There are six available characters when you start Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. You can choose any of them from the start in story mode and arcade mode, but there’s a seventh character to unlock: the hockey-stick-wielding vigilante, Casey Jones.
So how do you unlock Casey Jones? You unlock Casey Jones by simply beating the story mode with any of the six other characters. Difficulty doesn’t matter, and there are no secret criteria to follow. Once you roll credits after Episode 16, you’ll add him to the roster for future playthroughs in single-player or multiplayer, story and arcade.
You’ll also get the Beware Lawbreakers trophy/achievement for doing so. You can also use him to get another trophy/achievement, Finally Getting Along!, for cheering up a teammate playing as Raphael, which is sure to make any TMNT fan smile. You’ll also need to beat the game with Casey to get the Complete Cast! trophy/achievement for seeing all of the character endings in story mode.
- Range: 3
- Speed: 2
- Power: 2
Casey Jones has some of the longest reach in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge and one of the better rising attacks compared to other characters like Raphael. However, unlike Donatello, another 3-star range character with great range throughout his basic combos, Casey’s initial attack in a combo string is on the shorter side, both for a stationary attack and forward attack.
It can lead to some accidental hits if you’re not careful. His rising and diving attacks are some of the best in the game, and they can move him around the screen quickly while hitting enemies far away.
He’s slightly faster than Donatello at 2 stars compared to Donatello’s 1-star speed.
Casey has a reasonably large, stationary AoE super, which is on par with Leonardo’s and a bit bigger than Donatello’s and Michelangelo’s. It makes Casey a good choice for crowd control, though perhaps not decidedly so over other characters with similar AoEs. For the most part, those comfortable with Leonardo or Donatello will find success with this character.
Now that you’ve kicked enough shell to unlock Casey Jones, it’s time to find all of the secrets, cameos, and collectibles hidden throughout TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge.
