what they were. Playing those games as a teenager gave me just as fond memories as I had with the older games as a kid.

This announcement is one of the few good things to come out of the Paramount Global (formerly Viacom) sale.

What 3 games are you most looking forward to?
I’d include Tournament Fighters and the arcade game in my list, but third is up in the air. Probably Turtles in Time.
