Turtle fans are not holding back and they won’t cut those not playing the latest shell-kicking hit any slack. Publisher Dotemu has announced that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge from developer Tribute Games, in partnership with Nickelodeon, sold over a million copies in one week across all platforms.
While Dotemu didn’t provide any statistics as to how each version is stacking up against one another in terms of unit sales, the company has noted that the critically acclaimed beat-em-up throwback to the classic era of TMNT video games has been a totally tubular success for the company.
Cyrille Imbert, CEO of Dotemu, had the following to say regarding the game’s major milestone:
“TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge is the game I dreamed of working on ever since I began watching the original cartoon and funneling coins into the TMNT arcade cabinets as a kid. We are immensely grateful to Nickelodeon for the opportunity to honor an era of TMNT that profoundly impacted the lives of everyone at Dotemu, and to our friends at Tribute Games for expertly capturing the classic thrill of the Turtles’ battles with the Foot Clan in a new experience that feels completely fresh and exciting to play.”
