April O' Neil Joins the Turtles in Shredder's Revenge to Kick Some Major League Butt
April O' Neil is one of the most iconic characters in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, so it's only fitting that the fearless reporter joins the heroes in a half-shell in the upcoming TMNT: Shredder's Revenge.
Her inclusion was revealed by developer DotEmu by way of a new gameplay trailer for the beat em' up scheduled to release sometime in 2022 for PC and Nintendo Switch. Her inclusion is a welcome one considering the roster for TMNT games has been static for so long.
April uses a microphone and other TV broadcast gear to take down the Footclan alongside the Turtles, and she has what looks to be a fair few special attacks. She can also revive the Turtles by giving them pizza.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge looks a lot like Turtles in Time, perhaps the very best TMNT beat em' ever made (and what some would argue as the best beat em' up of all time, ahem). But no matter where you stand on the spectrum in that regard, Shredder's Revenge does look good, something reinforced by the great job DotEmu did on Streets of Rage 4.
Shredder's Revenge doesn't yet have a firm release date outside of the broad 2022 window, so let's hope there's more news on the immediate horizon. Stay tuned.
