The Cowabunga Collection is pure nostalgia

It’s even got Tournament Fighters for NES

Though it’s looking great, Shredder’s Revenge isn’t the only game to look forward to this year for brawler fans. A wide ranging TMNT compilation is also on the way, as announced during today’s State of Play. Konami tapped Digital Eclipse for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collectiona package containing arcade, console, and handheld titles.

What retro games are included? Essentially, all of them. There’s “13 console and arcade games and their regional versions,” which spans Turtles in Time, The Hyperstone Heistthe NES games, the Game Boy games, and multiple versions of Tournament Fighters. strap in:

The arcade inclusions — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time — will let “you and up to three friends have the arcade experience at home on your couch or online,” according to Konami. “The 8-bit TMNT II: The Arcade Game, TMNT III: The Manhattan Projectand the 16-bit TMNT IV: Turtles in Timeand The Hyperstone Heist will also have all the local multi-player fun of yesteryear.”

“Additionally, never-before-seen development art, sketches and game design material will also be included.”

We’re dipping back into the 8- and 16-bit era, which is a partially comfy, partially nerve-wracking time for TMNT games. Thankfully, that’s where modern features can lend a hand.

“Combined with Rewind and Save Anytime, we’re designing custom game guides harkening to the aesthetic of the video game magazines from the ’80s and ’90s to help get players through some of those notoriously tricky parts,” notes Konami senior producer Charles Murakami. “You know what we’re talking about!” That damn dam level.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection will launch on PS4, PS5, Steam, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S in 2022. It’s $40, and it’ll have a physical edition.

As much as I don’t like modern-day Konami, at least we’re still getting retro collections.
