Classic beat-’em-up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge developer Tribute Games and Dotemu revealed a seventh playable character at Summer Game Fest on Thursday. Casey Jones, the hockey mask-wearing, stick-wielding vigilante, will join Donatello, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Splinter, and April O’Neil in this homage to classic Konami Ninja Turtle games.
“Casey’s combination of range, speed, and power makes him a formidable all-around threat,” the developer said in its announcement.
That wasn’t the only announcement Tribute Games and Dotemu made. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One on June 16. Shredder’s Revenge will be backward compatible with the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, as well as available on Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass. The game will set you back $24.99.
