The game will include the legendary 8-bit, 16-bit, and arcade games from the 90s. Now you have a chance to replay or play these retro games for the first time with modernized gameplay.
“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is a franchise created by Kevin Brooks. Since its first release as a comic book in 1984, the TMNT has taken over the world. For nearly 40 years, endless TV series, video games, movies, and comics have entertained millions of people. For this title, Konami partnered up with Digital Eclipse, which is the company behind Street Fighter’s 30th Anniversary Collection. So, what do we know about TMNT: The Cowabunga Collection? Let’s check it out!
The game includes 13 TMNT games in total! All these games from various consoles are modernized in several ways. These improvements are: rewinding and being able to save anytime, which might sound normal, but many old games didn’t have this option. Also, button mapping, HD texture updates, and online play for four titles: TMNT (Arcade), TMNT: Turtles in Time (Arcade), TMNT: The Hyperstone Heist, and TMNT Tournament Fighters (SN). The games will also include a digital game guide that will help in your playthrough. By the way, these old games are harder than you think.
