One of the best games of 2022 is added Netflixits expanding game catalog, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.
The game was released on June 16, 2022 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and will first come to mobile platforms earlier this month. Netflix has secured the rights to the game on mobile, and if you have a Netflix subscription you will be able to download Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge at no extra cost.
Beat ’em up was developed by Tribute Games and served as a spiritual successor to Konami Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game. Shredder’s Revenge joins a long list of games acquired by Netflix, including another standout title from 2022, Immortality. Other games that are also included in Netflix’s list include For your eyes, Moonlights, Spirit danger, OX FREEand Twelve minutes.
Netflix has been trying to break into the gaming market for a while now, and has made several games based on Stranger Things franchise, and acquired many games over the past couple of years. But Netflix’s push into the gaming sphere has not always been entirely positive, then Stranger Things Death in daylight the expansion was infamously removed from all platforms in 2021.
Interestingly, fans aren’t too excited about the game coming to Netflix in the responses to the streaming service’s tweet, with most fans complaining that Netflix has spent money on expanding their gaming service instead of shows that fans already love like Warrior nun, which was canceled last year. The tweet of one Warrior nun fan reads, “orrrrr you can #SaveWarriorNun and finish what you started…”
Other fans have been quick to point out the recent cancellation of Inside job also. Fans may have a point that Netflix’s priorities are in the wrong place, as it is known for its original programming and not its mobile games. It would be interesting to see how many people know that Netflix offers games as part of their service in the first place.
But, Shredder’s Revenge is currently available to play anyway. If you’re worried about the mobile controls, you can always get a controller extension for your phone, but otherwise the game works well, like the other versions of the game. Shredder’s Revenge is by all accounts a lively game with a fantastic soundtrack, with Mega Ran, Ghostface Killah and Raekwon all lending their vocal talents.
