Unless we start seeing weird stuff like Karai and Hun as bosses, which I doubt.
I wouldn't be surprise if they added the stuff from the movies also. If they wanna hit you with the nostalgia, We would have to see bosses like Tokka and Rahzar as well.

Music reminds me a tad of Tournament Fighters.

Most likely the bosses will be a mix of the classic games:

Shredder
Krang
Bebop
Rocksteady
Baxter
Leatherhead
Rat King
Rahzar/Tokka
Metalhead
Slash
Giant Mousers
General Traag

If they want to throw in some curveballs I'd love to see Tempestra, Lord Dregg, Chrome Dome, Armaggon, etc.

The game will probably be $24.99 if Streets of Rage 4 was any indication. A little steep for this kind of game and I'd prefer $19.99, but this is one of the few games I'd buy for full price anyway.

It is not people's fault nor developers. No-one (without limitless amount of money) gonna make a game based on TMNT version most people don't know or don't care about.
I'm not saying that it necessarily needs a 2003, 2013 or 2018 style to it, but NOT the 1987 one. It's old, NOBODY these days care about what happened 30 years ago, and as I said, it will only attract long time fans of the Fred Wolf version, who are more than 25 years old, and don't have either time or interest in playing that much time with a videogame. Maybe a new unique style for the game, like it happened for Mutants in Manhattan (even tho it still had Fredwolf's characters in it).

Can't deny it, pixel art can effectively have an identity. But the problem is still there: alot of people use it. Is not new, that's all, it looks like is trying in a very struggle like way to get attention.

So what? Wanna fight?! I played the pre-alpha beta, GAMMA, because I stole the source code with my spying and hacking abilities! I can say it sucks from the beginning!

Jokes apart, my comment was about the design I've seen so far, since I clearly wrote that I can't judge it in on the gameplay. But again, Turtles games never actually made me say "OH MY GOD THAT'S AN INTERESTING GAMEPLAY", so may I have a little bit of judgement?

The only thing I like, are the expressiveness of the characters, that's it.

Yet, most people at least aware of this version existence, which is more than can be said about TMNT'03 and most others.

Do you know that making sprites is much more complicated than making a 3D models?

But, of course, developers, choose more time consuming and harder process, just to attract attention. No biggie!

Mate, sometimes its better to stay silent, than saying something.

Also, pixel 2D games are very tiny niche, when it comes to the gamescape in general. So saying it is somehow "not original" is strange sentiment. Also, it was never "new", since this is what all games were since they middle of the 80s.

Design of what exactly?
Because, sprites look very good and colorful with rather fluid animation.
I am not really sure what is "cheap and poor", unless you think all 2D games should be like Street Fighter 3 or The King of Fighters 13.

It's coming out on every console and PC. You don't need a Switch.

They just cancelled the other versions cubed, it's now a Switch exclusive. That's why people are upset on twitter.

2-year exclusive though. I expect we'll see a "Definitive Edition" when it finally comes to multi-platform, right around the time that sequel is due out.

EDIT:
I think this is a new interview with the Dev. team:

That's awesome, if true.

I can't help it, after all the overblown "I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW!11!" hysteria, the fact that most of those same people spunking their pants over this game won't even be able to play it without first spending $300 on a console they otherwise don't care about is so delicious it absolutely must be fattening. Take THAT, FW Zombies!

...BUT, let the record also show that I am indeed a rotten human being.

I like the realization of "wait, we're both pitching to work on this? What if... we just did it together!?"

Yeah, I didn't think so. That would be the absolute most boneheaded play any developer could make. Switch has its own niche but nobody who wants to actually turn a profit would ever make a downloadable game exclusive to just that system. Especially since most of the Switch's audience is made up of people too young to know or care about FW TMNT, or TMNT in general quite frankly.

Still, I'd laugh my ass off from the schadenfreude of it all.
