What a world it would be if we could get our hands on this game. The 8-bit aficionado Nicalis Inc. recently tweeted out a screen for an imagined Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game, and it looks like the kind of game Mikey would love to play – when he’s not whipping thugs with his nunchucks.
Nicalis gave fans a shot of a pixelated street with the turtles going toe-to-toe against Shredder. The image includes an 8-bit Shredder, a pissed-off Raphael, and a Michelangelo adorably screaming for pizza. As the team behind retro-inspired gems like Cave Story+ and 1001 Spikes, Nicalis would be the perfect indy developer to create this pixelated portrait of our favorite mutated turtles. But alas, the screenshot is probably just for fun and doesn’t necessarily represent a real project.
For now we’ll have to be content with the existing 8-bit TMNT games or play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan. We’ll probably do the former.
