TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge will feature a track from Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface and Raekwon

True, it’s not Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap” (“Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go!”) or even Partner in Kryme’s “Turtle Power” from the ’90s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films, but it’s a collaboration that has all the makings to be every bit as apropos and classic: TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge will feature a track from Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah and Raekwon, which publisher Dotemu shared on its social media this past Tuesday, in anticipation of the game’s June 16th release.

The entire album will be available through Kid Katana Records, where you can currently pre-order the CD, Standard Vinyl and Limited Edition Vinyl editions, which are set to release on October 28th, 2022. The album will also be available on most digital streaming formats alongside the game’s release.

TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, which was announced back in March of 2021, will pay homage to classic TMNT beat ’em ups like Turtles in Time and the original TMNT arcade game, with modern day infusions, a la Dotemu’s other revitalized beat ’em up, Streets of Rage 4.

As Dotemu puts it, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge features groundbreaking gameplay rooted in timeless classic brawling mechanics, brought to you by the beat ’em-up experts at Dotemu (Streets of Rage 4) and Tribute Games (part of the studio used to work on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game and TMNT Game Boy Advance). Bash your way through gorgeous pixel art environments and slay tons of hellacious enemies with your favorite Turtle, each with his own skills and moves – making each run unique! Choose a fighter, use radical combos to defeat your opponents and experience intense combats loaded with breathtaking action and outrageous ninja abilities. Stay sharp as you face off against Shredder and his faithful Foot Clan alone, or grab your best buds and play with up to six players simultaneously!”

The “six players simultaneously” feature in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge means that players will get to play as, naturally, all four Ninja Turtles (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael and Donatello) as well as hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (who was revealed in his very own trailer) through either online cooperative or couch co-op play.

What do you think of the announcement that TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge will feature a track from Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface Killah and Raekwon the Chef? Does this further prove that Wu-Tang is for the children (and man-children)? Sound off in the comments.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
