Beat ’em up fans were treated to a proper blast from the past earlier this year when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge launched for PC, Switch, and last-gen consoles, delivering an excellent brawler that not only tickled the nostalgia bone, but was also an impressive game in its own right. While it is playable on current-gen consoles, that is currently only possible via backward compatibility- though that will be changing soon.
Well, for the PlayStation side of things, at least. Developer Tribute Games has announced that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is getting a native launch for the PS5 on November 15. How is it different from the game’s PS4 version? Not at all, as it turns out. “This version is identical to the PS4’s and doesn’t include any additional feature or content,” Tribute Games says, so this is clearly a release meant for PS5 owners who haven’t yet purchased the game.
The developer also confirms that a free PS4-to-PS5 upgrade won’t be offered.
In our review of TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, we awarded it a score of 9/10, saying, “TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is simultaneously an excellent throwback to the classic Turtles beat ’em ups and a solid new modern brawler in its own right.” Read the full review through here.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Shortly after its launch, publisher Dotemu announced that the game had sold over a million units in its first week.
There's no free upgrade. So if you wish to play on both PS4 and PS5 then the PS4 version is the way to go.
